Bobby and I are settling in. It seems each day is better than the last. I’m not sure how this continues to keep happening, but the Lord is blessing us with the faces of beautiful who keep smiling and keep laughing. It’s amazing to me how these people have so much joy. It just seems each moment is better than the previous and as each passes, my joy grows right along with theirs. It’s true what they say. Joy is contagious. In a place like this I begin to wonder how I could have ever been selfish or self-righteous or prideful or boastful or stingy. In comparison to how we live, these kids have nothing, but yet they all seem so full of life. I have to ask myself where I lost this child like faith. No problems. No worries. Only love and each other. It’s truly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I find myself taking a step back and examining my life and looking at the places I have been and the places I am coming from and when it’s all said and done, none of it compares to the love and joy I see all around me everyday at this school. I wish you could all drop what you’re doing and come spend a day here. Just a day, and you will learn what it means to smile. I’m smiling now. I would encourage you to smile at everyone you meet today. Be a blessing to those around you. Spread the joy the Lord has given you.
I am under the impression Jesus smiled a lot.
I love you all!
