Two Of My Loves

These two beautiful young women are one of My many miracles given to me by the Lord.Cheryl and Christine.Their story all started with a little sadness to it.  They were left with their father and needed a woman's hand to grow into the wonderful women that they are.  They were such a joy to raise and each gave their own wonderful contribution to our growing family.Cheryl (in Blue) is now My oldest of four daughters,Chrissy(of course in purple) is three years younger. Aren't they beautiful !I did't have any idea when I married Paul 35 years ago how our lives together would end up with His two darling little girls-none of us do,I know.I don't know why I had no hesitations or fear or even questions about being in their lives at their ages of two and five.It felt perfect, and our lives together felt right .They taught Me how to be their Mom.Cheryl ,with darling curly hair,was the quiet one,loved to get lost in her barbies and books.Loved helping me with her three sisters.Chrissy was our little clown,full of silliness and laughter.Now their both wonderful Mothers with full busy lives.They give Me more love than I could have ever dreamed of 35years ago.My life is so full,partly thanks to them.Out of My nine Grandchildren five of them came through Chrissy and Cheryl.I love them with my whole heart-Thank you Lord!

What a blessing! I too married a man 37 years ago, never expecting to raise his 2 kids...but within a year they begged to be with us. What a joy it has been. Thanks for sharing your treasures!

What a beautiful story. x

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
