Letter to my Daughter

100E2245My Dearest Daughter-

Today we had your 11th birthday party.  We had so much fun getting this planned and what a wonderful day.  I just had to write down my emotions and feelings of why you hold so much of my heart.  When I first held you honey you made me a mommy on Mother’s Day week.  You have always been a joy in my life for the last 11 years.

You have always been a girl to be on stage.  Since you were a little girl you loved to sing to us all and perform for all of us.  My heart is so happy that you want to sing for God now.  You are just growing up more and more everyday.  With the activities you want to partake in your general attitude of life.  I am glad to call you my daughter.

Today you had all your grandparents around you and they love you more than you can ever comprehend.  Today at your party you are so gracious and so happy with every gift you receive.  I am so happy that you appreciate anything given to you.  There is never a comment that something should have been bigger or better infact your comment today was, “I am spoiled and I am just so excited for every gift I received.”  I love that you would be happy with a paper bag is that is what someone thought to give you.

Today when you were swimming in the pool with your brother you are just so good with him.  I know brothers can be annoying but you are also best friends.  You are so good with your brother.  I know he can be a handful at times but you are his biggest defender.  You would beat someone up in an alley if they said something against your brother.  I love that your love for him is that great.  He has a built in superhero as a sister.  You two have love between each other I could only dream siblings can have.

My dearest daughter you have given me such joy this past 11 years I can’t wait for the next decade and see what is in store for us and what new adventures we will have.

I love you so much and keep loving the Lord and life.

Love your Mommy.

 

What’s your mountain

My boys, husband and son, went out ice fishing this morning.  What a glorious day today.  Not a cloud in the sky and no wind and 42 degrees.  Now for Minnesota standards that is a regular heat wave where coats, hats and mittens will stay in the car.  Greta and I made our way to church this morning.  I heard a wonderful message that I think can be applicable to all of us in some part of our life.  

What Is Our Mountain or our Giant??  

We all have obstacles in this life.  If you don’t have something that is testing us I believe your head is in the sand and not looking at life head on.  We may have trouble in relationships, financial, health, children, jobs…the list is endless.  These are our Mountains or Giants in life.  David faced Goliath that was his literal giant.  He kept his eyes on God and he was able to defeat that giant right between his eyes.  We have a God that will help us through all these trials of life.  He holds our hand or he holds us if we need the support.  He will help us pass threw these mountain passes and by these Giant armies that look like they are out for us.  We need to keep our eyes on Christ and not the trials that life throw at us.  God will reach out grab our hand and lead us threw this thing called life.  

I have learned numerous times in life that sometimes it takes falling to your knees and remembering that we aren’t in this alone and we need reinforcement to help.  I need help with my marriage, children, job, health and all of life.  I don’t have the answers.  

I pray I can keep my eye on God and reach my hand out and ask for help.  That is the way I will defeat my giant and cross my mountain.  

I hope you all can start this week with peace and knowledge that we have an Awesome God and he Reigns from Heaven to Earth.
