Their Eyes

This is a post that I wrote about all our foster children. 

One of the first things I notice when they arrive are their eyes.

They are haunted.

Often they have seen things that are darker than I will ever see.

When you play---they watch you---not sure if you are safe.

They don't trust adults, or they trust them too much.

When they wake from a nap their eyes are clouded from a dream they can't shake.

But, when I sing to them........

Songs about a Jesus who will always be there for them..........

Even if I can't be.............

Their eyes soften and relax.

They seem to instinctively know Him.

Even though they haven't seen Him with their eyes.
