Caleb and I are sitting here on the couch. He is sick with a fever and sore throat. He wanted to watch a movie that we have watched before called 'Letters To God'. If you haven't seen it, then I recommend it, but not without a box of kleenex. Watching the movie has prompted me to write my own letter to God. There is much to be said...
You fascinate me. I have been told since I was a little girl of all that You are capable of. I saw some of those things as a little girl. I prayed for a little sister, and just when I thought it would never be... You surprised us all. I saw it as a young adult when I experienced hurts and You were the one that healed me. Now I am 40 years old. I am learning even more now about the magnitude of YOU! Nothing that happens in this life of mine is a mistake. There are plenty of times when it feels that way, but that's not Your way.
Today I met the lovely family that wants to purchase this house that we have made home. They are remarkable people with hearts for you. What a relief to see their faces, but even more to see their hearts. In the revealing of their hearts though, God... I saw so much more. I continue to be amazed at the story that unfolds before me. This story... YOUR story.
Once again I see how big YOU are! I am reminded of what YOU are about. I am comforted by the knowledge that YOU go before me and set the path straight for me to follow. On a daily basis you offer your grace and forgiveness. You love me. You care for me.
Thank you, God. It sounds so small, I know. I can only tell you that every day my level of gratitude for the relationship that I have with you increases. It grows with every breath that I take. It opens up as far as the sky is wide each day that I receive this incredible love and care from YOU...
I love you. ~
