In every letter, I wanted to bring out the truths we know about our God:
Here’s what I wrote:
This is where we throw some confetti.
In every letter I added some special stickers. We still love stickers even when we’re grownups, don’t we? I know I do. The weeks six and twelve letters I filled with pink confetti. I hope that didn’t make too big a mess in the chemo treatment room. In one of the letters I placed a small Christmas ornament. Her treatments will be finished around Christmas, so I thought this would be a little glimmer of hope. (For once I was thankful that Hobby Lobby puts their Christmas décor out in the middle of summer!)
I wanted every one of these letters to be filled with hope. Like I wrote at the beginning, I wanted her to be reminded that she is not alone, and I wanted my letters to direct her gaze to God. That’s really all we can do sometimes in this life isn’t it? Gaze on God. Meditate on His Word. Pray. Talk to Him. Listen to His still small voice and remember that even with the number of hairs on my head changing daily (mine are and I’m not even undergoing chemo treatments) He knows the number. We are never forgotten, never alone, and we are valuable to Him!
“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Luke 12:6-7
