Patti Sue Arnold serves as the president of Casa de Fe which is a home for abandoned and special needs children in Shell, Ecuador.  On today's Footsteps, she remembers a young girl who died after only twelve days at Casa de Fe.  When Patti Sue angrily asked God, "Why would you even bring me this child if you're just going to take her away?"  The Lord's response to Patti Sue is one of the most profound statements that I think I've ever heard: "I didn't send her to you to heal her; I sent her to you to love."  Wow!  Those words have given me a completely different perspective.  When difficulty come our way, instead of just asking "Why?" let's concentrate on demonstrating God's love in the situation.
