My prayer for you this year has been two fold. Every day we would pray Isaiah 54:13 over you in the car. "All your sons will be taught by the Lord and great will be your children's peace." Knowing that you struggle with learning and anxiousness about things made this scripture so personal to our family. We knew that if the Lord could be your teacher then you WOULD understand. We also knew that if He would be your peace then you would not feel anxious.
My other prayer has been that you would be brave. The wonderful thing about this prayer was that every time you tried something new, that scared you at first, you would recognize that God was answering prayer in your life because you would be brave and try it anyway! I am so encouraged that you are seeing the hand of God in your life and I am so thankful that He is beginning to reveal Himself to you!
Though this year has not been a breeze, your teachers have hung in there with you! You sometimes baffle us with behaviors that we don't understand, but you woke up the next day ready to go, and try, and learn again! And your teachers have done the same!
He is already preparing the way in first grade, sweet girl! You do not realize all that He has orchestrated so that you might remain in His house to learn. You have become my Samuel. I dedicated you to the Lord when you were 9 months old and I can not take you back!
1 Samuel 1:27 "I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. So now, I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord."
I love you Caroline! There are not words to tell you how I really feel. This road has been hard, but I would walk it 100 times over with and for you.
I am praying for you my sweet, sweet girl. Bless the Lord! Bless His matchless and amazing name! He is worthy!
