::Live with Us::

I was reading "Bent Hope" and having my heart broken. Gabriel was on my lap and noticed that I was crying.

"What's wrong?"

"Oh, mommy's reading about people who don't have homes and have to live on the streets."

And I suddenly found myself overcome with a desire for affirmation. Please, Lord, let this boy respond. Let me see that he hears and understands me. Let me see that you have placed tenderness in his heart.
And then;

"Well, they don't have money. But we have money, and we have a house. So, they can come live here!"

Thank You.
