Because I couldn't post it right on my iPad and don't have a computer handy. Hers deserve their own post anyway.
A few weeks before James got sick, our Sunday school class talked about the parable of the paralyzed man. Do you all remember the paralyzed man whose friends lifted the man through the roof in order to see jesus? Mark 2 says that when Jesus saw their faith, meaning that of the paralytics friends, he was healed.
Dear friends, you have truly been the ones to lift and sustain us during this time. Our Sunday school class, foundations, has been a stunning example of the body of Christ. I can't tell you how you have not only fulfilled every material need for us, but you have provided spiritual support in ways that we couldn't even have asked for.
Because if you, we have been able to raise our eyes to Christ, but-only because you are holding us up.
Words cannot express our thanks and love for you. We are so grateful for every one of our prayers, thoughts, phone calls, emails, Facebook messages, blog comments, and visits.
Thank you for showing us how to truly love- it is through you that we have become better parents and show christs love to James.
