I Got Mail!!!
Yesterday was a very hard day on many levels. VERY hard. Some days are just like that. That's the reality of my life here.
But you know what?? God knows ALL of that, and His Grace is sufficient for me, and His power is made perfect in my weakness!
And so I brought my weary body to my bed last night finally around 11:30 and found this card on my pillow.
It's from my 16 year old daughter Elisha. We rescued Elisha from foster care when she was 10. She and her twin brother. She is an amazing young woman! She has an incredible gift of encouragement. You can ask so many people about that! She has over 35 penpals! Let me share with you what this card says: On the front it says: Praying for you, and then it says: Sometimes it's hard to understand why God allows us to go through certain situations...
On the inside it says: Dear Mom, I was just wanting you to know I'm praying for you. I was also just realizing how MANY things you do each and every day to keep this place running smoothly. So many things you do that go unnoticed, or unrealized. You are an amazing Mom. I honestly coudn't and wouldn't ask for another one! You've done so much to invest in my life. And not just my life...All of us! And you don't just teach me daily chores and things! You also instill in me Biblical character and qualities that'll last forever!! I'm so thankful for you and all that you've done to invest in me! I love you so much Mom! May the Lord richly bless you as you seek to serve, honor, and glorify Him!
Little is Much when God is in it! I love you! Elisha Winslow
printed on the inside of the card is: but please remember that no matter what, God is there with you through it all and that others who care are keeping you in their prayers!
Bible verse: "Call unto Me, and I will answer thee and shew thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not!" Jeremiah 33:3
Of course I cried buckets, got down on my knees and thanked my God for giving us Elisha, and then went upstairs and woke her up to hug her and thank her!
