One Less

I came across this video last week.

I've been running the words of this song through my head.

The lyrics are powerful.

The song is amazing by itself, but you really need to see and listen to the behind the scene video.

One Less by Matthew West (The Story Behind The Song) from emicmg on Vimeo.

Now check out this adoption video set to the words by Mathhew West.

If you are not tearing up--you will be.

I keep thinking of our girls- Hannah and Sara waiting for their family to make them "One Less" orphan in the world.

Can you picture that day?

When they walk into a room after leaving everything they have ever known behind, and are greeted with big hugs.

With hope in their future whether they realize it or not.

It will be a glimpse of Heaven. It will be an Amazing Day! One that only our Heavenly Father can orchestrate.

So here's the video . . .

Whether you are called to adopt or not, God has set before you the task to help the orphan.

How can you help make a difference?

Here are some ideas . . . Sponsor a child, be a foster parent, work in an orphanage on a short term mission trip, send money to bring in a well for a village, help families to bring home their children, provide chickens, goats, or other animals to keep families in need be able to feed their children and stay together as a family. There are many options. You just need to do ONE.

Above all--pray and ask God what He would have you to do. I guarantee you that He will answer your prayer because God cares for the orphans.

Maybe God will call you to make One Less.
