In this world you are an orphan
– eagerly anticipating your adoption as God’s child.
In this world you are a widow
– longing for reunion with your Bridegroom.
In this world you are a stranger
– a pilgrim waiting to become a citizen of heaven.
And in this world, God has called you to care for the orphan, the widow, and the stranger.
– Tom Davis, Fields of the Fatherless
