LOVE is not confined, nor is it a feeling. LOVE is a commitment based upon a consistent and courageous decision to extend oneself for the well-being of another. That commitment then produces good feelings, not the other way around.
Jesus became the perfect demnstration of God's unconditional LOVE for us by laying down His life for our benefit.
Children can tell when they are LOVED and when they are not. If they do not receive that LOVE they eventually replace it with a wall and feel as if no one could ever LOVE them. They feel as though they are "unloveable". Once that happens, Proof is needed.
A horse can be hard to LOVE sometimes because we misinterpret what they want. A child can be similar. Put them together and walls break down. A mutual understanding can be concluded. Then that "proof" is experienced.
Whether through a horse or through a volunteer, LOVE can be received in the simplest of things. Just brushing a horse is showing LOVE. The horse and child feel it. They share it.WAYR wants each child to receive the unconditional LOVE that is needed.
