A Gift

Yes, I know... I go through some really dry spells, then.... WHAMMO! Two in one day!!!

I couldn't resist though, and I felt God tugging on my heart on my way home from a birthday party tonight. I knew that He wanted me to share this with my sister.

T'riss, you know I love you. You know I pray for you consistently... without ceasing. You also know that I've been through my own storms. You have seen me "weather" them. Sometimes you saw something good... sometimes you saw scary things in me. It is now that I'm watching you go through some of your "firsts". I am proud of you and the grace that you have shown. You are confident in the One who loves you most... the One who knows each one of your days and the steps that you will take. The One who carries you everyday.

You also aren't afraid to admit that you're afraid... that you're feeling a bit lost. I love that about you too. It's the people out there who are always pretending that everything's okay that you have to worry about in life. You aren't one of them.

I thought of this song when I was praying for you tonight, and then... it came on the radio. It was a gift. It was a gift to me (I still need these reminders too). It was a gift to you. I know that it will bring peace to your heart, as it does mine.

No. Matter. What. ... He NEVER lets go.

I love you ~
