… if it shall come to pass that for Christ’s sake and the gospel’s you shall endure suffering in any shape, shrink not, but rejoice in the honor thus conferred upon you, that you are counted worthy to suffer with your Lord, and joy also in this – that your sufferings, your losses, and persecutions shall make you a platform, from which the more vigorously and with greater power you shall witness for Christ Jesus.
- Charles Spurgeon

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours.

We rejoice with great sadness that our family is split this week. Half of our home lives in heaven and half here temporarily lives here on earth. May we lift our eyes to heaven and be thankful for what Christ has done. For He alone has bore all of our sin, and we do not walk through this life alone. Praise to our King who gives and takes away.

My Mary Anna,

I have not written you in a while, because your baby brother is all-consuming, but it does not mean that I do not think about you all the time. You are in my heart always, and you are ALWAYS missed. I just want to hold you so badly today, but I am so thankful for your life. When I get weak and think that I am not strong enough to keep going, you are my inspiration baby girl. There is so much that I want to tell you and say, but today I just needed to tell you that we miss you. We miss you bad, but we will Keep Walking.

with love,
your mommy
