Little Ones

Several months ago I was introduced to this verse...



The full verse (and the NASB version which I actually prefer, but found after I had already written out the NIV) is...
Arise, cry aloud in the night
At the beginning of the night watches;
Pour out your heart like water
Before the presence of the Lord;
Lift up your hands to Him
For the life of your little ones
Who are faint because of hunger
At the head of every street.


One of the ladies at my church said she used to have this verse by her kitchen sink when she had small children. She said she read it every time she was bathing her little ones. At the time I thought "I want to do that" (hang that verse up by my kitchen sink).

So today, as I was watching the news and listening to Sheppard Smith talk about all the children in Haiti that have been orphaned and the babies that don't have access to formula ..the verse came to mind. I finally wrote it out and taped it over the sink.Honestly it has taken a few days for me to comprehend what great devastation people are experiencing. My heart especially goes out to the "little ones."


It makes me even more thankful for my little one who is well fed, happy....and currently very clean. Please disregard the knife sitting dangerously close to his side. I moved it and there was no incident...whew.

Lift up your hands to Him for the life of your little ones....

I like that.

Do this for the little ones in Haiti...

Great verse and thoughts... Love that picture of Stephen, cracks me up that you bathe him in the kitchen sink. At least the knife was not in the sink.
