Joe and Jessa I can't thank you enough for the special love that you showed me on Mother's day. Thank you for the beautiful cards you made for me with the heart felt messages. You will never know how much it means to me! I love being your mom but I wish that I could do more for you.
As I was writing a letter to my mom it became abundantly clear that I will never be able to be there for you like she was for me. To be honest it broke my heart. I have been sick with ALS so long that most of the memories you have of me are of you taking care of me. In reality other people have stepped up to take care of you and meet your needs in a way I can't. Selfishly I want to be there for you but God has something different for us to share!
I heard a sermon about our life being a vapor. Very few people in history are remembered long after they are gone. So, even if I was physically able to do the things I want to do for you, it would not necessarily be a vivid memory for you in the future! However, the one who has impacted the world for all time is Jesus. The best way for me to make a difference in your life is to help you SEE and REMEMBER that JESUS is ALWAYS with you, for you, and loves you BIG. You are His, ALWAYS!
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
