Who reminds you that you're loved??


I'm gonna go out on a limb here and assume that I'm not the only woman who's questioned my worth-y-ness, my lovability or the point to my silly life on this planet.

Some days are "big question" days. For whatever reason, I seem to get plagued with all the meaning-of-life thoughts at once. On those days reading some red letters in the Bible and praying thankful prayers are my saving grace.

But still, dare I say it, sometimes I need a  little something else. God is always enough for us, but He knew from the beginning of creation that sometime I'd still be a little basket-casey even with His Spirit in me. So, he gave us each other.

He gave me friends and family that see all my junk and somehow all of that's dim in the light of the good stuff God put in me--- the kindness, the ridiculous ideas, the hugs, the creativity.

So on those days when I'm freaking out, my dear, most patient man award-winning husband makes me repeat out loud:

"I am Charlotte the loved."

It's silly, but true. It actually helps. 

I pray that ALL of us would have someone in our lives to remind us of our deepest, truest identity--- sons and daughters of God.

Who do you have in your life that reminds you that you're loved??

It Takes a Village

You’ve heard the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child,” but in this story, a little girl is making waves in hers. 
Lily is a 12 year-old-girl who comes from a poor family in India. She is the third child of five with three other sisters and one brother.  Her father works as a mechanic earning very little; what money he does make is put toward his alcohol and tobacco addictions, leaving her mother to provide for the family.
Lily’s mother earns 100-150 Indian rupees per day cutting pieces of cloth, which is roughly $1.44 to $2.15 American dollars. With this meager amount, she must provide for her family of seven. Lily and her sister often help their mother with her work cutting cloth. 

Lily learned about our classes through her sister and started attending regularly. She is always on time and eager to learn! Our teachers encouraged her and taught her literacy skills, and she is now able to read words in Hindi. Her teachers say that she continues to improve, and she spends two hours …
