Letter of Love

Tuesday's Topic: Letter Writing Day

Dear Joyful Monkey,

You are such a JOY to our family. Your humor and love for life are intoxicating. Your bravery is second to none. I can't think of a single person with more joy and courage than you.

I am so thankful that God has given you these precious gifts. I know that He gave you these characteristics because He knew the path you would walk in this life. Cling to Him, when life gets tough. Wait on Him for strength. You will not be disappointed when you seek Him. Isaiah 40:31 tells us "Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary". Remember this when the weariness of managing Diabetes has got you down. Wait on Him to be your strength.

Daddy and I love you so much. We are honored to be your parents; D and all! We wish we could take this disease from you and bare it ourselves. It hurts us to see you hurt. And yet, we know that you will develop a character of immeasurable worth as you battle this daily. We'll be there for you, to help you along the way, as long as the Lord gives us breath.

I want to share the following verse with you because it acknowledges God's strength & protection, along with the joy you so freely exude, because your heart trusts in Him. I could easily see this as your life verse...

Psalm 28:7 "The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him."

I love you more than words can even begin to express! I admire you. I thank God for you. Always seek Him!

With Love, Forever & Always,
