Last June of 2019, I attended Patricia Gabrielle’s first birthday and christening. She is the daughter of my high school friend, Kristelle. I was invited to be her godmother and I am very delighted to be one. Surprisingly, this child responded sweetly to me. She didn’t cry, but willingly come to me. She even rested in my arms! Oh how I love this kid!
And while she was sleeping in my arms, I was reminded of the word “family”. I asked myself if the Lord will give me a family of my own in the future. And prayerfully I whispered under my breath, “I hope.”
This kid quickly became a source of my hope and a reminder that one day, I will have a family of my own. Thank You, Lord, for the life of this child and her mom. They are blessings to me. ❤️
May you bless their whole family, Lord. May you bless the works of her parent’s hands. May you give them good family relationship. May you overflow the fruits of the spirit in them (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control ~Galatians 5:22-23) May you always guide them and protect them. In Jesus name, Amen.
I remember my personal word from the Lord about family
And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families. — Exodus 1:21
June 30. A story of hope. 😍
