My Precious Girl,
My heart is overflowing right now. I have to tell you how much you are loved by not only us, but your church family. Friends in our church collected money to help bring you home. The fact that they thought of you during this Christmas season, that they wanted to share this financial burden with us, and they did so in such a HUGE way brings me to tears at every thought of it. The knowledge that you are loved already so much and by so many people makes my heart feel like it will burst.
I prayed and asked God to give me words to accurately describe what I am feeling, and I feel like He gave me this Psalm....
Praise the LORD, Praise the LORD, o my soul!
I will praise the LORD as long as I live, I will sing praises to my God while I have my being,
Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
...Blesssed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,
who made haeaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them,
...The LORD watches over the sojourners, he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
The Lord will reign forever, your God, to all generations. Praise the LORD!
Tonight I was reminded that you have a heavenly Father that loves you so much, "He UPHOLDS the orphan," and He uses people to show His love. I cannot wait to share with you the love of your Heavenly Father, and of His people!! Praise the LORD!!
Also, tonight, your "Aunt" Kylie gave us a book, a beautiful book that is about you, about a world you dream about, and one day that dream will come true. It is the most precious book I have ever read, and I look forward to the day, I can read it to you. Again, I felt how deeply you are loved already!!
These last 2 years, you have taken up residence in our hearts, and have been loved so much by us, and your brothers, and grandparents.....but tonight, I saw how far reaching that love for you goes. So many people are praying for you, and waiting for you as well.
Praise the LORD, o my soul!
