WE CAN REJOICE WHEN WE RUN INTO PROBLEMS AND TRIALS, FOR WE KNOW THEY DEVELOP ENDURANCE, WHICH DEVELOPS STRENGTH IN CHARACTER, WHICH STRENGTHENS OUR CONFIDENT HOPE OF SALVATION. AND THIS HOPE WILL NOT LEAD TO DISAPPOINTMENT, FOR GOD LOVES US DEARLY.- ROMANS 5:3-5
Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you. - Deuteronomy 31:6
I will not leave you as orphans [comfortless, desolate, bereaved, forlorn, helpless]; I will come [back] to you. John 14:18
i'm sorry. i thought i would just leave it at this but i have something else to say.
i love my sister. i love her so much. i prayed to God, asked Him for her. i was nearly 9 years old when she came into my life. i was so happy, because before that, i was lonely. everyone else had siblings and someone to talk to and play with, and i was an only child. the only people i had wear my friends, but i only saw them on sundays and wednesdays at church. so now, joy is 7 years old. i admit, we don't get along as well as we should. it's my fault and it's hers, and we could both probably make a mutual effort to be nicer to each other. but you know how siblings are. and yet, i love her. i don't say it often or express it well, but i do. i do. and what i would do if i were never able to see her again, i don't know. i am afraid to know. and like losing a best friend, no one should have to know. so, keep them close. not just your siblings. keep your parents close. keep everyone you care about close. but don't start when your or their life is threatened, love them everyday. tell them everyday. give them a hug and a kiss. not just because those in connecticut cannot hug or kiss some of their kids anymore, but because you can. so please. please.
-kiss kiss kiss, this is what it means-
