We had our Christmas celebration with our god-daughter and her parents (who are special, dear friends of ours) yesterday. Is it any wonder that I love this precious child so?
Dear sweet Sofia, I know we are not related through blood. I know I am just your godmother. But I have something important to tell you! Very important, and I hope you remember it for the rest of your life.
You are a child of God.
You have been wonderfully and carefully made. Your Father is the creator of joy, and love, and all the beautiful and wonderful things that you love.
Your Father is watching you, loving you, preparing for you. I cannot wait to see the wonderful, wonderful plans he has for you!
And your godmother, your Nana, is here whenever you need her. And, If she wasn’t afraid of being struck by lightning, she would say that she loves you more. But you know what? I’m pretty sure your Nana loves you just as much!
Love, your Nana
