As I Sit by the Light of a Candle

September 11, 2013


As I sit by the light of a candle, I can hear someone pass by outside my window. The storm has passed by, but the electricity is still out. Just as I sense how small I am next to the great storm clouds, we feel small as a people since the German government took the children. Frightening things will happen to us, but we have a God we can cry out to. As we can only faintly imagine what our friends are going through there, we know our God turns ALL things out for the good for those who love Him.

Have you seen the eyes of a child

Since their conscience has been cleansed?

Like crystals, they shine at you,

Holding your gaze.

Their teeth show as they smile meekly

Their hand reaches out for yours.


Have you seen a child

Whose eyes are as black as night?

Your heart aches to see the neglect of

Parents who were too busy to love,

From birth they trained their children

to fend for themselves.


Unfit for life, unable to sustain relationships,

but surviving...

Their consciences grow dull as

They sweep things under the rug,

Stuff their attitudes away and perfect

Their ability to lie.


He who confesses his sins finds compassion.

We love restoring our children.
