A Beautiful Testimony

"And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love."

1 Corinthians 13:13

Last Thursday we went and had a bunch of family pictures taken by a lady from church. They all turned out to be ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! This is just one of the many, and it inspired me to share how blessed us four girls are to have the amazing parents God gave us.

They have been married now for almost 19 years! When they were married neither one of them were Christians, but God was working on each of them separately (without the other knowing.) Without going into all of that... they soon began going to church (the same church I grew up in and attended all my life before we moved here) and were both baptized on October 23, 1991. Therefore, God was gracious enough to have my sisters and I raised in a true Christian home! I praise His name for that! We are all very fortunate, and we know it. His continual provision for our family has never failed, and it never will!

Anyway, all that being said, our Mom and Dad are two of the most special people in our lives, and we appreciate them so much! The two most important things they have taught us are that we must love the Lord our God with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength, to obey his commandments, and secondly, to love one another.

They are both wonderful testimonies of showing and sharing that love, and I'm so thankful that the Lord has bestowed such a grace upon our family.

Thank you, Mom and Dad! We love you!

36"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" 37Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
Matthew 22:36-40

I am grateful first, for God's hand on your family. Second, for your parents example and third that you recognize the blessing God has given you and your sisters. Thank You, Lord! Ms. Susan
