Valued and blessed

I see pictures of children from around the world from all kinds of different cultures; I love seeing some of the colorful clothing, so rich in culture. One of these pictures came from my sponsor child with a big smile on her face and a letter saying, "I feel myself a blessed child".  This comes from a child with no parents, who lives in a poor community in an AIDS affected area. She’s the only girl among brothers in an area where girls don't seem to be valued as much as boys. What people value on earth are not necessarily what God values. If everyone only knew how much they are valued and blessed!

Matthew 10:30,31
"But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. "So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
