Last week Eagle's Nest Children's Home (where my dear friend Amy Block serves) was asked to take five new children to care for. These precious babies are siblings- ages 1-9- and were found alone.. surviving by eating dirt.
The problem is that technically Eagle's Nest is completely maxed out. We are talking 3 bedrooms and 32 kids people.
I guess the sensible answer may have been... "We just don't have room." No one could have blamed them right??? I mean they are BARELY making it as it is over there... No adoptions are going on and little money coming in. As soon as Amy told me about these little ones my mind immediately remembered someone else who found no room.
I know that's where their minds went too because they moved beds around... made it work... squished and shared. They made room...
It's not about how we celebrate or don't celebrate His birthday. It's not about our traditions or how much we spend. It's about OUR HEART!! It's about OUR HEART... OUR HEART! DO I MAKE ROOM??? Would we have made room for Mary and Joseph that night? What if things were crazy and our lives were full and they were strangers?
We can't truly know what we would have done.. or can we? The truth is we can know each and every day what we would have done... What do we choose each day?
"They are Jesus. Everyone is Jesus in a distressing disguise."
Eagle's Nest has continued to say, "We will make room."
Eagle's Nest has received the amazing news that a donor will match up to $10,000 to help them continue to make room!!! Let's do this thing! Let's make some room!!!
If God is prompting your heart to "make room" for these little ones will you please go HERE to make a donation to help? Would you please share the need so that others can help "make room?"
