While at an Emmaus weekend experience March 2011 I received this cross as a pillow gift. It says “answered prayer cross” I sent it to my sister Nancy, for her birthday. She is turning 45 this year. While a birthday is a happy event it also makers a moment in time. A moment, that I think of her and the many years she has been dealing a eating disorder,anorexia.
I pray God will give her peace and strength to include family in her recovery. Even if recovery is as small as the mustard seed on the back of this cross. The Lord knows her heart, and he loves her,his love has never left her. He knew her and loved her before she was even born.
I pray that she will know how much I love her and miss her.
I pray; If I have ever done anything or said anything to keep her from receiving the gifts of the Lord, I pray she will forgive me. I pray that our relationship will be stronger. A relationship shared by sisters is a bond that can never be broken, and only strengthened by God’s grace and unending love for his children.
Happy Birthday Sister
God be with you,
