Let me learn by paradox
that the way down is the way up,
that to be low is to be high,
that the broken heart is the healed heart,
that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit,
that the repenting soul is the victorious soul,
that to have nothing is to possess all,
that to bear the cross is to wear the crown,
that to give is to receive,
that the valley is the place of vision.
~The Valley of Vision
P. S. This is coming a bit late, but please click on this link and see more faces of little children who have been overlooked and unchosen.
Did you know—
Boys are less likely to be chosen than girls.
The older the child, the less likely he or she will be chosen.
The greater the child’s needs, the less likely he or she will be chosen.
This should not be.
