Thank You

Thank you for encouraging me to spread my wings and grow into the new creation God has created me to be.

First of all, thank You, Jesus. Because You live, I live. Because You love, I love. Because You had a rescue plan to save a sinner like me, I have hope – I have joy and abundant life. Because You conquered the grave, I have an eternity to look forward to where I will see You face to face. Thank You for loving me enough to set me free. You are my everything!

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership…It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart. Philippians 1:3-7

With sincere thanks and deep gratitude

To my mother, Jacque

Your unconditional love and deep passion inspire me to be more like Jesus. To my loving, faithful family – Dad, Jack, Kim – all of you; thank you for standing by me when I could not stand. Thank you for praying and trusting God on my behalf. I love you.

To my husband, Jim

Your encouragement has meant more than words can say. God is so good. To think that we have come this far – what a miracle. If I had a do-over in this life – I would still want you to snuggle with.

To my daughters, Erin and Camryn

I thank God for both of you– I love you so much. You shine like the stars in the heavens. I’m so proud to be your mother.

To my Hunterboy

I miss you and love you more than words can say. Thank you for being so brave and for teaching us in the most profound ways what’s most important in life. I can’t wait to see you and hold you forever.

To my friends

You know who you are – thank you for the meatloaves, chicken noodle soup, cards, e-mails, faces to the Father in prayer, shoulders to cry on, ears that listen, counseling that made the difference, cars that drive my kids where they need to go, making boundaries for me when I couldn’t make them on my own…thank you for being there in good times and bad – in sickness and in health – for better or worse…thank you for knowing me and loving me anyway. I love you.
