Thank you for spending a little time here, friend. I pray these words inspire you. Take a moment and read the stories – they each take less than a minute. Happy Saturday from Honduras!
“People ask if reconciliation is truly possible in our world today. It all goes back to the table for me. This world is becoming more and more fractured, more distant. I believe in the power of the table –I believe there’s power in gathering together and allowing who we are to be made known.” ~Sarah Harmeyer, Chief People-Gatherer for Neighbor’s Table #alovemission
When we know we are home, we can fill every space with the treasure that was once stolen from us. ~inspired by Lilly Ferrer, founder of Esperanza y Futuro, San Tomas, Guatemala
“I remember all of those feelings as a teen mom – because it’s not fun to let people in, and I feel like God is right there with them and with us. He knows their fear of not wanting to be perceived as needy, as needing to be perceived as an adult even though they’re still kids. I talked to one of the girls about the fact that God has brought us together so we can serve each other.” ~Lisa, founder of Grace’s Table, Grand Rapids, Michigan
“I pray for parents to take responsibility for their children. Most of these children don’t have a home to return to because the parents don’t know how to communicate to someone who speaks a different language. They push their deaf children aside to care for others. When the children tell their stories, sometimes it’s hard not to want to give the parents a punch. But I have to remember that God can change stories. All stories.” ~Miss Mary, Jamaican Christian School for the Deaf, Eden, Jamaica
“From the beginning, God has called for me to serve other people, because Jesus served for us. I am still here. So I will continue learning and giving my life for others. I cannot do big things, but as much as I can do, I will do.” ~ Aunty, founder of House of Grace and Rainbow School, Manali, India
