“We are not rich by what we possess but by what we can do without.” Immanuel Kant

“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy;

it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. 

We can cure physical diseases with medicine, 

but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love.

There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread

but there are many more dying for a little love.

The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty -

it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. 

There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.”

Mother Teresa

Beautiful pictures, words that ring true. We think it's hard to solve poverty issues, but every single day we have a chance to make a big difference. Thank you for this.

It's said that there is a God shaped vaccum inside each of us.

It's a hole that only His love can fill.

Terrific kiddo shots that just ooze Love. Makes me want to hug them all.

Have a wonderful week Becky. Love you.
