Psalm 145:16 “You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.”
I ran across the story of Raju late last night and it truly broke my heart. In the midst of all the tragedies in the world, I do not discount those that affect our wildlife. Raju suffered 50 years of torture and abuse but on July 4th he celebrated his own Independence Day. Rescuers witnessed the elephant crying out tears of pain and joy at the thought of being freed from his captors. My heart was so heavy reading the story and tears literally flowed while watching the rescue video but I just had to share. We all have a soft spot for certain causes. There are people who are passionate about children and education. Some are passionate about preserving the earth and the importance of recycling. And then there are those that have a passion for supporting the health and well-being of wildlife, and all animals for that matter. If you’re walking this earth and have never been passionate about anything outside of your little bubble, you’ve been depriving yourself from experiencing true satisfaction in knowing that your life has been a service to someone else. I’ve always been an animal lover. I can’t even watch anything animal related unless it’s guaranteed that whatever it is survives. I’m still scarred by watching the movie “Turner and Hooch” as a small child (Lol). Anyway, I’m doing my part in sharing this truly remarkable story in hopes to aide in raising financial support for his recovery.
