I was putting Anne down for a nap the other day, and she asked, “Mama, will you please tell me a story?” Who can resist that?
Once upon a time there was a little girl who was very special in the eyes of God. “Is that me mommy?” Yes, Anne, it’s you. And that little girl could twirl and sing. She used to love singing songs to Jesus. “Was that me mommy?” Yes, Anne. That was you.
But one day, that little girl was in a horrible accident and had to go to the hospital. She almost died, but God sent angels to protect her, and He saved her from dying. She was asleep a long time, but when she woke up, she couldn’t move or speak. She couldn’t even move her eyes. “I couldn’t move anything, mommy.”
But slowly, God began to heal her. First, she started to speak, and then she could move her eyes, and then her arm and then her legs, and God is still helping her to get better… because He has good plans for her; plans to give her a – “future and a hope. He is going to give me a future and a hope. And he is helping me to get better and better – even today.”
That’s right, Anne. You are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which He has prepared in advance for you to do.
…I love you Anne. “I love you poo-poo, Mommy.” Night-Night, silly girl. “Night-Night.”
There is so much to love about our new Anne!!
