I want to give the perfect gift to you, but I only know of one source! The benefits are immeasurable, though. I know you’ll think so too if you accept the package. The gift Provides Truth; Gives Patience; Believes in you; Hopes; Endures through Every Situation; Accepts Everyone; Never Fails; Is Fearless; Unifies; Imparts Peace; Is Unending; Brings Joy; Is Compassionate; Is Self-sacrificing; Nurtures; Is Inseparable; Gives Strength; Is Pure & Purifies; Provides Freedom; Restores Trust; and Comforts.
The gift is Perfect Love, the source is Jesus Christ.
Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love. 1 John 4:18
Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Ephesians 3:17-19

Amen, Kimberly! And thanx for the email you sent. Unfortunately, I inadvertently deleted it before I could respond. I have what is referred to as “chemo-brain.” My short-term memory is kind of suspect and I forget to do things once in awhile. It’s actually kind of funny! Thank you for your prayers. You would be amazed at how much they have helped! The Lord has had mercy on me for sure.
Diane – Good to hear from you! Don’t worry about not responding… at least you have an excuse that is plausible!! Where does that leave the rest of us?! 🙂 I have deleted emails I had every intention of answering before from extended family members whom I normally don’t correspond with. (It is embarrassing when you have to wait for them to contact you again, because they aren’t in your contacts.) You are on my daily list of prayers that I keep at my desk. You are in God’s hands! Be encouraged and strengthened in Jesus’ name!
Shhh … don’t tell anyone but chemo brain is a communicable condition. My husband person is now exhibiting symptoms. haha
Steve and I both appreciate your prayers, Kimberly. He is dealing with just as much (if not more) than I am. That said, it’s absolutely amazing how much the Lord is teaching us at the same time. How does anyone get through this life without the Lord?
Haha! Is it contagious by association? Well, they say laughter is contagious also, so I hope that you are sharing plenty of that as well.
I don’t know how people live without God, but apparently many do. I prefer not to find out!! You are Both in our prayers dear girl!
