Tensions are beginning to mount in anticipation of Therese's upcoming surgery.
Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
I Corinthians 13:7-8b
Because if the roles were reversed, and I couldn't care for my child anymore, and she was left alone, and was sick, I would want someone to help her.
Because we have been blessed so much in this life, how could we withhold a blessing from someone else?
When Casey and I got married, we picked a Bible verse as our mission statement for our marriage:
From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Luke 12:48b
Because we know we have been given so very much and we are compelled to share it.
Because I don't want to be the kind of person who sees pain and walks away.
Because I want my kids to be the kind of people who understand what is important in life and have seen what the body of Christ looks like. I want them to say yes to God and be used by God.
Because I don't want my kids to be afraid of pain. I want to them to go near, and persevere, and bring the comfort and love they have been given.
Because I want to see a miracle.
"When I am afraid,
I will trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust;
I will not be afraid."
Psalm 56: 10
