Unconditional love is a precious, rare thing.
Christina Koch is the NASA astronaut who recently returned to solid ground after spending 328 days in space. Just thinking about that makes me a little nervous. I get antsy in an elevator...not because I'm claustrophobic, but because I need to get to the "next thing,"...but that's another story.
Ms. Koch was brave and strong and devoted and did important work spending nearly a year "out there." But, the part of her adventure that touched millions of hearts, was the moment she reunited with her dog, Sadie Lou. The video is an absolute delight.
At the Ranch, the four-legged staff that work with our children know a little about unconditional love. The horses like Odin and Lena and Starbucks listen to the children's pains and fears and hurts. They gently walk with them. They carry them and their troubles without complaint. The therapy dogs like Bailey and Mack nuzzle and snuggle and love being petted. And they listen too.
They accept each child for who they are. Unconditionally.

Please pray for our children.
In His love,
