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!
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!
