There is so much to say….I am so grateful.
Last night I volunteered with Jess and Deb, two amazing friends, at the Dare to Be concert at Crossroads Church in Vancouver, WA. I sat and worshiped with a room full of women and felt the love of Christ with every note that was sung by Natalie Grant and with a beautiful message from Charlotte Gambill. At the end of the show they honored a woman that they feel has shown incredible faith through unimaginable circumstances…that woman was me. I had no idea it was going to happen.
God has shown me so much love and so much grace. He has held me, just as He promises He will, through a beautiful life before Anna and Abigail entered Heaven and is continuing to do so through the heartache of their absence.
Last night they asked for people to donate to the Anna and Abby’s Yard Fund and over $6,000 was raised. I am in awe and completely overwhelmed by the kindness of so many women I don’t even know.
Completely overwhelmed ~ I’ve been in tears all morning.
I trust God, I lean in and He holds me, He lifts me up when I am on my knees and when I feel I cannot stand and He protects me when I am in the depths of my sorrow. He is caring for my children until we are together again ~ Anna and Abby are in His presence. He is holding all of us.
God is Love and last night this Love was shining bright in a room full of beautiful woman and for that I am happy and so grateful.
This is my favorite song by Natalie Grant ~ it speaks to every part of my soul.
