We are very excited about tomorrow and are very hopeful that the day will be a success! What would make it a success? If people are reminded of the purity of love, of the wonder of a child's smile, and of the value of community support, it will be a success. To those participating from a distance, if I could give each of you a hug and a thank you that comes from the very depths I would in a heartbeat. We cannot say thank you enough.
My greatest fear for the day is that we will not be able to adequately convey how thankful and amazed we are at the outpouring of support for this event and our family, or how thankful we are for their involvement. How do we possibly put that into words?!
A verse read Sunday gives me renewed strength this week as we have opened up Pandora's box again... "You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. ... Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy." John 16: 20, 22 I am so grateful for the joy we experience in spite of the grief, and was reminded on the weekend that we do get to see Drew again, and will see his and our keeper too. That is a source of joy for me! And nothing can change that, no stressor, no distraction, no person, nothing at all! A good friend said, "Perhaps Drew is praying for you." What a thought.
Please pray for the success of this Day for Drew.
