Spring FA 2015 – Day 3 – So Beautiful

Today I spent time with some of the little girls at the orphanage. They kept asking me to take pictures of them with my cell phone. As soon as I would take the picture, they wanted to see it. They were ecstatic to see themselves. That’s when it dawned on me that they don’t get to see themselves or how they look too much because there are no mirrors at the orphanage. I began to cry, and one of the little girls ran to her room and got a piece of clothing and then used it to wipe away my tears. I cried because I wasn’t sure if they were able to see the beauty that I saw in them both inside and out. Every time I showed them their pictures I would point to the picture and say “Belle.” I would also touch their arms and faces and, again, say “Belle.” There was beauty in those moments. I saw God in those little girls. I realized it wasn’t about me anymore. It was about those little girls and showing them how beautiful they are inside and out, and how much they are loved. Today, those little girls showed me that God is everywhere and His beauty is all around…even in an orphanage in Haiti.         —Ashley Piturro
