John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

The verse above is my confirmation verse.
At the time it was given to me, I suppose my pastor hoped it would be a source of comfort in the years following the confirmation of my faith.
I'm sure he hoped I would revisit this verse,
hoped I would treasure it,
maybe even cling to it.

If he had those hopes
he can rest assured.

I'm clinging.

The right words are hard to find right now. As Amelia's birthday gets closer please know we will be praying even harder for your peace and comfort.

Love you!

Amelia, Melissa, Tim and Noah...
I'm not finding the right words right now...but I want you all to know it's the love in people's hearts, expressed however eloquently or awkwardly, that brings us comfort...you are loved beyond words. Praying for peace in your hearts during these days. Your Sister in Christ...Joan
