To Our Girls

Abby, Kyndal, and Anna Claire, what an absolute joy it is to mother you.  You 3 are truly a wonderful gift from our Lord.  You are 3 precious souls who we pray for daily.  Pray that you will put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ and surrender to Him daily.  Seek wisdom from Him for every decision you make.  Store up treasures in Heaven and not on this earth.  Follow Him and love Him with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength.

Your Dad and I love you 3 more than you will ever know.  However, Jesus loves you wayyyy more than we do.  It's hard to comprehend, but trust me He does.  God is ALWAYS good, even in the hard, sad, tragic, and difficult times.  He is a God of grace, mercy, love, and forgiveness.  Never forget though, there are always consequences for the decisions you make, and some consequences you may not like, but learn from them and move on.  Seek to grow closer and walk more intimately with Jesus at all times in your life.  Always ask Him what you are suppose to learn from all situations you face. 

Be humble, loving, forgiving, and kind to people.  Don't be judgemental or critical of others.  Show people the love of Christ through your love, spirit, and attitude.  Actions often speak much louder than words, so show Christ's love to others.

We had some sweet friends come by recently who needed to talk, and you girls were almost done eating your dinner at the table.  You saw that it was important and you all 3 went out on the deck to play once you were finished.  That made my heart happy, seeing the maturity and growth of your sweet spirits.  Often times showing the love of Christ means just listening and praying for others. 

Again, I can't tell you enough how much we love you 3 and are extremely grateful to have you as our daughters.  Love you always and forever, your Mom:):):)
