Starting at 2:00
this is my favorite song
I really don't think anybody can comprehend
how often I dream of going to Mombassa, Kenya.
I miss them more than anything,
and would go in a heartbeat.
Don't you just want to hug all of them at once?
And completely forget all of the materialistic things you want or have?
They don't have stable
or any of the adequate things
we are blessed with.
When it rains,
their homes wash away.
When Kombe's dad got a paper cut,
he didn't make it.
And they are so excited
when they get a loaf of bread
to take home to their family.
their smiles are beaming,
and they are the most humble children in the world.
I have learned so much from them.
My selfishness and greed has increased since I've seen them,
and now I'm in need of another wake-up call.
Don't you think most of the world can use one of those?
I pray I can go there.
