They add up to 55

photo of the month
     If we take a good look at the photo, their ages add up to 55 years. Moses, in a psalm, wrote the following phrase “teach us to number our days”. In those days he had no calculator, but he knew more about counting or numbering than us, because he rounded off the sentence like this: “teach us to number our days so that we may gain a heart of wisdom”.

       In case you’re wondering, we have done our sums properly. They do add up to 55. You just need to count carefully, taking all factors into account. And every age needs wisdom to administer the time available. Time is limited and we can’t do everything. Hence the need for priorities. In some aspects, each generation has to set its own agenda; but everybody needs to use their time well, because it flies by.

     Children don’t know how to administer their time. Not even with a calculator. We need to teach them. And in the meantime, we need to use our maturity, empathy and authority to make sure their months don’t fly by without any meaning. The clock never stops and each live needs to be balanced and built up bearing in mind age and circumstances.

     They say that time is golden. Not really. Time is wisdom. And yes, they do add up to 55… because the little girl adds on two more years. What about you? How are your sums going?

    Our photo of the month is a brief message to convey information and our thanks to all those who support and share in the work of our children's home. Thank you.   -Emmanuel Children's Home-
