Eric shared a verse with me tonight. It pretty much sums up our year…
2 Corinthians 4:16-18: So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
Eric said at Thanksgiving that he was thankful for this year. It is not what we would have chosen for Anne or for our family, but we’ve seen God deepen our dependence upon and love for Him through this ‘light and momentary affliction.’
We are grateful for God working out His purposes through us and for the love and prayer you all have given to us.
Here’s to a joy-filled 2011!
Love, Kathryn (for all the Jacksons)
