I have been thinking so much about our reunion - we had such a great time and enjoyed seeing everyone again, but I am drawn always back to how the girls reacted to each other. I was just amazed - it was like those girls saw each other and all fear was gone - even the girls that often are usually more shy in public. My mind says there is just no way they can remember each other, but the reality was that they reacted toward each other like it was just normal to be together. Even Chloe, who can often be clingy in public, left my side and played with her Pingjiang friends like they did it together everyday. Now, as we are all back home, I just sit and ponder ~ do they have a bond that goes back much deeper than anything I can imagine? After spending almost a year together at the beginning of their lives, many even sleeping in the same room everyday during that time, how deep does that go? I will probably never even know....but it sure was something to see.
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
