A Christmas Blessing

It came in the mail today.
I recognized his left-handed scrawl on the envelope right away.


Tears of joy flowed when I read the words he scribbled...


Here's the translation if you're having trouble making it out:

Thank you guys so much for never giving up on me and believing in me 
that one day I would find Christ in me. I'm so grateful to have such great parents. 
I love you Mom & Dad very much...Merry Christmas!
Love, Aaron
~
Best. Christmas. Present. Ever.

God is good.

God, your God, will restore everything you lost; he'll have compassion on you;
he'll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered.
Deuteronomy 30:3 (The Message)

Wishing you all a JOY-filled Christmas!

Much love,

    1. Let me just say that we should never give up on our kids. We certainly have made mistakes through the years raising our boys...it's not what we have done, but what God is doing :)

    The Lord is faithful, and He is in the business of restoration. His grace, His love and His mercy is abundant and above all that we could even ask.
    Your heart must be overflowing with the joy of the Lord right now, bless your dear heart, my friend.

It brought tears to my eyes as I thought of the joy his message was giving to his mom and day, and how that was also filling his heart with love and strength to continue his journey of healing.
