A letter on Thanksgiving to my Daughter

I don’t often like to include my personal notes/letters in my blog. But when I wrote this letter this morning I felt Holy Spirit inspired. It made me wonder if the truths of what were written would bless someone else. I hope that person might be you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Asking God to richly bless you in unexpected ways. So thankful for our Savior today and always.

“My Dear Libby,

Happy Thanksgiving! I am so thankful for you! I missed you so much when I was in CA. It is my hope that someday we will all go as a family and explore the west coast together! There are many beautiful places to explore.

I know that you think having 5 kids is crazy and some days it is a bit wild but I wouldn’t give up having the five of you for ANY THING!

I hope to grow as a Mommy in loving you and your brothers better. I am still learning how to be a parent. I don’t have it all figured out but God is faithful! He loves you perfectly. He never messes up. He is NOT angry or disappointed with you! He says YOU are amazing!

He loved us so much that He gave us Jesus. Jesus was perfect, without sin in every way. Can you imagine never disobeying? That’s what He did. He never disobeyed. He lived a perfect life and then He died in our place.

We will never have to experience God’s anger at our sin (our wrong doing and living) when we accept Jesus. He took our places and suffered the consequences we deserved. And then He did not stay dead. He rose again.

He came back to life. He beath death! Death has no victory- Jesus overcame even death.
And that is our hope- we never truly die! Our spirit (our inner being, who we really are) never dies. When these earthly bodies die we go to be with Jesus.

And here is more amazing news- God the Father gave us Jesus and Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is our comforter. He gives us peace. He tells us which way to go. He helps us to love and obey God.

Isn’t that great?! God is on our team! He loves us and is for us. We are on the winning team with Jesus!

God gives us such amazing blessings. I am so happy to celebrate Thanksgiving with you- my precious lamb of God.

I love you.
