I used to be a daughter, but when my parents died, I felt like an orphan.
I used to be a sister, but when my sister died, I wasn’t.
I used to be a teacher but when I retired, I’m not.
I used to be a mother, but when our children moved out, I am just a long distance call.
I know this sounds all gloom and doom but it isn’t!
I am finding out who I REALLY am, a daughter of the King! It’s like I went on that program you see on TV and I got a “Leaf”. I am finding that one “leaf” leads to another.
I am here on purpose! Leaf.
My Father has a specific plan for me. Leaf.
I am never alone.Leaf.
I always can share my thoughts, joys, fears, and troubles with my Father. Leaf.
The King, my Father, offered me a gift, salvation. Now a gift is no good until it’s opened. (You won’t know what’s inside.) There is nothing I have done to deserve this gift, nothing I can pay to have it, it is a gift! I just had to “open” it.(accept that I am a sinner and need a Savior) It continues to lead to what seems another gift, and yet another. Joy, that comes from learning whose I am. Peace, that is unexplainable.
Did you know there is a gift for you also? (don’t you just love getting gifts!)
It’s up to you to open it!
