As I’ve had the privilege of handing out blankets from the Knit-A-Square donations, I’ve seen first hand the joy on these kid’s faces from receiving a personalized blanket.
The children and even local police officers have come together to help sew squares together. I love that it’s not just us making them, but others have gotten involved!

But what about the ones that grow up without the childhood that allows them the luxury of believing in the fantastic? How much harder is it to trust God when everyday of your life you’ve struggled for food, shelter,and safety? How much more difficult is it to relate to a God of goodness, mercy, love, and justice when you’ve never experienced it in your own life? When you’ve lost the innocence required to take that leap of faith?
Every night this week, as you lay your head down to sleep and snuggle underneath your covers, pray for the orphans of this world to feel God’s love wrapping around them in a fantastic, supernatural way. Pray for a renewal of their childhood, that God would protect their ability to dream and believe in the things unseen.
