Ya know what else I love? I love that Avelyn is no longer hurting. I love that she is able to move & dance with freedom - not attached by a wire or limited by intense & heavy swelling weighing her down. I love that she is able to open her eyes with ease; I wish she was opening them to see me, her mommy, but instead she is seeing something much, much more beautiful. Heaven. Jesus. Her heavenly Father. A creation beyond words, beyond what our imaginations are able to dream. A place where I will join her one day.
I hesitated to share this video. In some ways it's hard to watch, but it also gives me peace. Yesterday as we celebrated Easter and I read so many fb posts, I was reminded how Jesus hurt. How Jesus was nailed to the cross, taking your sins & my sins with Him.--Dying, and taking our sins with Him. Thankfully the story didn't end there though, with our sins nailed to the cross with Jesus. Instead, Jesus left our sins there and rose so that we, me, you, my daughter could take His gift, His grace, for eternal life, in heaven. With Him. We were given freedom from pain & burdens & tears & death, because of His grace.
We are doing a series on Monday nights @ church right now called The Joshua Project. It is a series using scientific evidence to prove that God's creation is real. It shows that you have to have more faith to believe in evolution than in creation because there simply isn't enough science to prove evolution. And that aside, if evolution were true, where's the hope?--My peace re: my daughter would be non-existent. Praise the Lord that HIS creation is real. That it's not only proven scientifically, but that because there is God, there is a "why" behind us. Not simply for us just to exist, but because our God has a purpose for us, a reason for us being here. And also a hope and a peace for a life beyond this life...an everlasting life for those of us who confess our faith in Him. Please do this friends. Accept His grace, His hope, His peace - by accepting Him. Love & hugs all. Goodnight.
