“I’m just here to love”
// January 20th, 2012 // Loux Family News
My friend Ruth Armbruster Bergen is reading a book by Katie Davis called “Kisses from Katie.” She shared a portion of it with me. I know that so many of us who are working to see God’s justice walked out, feel this way sometimes. I love this and it’s such a good reminder to us all…of why we do what we do! I thought I’d share it with you..
“Sometimes working in a Third World Country makes me feel like I am emptying the ocean with an eyedropper. And just when I have about half a cup full of water it rains:: more orphaned children from the north migrate to where I live, more abandoned and dead babies are found, more people are infected with HIV. It is enough to discourage even the most passionate and enthusiastic person……love is the reason I just keep filling up my little eyedropper, keep filling it up and emptying my ocean one drop at a time. I’m not here to eliminate poverty, to eradicate disease, to put a stop to people abandoning babies. I’m just here to love.”
