Dear Sam and Jill:
So good to hear from you and to see the work the Lord is doing. A year ago, and I remember the day, I thought we were going to lose Sam. Not so, the Lord is good.
Oh how hard a year it has been,
but this is where the real stuff of faith comes in...
and by your love your lives have proven,
your faithfulness to one another and your trust in Him.
Certainly not an easy path to follow
And the prognosis often times hard to swallow
The 'why?' is not something you may know
But of His faithfulness you must never let go
For you are created in Christ Jesus, to bear His image and likeness
As it was before, your lives continue to be His witness
These good works, created in advance by God for you undiminished
Speak volumes of the now not yet - while we wait for it to be finished
Jesus became a servant to the Jews to show God's truthfulness
To confirm to the Patriarch's the sureness of His promise
And to us Gentiles that we might praise God for His mercy
Now to you, He will keep His promise, this you shall see.
So glad for all the progress made, the Lord is not done with you yet. I hope I will have the privelege of coming and visiting some time soon.
