Chandler & Jessica,
First, please forgive me for the forum I used. I just didn’t know what would be the best way to pass along my blessing. Please believe me when I say this is not meant to cause any extra stress.
I wanted both of you to know that I have been praying for this special day for many, many, many months.
What an amazing privilege God has placed into your care. I pray your love for Jessica will grow with each passing day. I hope that in the unsure moments, low energy days and times of life frustrations, that you will take a deep breath, find the calm and soldier on. I pray for you to desire to stay committed and face each challenge boldly. My hope for you is that you will experience many new joys as you build this new family. I pray for your love, wisdom and patience to grow as you seek to meet the needs of these special children God has seen fit to give you. I will continue to be a committed prayer warrior for your new and dear family.
It is important for me to express to you my unending love and care for you. I am thankful God has given you a new opportunity to be loved and cherished. I do pray for you to have peace, comfort and other blessings as you and Chandler journey together. I pray for energy, strength and unwavering commitment as your new family is joined together. I pray for wisdom to be your guide. I hope you will have many moments of lasting joy. I pray you and Chandler will endearingly, patiently and selflessly work through the challenges that will come your way. I want you to know, I committed to pray for your dear family.
Lainey, Kaiden and Ella:
Today is a very special day for the 3 of you. Each of you is very special to me. In time I will be better at communicating that to you. I pray for each of you to show love and care and respect for all in your new family. Seek out ways to be helpful. Be happy for this new opportunity of having committed parents. Trust the parents God is giving you. Help them to know you are glad to have them as your parents. And, know this, I will continue to pray for each of you, often.
I will close with this:
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; 25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed;26 for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. Romans 3:23-26
I love you and I will continue to pray for you.
