I am reminded often just how much my church means to me. You all have accepted us blemishes and all. We do not need to put on a show of holiness. You have loved on us and you loved on our daughter- even when she needs to be peeled off the walls. Matthew and I both have grown more in faith over the past nearly two years than we have at any other time. We look forward to every Sunday morning when we get to worship with you all.
It is easier to be so far away from home with the friendships we have formed. You are like a second family to us and in many ways even better than my own born family.
Love you guys! *sniff*
