Love Always Trusts, Always Hopes, Always Perseveres

Reading through 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 this morning, I am left feeling immense awe and gratitude.

This last weekend was just FILLED with love.  We were together, our whole family, and we enjoyed every single minute of it.  Hours of sledding, lots of laughs and giggles and, best of all, that feeling if being complete.  I am having a hard time putting it into words, but this feeling of satisfaction and redemption sticks with me.

A week ago, I tumbled into depths of pain as I faced the fact that Nico might not be with us again for a long, long time.  I reached out and asked for prayers and I know that a Prayer Army took that request and prayed fervently. I just know that it is NO coincidence that within a few days, Nico was calling and asking if she could come home.

During our visit this weekend, Nico often started sentences with, “When I come back next weekend…”  On our way home from church yesterday, she confided that she really wished she could stay a day or two longer. A week ago, I was convinced that she wanted nothing to do with us.

All this is to say, our God is a mighty God.  Sometimes we need to be taken right to our breaking point so that we can witness His power and His love.

Again, I thank all of you for your prayers, your comments of encouragement and your emails filled with love. I am blessed by those of you who have reached out to me and more importantly, pleaded and prayed on our behalf. These words cannot accurately tell you how very thankful I am.

Thank you.
