I’ll admit it. I’m jealous. But in the most biblically way possible!
Tomorrow, one of my friends from my home church in the States is going to visit an orphanage where I lived for a couple months in 2008 and have been able to visit twice since then.
It is home to some of the most amazing kids who have had less than amazing pasts. But how they have overcome that past is amazing and they have so. much. potential.
Every time I go there, I feel like I am at home with them. Even though they haven’t always been loved before they came to the orphanage, they know how to love. Unconditionally.
I know that my friend and her team will be just as much a blessing to these kids as the kids will be to them. These kids are always on my heart and in my prayers but have been even more so knowing this trip is right around the corner.
So yes. I’m jealous. I’m jealous that I won’t be able to see the kids and spend time with them while my friend and a few others will be able to. I’m jealous that they will get all the kids’ hugs and love and smiles and laughs.
Yes. I am jealous in the most biblically way possible. But I think any one who has ever met these kids would feel the same way.
