Our church is partnering with the Fort 4 Fitness this September in an effort to save girls from human trafficking in Thailand. We do this as part of a project called Destiny Rescue. What an important mission. I cannot imagine the lives these girls would have without intervention.
I was asked to write a paragraph (I think a means one…hmm) answering the simple question of “Why do you run?”
The following is what my fingers just typed before asking my brain for any permission:
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
