Life as Thank You 39
I am writing thank you notes this year to let people know how much they mean to me. I want you to know that I am so grateful that you are in my life. I remember that special day when you and Stephanie came to me at Phantom Ranch and I had the great privilege of helping you join God’s forever family! And I am so grateful for the opportunity to be able to pour into you those early years of your faith journey.
I am so thankful to God for your physical health and how you leaned in hard to Him during that horrible cancer season of your life. I am so glad we shared that time together; it really cemented a lifelong friendship as we faced hard stuff together from the very start!
I am proud of how you chose to pursue God wholeheartedly even when it wasn’t easy and how you decided so many things for your own spiritual health over the years (mentoring, church, missions, Bible school,etc). I love that about you! I am humbled by your trust and your honesty. Thank you for that same loyalty even when we are separated by the miles and the years.
Thank you for your faithful friendship and prayers on my behalf over the years. Thank you for coming to visit me, for the handmade ceramics and other special items you have made. I loved being part of your wedding and meeting people (spiritual family) that I have “known” without ever having met them before. It is these things that show me you are grateful to have me in your life.
I continue to pray for you and William as you now begin the lifelong journey of parenting together and for your sweet baby. May God always be the center of your life and may his favor rest upon you.
I love you Catie!
