Life

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
John 10:10

God has blessed Emily with abundant life and boundless energy! He surely knew what He was doing when He knit her together in my womb! The doctors and nurses knew from the very first day that she is a fighter, and she has proved over and over again that cancer can’t keep her down.  She amazes everyone with her spunk and spirit. She truly is a miracle.

Last week she attended a Play Camp while I attended a conference, and at the end her class performed a couple of songs they learned. The video below is about 7 minutes long -if you don’t have the time to watch the whole thing, just know that she never stopped bouncing 😀

This week she is attending VBS (Vacation Bible School) with her siblings at the church I grew up in. Her teacher last night, who was one of my Sunday School teachers years ago, was overwhelmed with her energy and life! Tonight she had the honor of carrying the Bible during the Opening Ceremony, and she was So. Excited! She is truly blessing the people around her who have spent the past 2 1/2 years praying for her.

I am just so thankful for the spirit of joy that God has blessed her with. No matter what her life holds, I know He is with her, caring for her and loving her.
