I’m taking a pause here in Angola, sitting on the ledge in one of our malnutrition clinics for Saving Moses. I’m pausing for lots of reasons, one of which is to have a few minutes to absorb & process. I can get so thick in the middle of all of these babies & moms that I get more than a little overwhelmed. I don’t get overwhelmed by the smells, milk mustaches nor knobby knees or elbows. I get overwhelmed by love – the love of Jesus for each baby, in all of her frail humanity, sometimes suspended in each rapid breath. I get overwhelmed by her eyes looking deep into me with curiosity, some anxiety of the unknown but most of all by the common life we share as humans. We live different lives but we are glued together & anchored in love.
Sometimes a person should pause to reflect, absorb & let the feet get rooted deeper & deeper into genuine love. I find myself deeply in love with Jesus, sitting on the ledge here in Angola & I’d love to have you sitting next to me sharing this experience of deeply rooted genuine love.
