measure of beauty

Lindsey Kane posted this video on Facebook today since it features one of her songs. (I was blessed by Lindsey's beautiful music and heart when I attended She Speaks in North Carolina two years ago. Move Me Aside is one of my favorite CDs.)

Here is what the woman who made the video wrote about it:

"This is footage from all three orphanages and slum schools that I visited in Uganda and Kenya in June and July this year. It really sums up the absolute beauty and worth they each have in God's eyes. I was blown away by these kids. They have all been through unimaginable experiences but they still hold an incredible hope and joy that I think a lot of us lack."

Most of these children do not have a home, a family, fresh water, clean clothes or adequate food to eat. The smiles on their beautiful faces, however, assure me that they know the secret of truly LIVING A BLESSED LIFE!

Ah, may I follow after their courageous examples and rejoice in my own struggles and suffering. Truly, life could be much, much worse.

Deeply humbled, and blessed,

I found myself smiling and tearing up at the same time.
