We have invited a few of Lydia's friends to come to visit her, and she has responded with joy. One friend's dad emailed us to share his daughters thoughts on the visit:
Her 5-minute explanation (with no commas, periods or breaths) clearly told me how Joyful it was to see Lydia!!! She said she would replace any Christmas morning with her visit with Lydia today! Also, she was singing a camp song called " And I ... LOVE Jesus" and Lydia did an action (pointing up to God) that goes with the song! Wow! We are joyfully praising God for his many blessings today.
God knows the plans He has for her...We are praising God for so much, and leaning on Him for so much more!
And so are we! I noticed again today, the scripture verse that James had put on a sticky note, on our computer screen:
Psalm 27:13 I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Yes,all our hope and confidence is in Him. He is abundantly able to do much more than we ask; and exceeding faithful in all of His ways.
