“Christine” : “follower of Christ; anointed”

Oh, how I praise the Lord for the true living out and testimony of your name! Just recently while I was watching you, I had to stop and stand in awe of God’s love and blessings in my life and in the life of our family. Just over a year ago, you entered our everyday lives and became a forever member of our family. I look back on that day with so much praise, love and gratefulness…and a few tears. While heading home on that late night bringing you back from the village, I looked up at the stars and just prayed. Prayed that through God’s mercy I would somehow be a blessing to you, but sweet girl, you have been more of a blessing to me. I remember the day you asked Christ to come into your life this year, and the joy and happiness that filled you made me stand again in awe of Christ’s love for us and the miracles that He works in and through our lives. I continue to look forward to all that God is going to do in and through your precious life as you follow and serve Him. 
I love you, beautiful girl.

Matthew 16:24  “Then Jesus said to His disciples, 
‘If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.’”

I believe that this will be your life, precious girl. As you continue to seek Christ, live your life for Him and follow Him with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength. I only pray that I will be here to watch you grow and experience the Lord in new and deeper ways the more you grow and walk in Him. I can only pray that God will give me the grace, blessing, and privilege of continuing to pour into your heart and life, and lead you to the Savior each and every day. I love you. more than you’ll ever know.
