I was feeding Jackie some oatmeal at the hospital today. In the recovery room. And I thought about whether I wanted to be doing this. And the short answer is no.
I do not want to be doing anything like this. Not because I don’t love her but because I do. You see, I will be there for her and all those that I love. I just wish she didn’t need this type of care. It pains me to watch anyone suffer least of all my wife. So if I can help her I will. I just don’t want her to be in this position.
I feel this way about the community we serve. I wish we were not needed. I wish there were no homeless people needing shelter. No hungry people needing food. No kids needing care. But there are. So we serve others. We provide a place where they matter.
I don’t have to help, I get to help.
God loves me, God Loves you. And so do I.
