To my friend in the DR......just heard your family's news.
And I hope that you see this.
I'll write, too.
But this is fast.
And hope that you know that if you need someone to talk to.....
I'd love to listen.
I hope I'll see you if you all come.
I miss you.
Miss your words.
All I can say is that our God is strong.
He is good.
He's got good plans for us.
Plans to prosper us and not to harm us.
To give us a hope and a future.
I know your lovely heart for Him.
Oh my friend........
Hugs from me.
I love you,
love your family.
He is strong.
He loves you.
listen to the Lord who created you.
O Israel, the one who formed you says,
“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
When you go through deep waters,
I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.
For I am the Lord, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I gave Egypt as a ransom for your freedom;
I gave Cush and Seba in your place.
Others were given in exchange for you.
I traded their lives for yours
because you are precious to me.
You are honored, and I love you.
(Isaiah 43: 1b-4)
Wish I could be there.
Love you SO much, friend!
