My daughter revealed her heart to me last night in an e-mail. I will share her insights as it reveals much of what we all feel as a family....
This is what has been going through my head. I finally just sat down and out it came. Hopefully it makes sense.

I will end this with the call to earnestly seek God with all your heart. If you know Him, find Him more; if you don't know Him you better. Don't live your life for you, but offer it as a living sacrifice holy and pleasing to the God who created you. The Mighty Father of all wants all the peoples of this world to seek Him and He will reveal Himself!!! He wants to show you Himself, but the question is "Do you want to see Him?"
I write this so that all who read it will know that I am a follower of the Everlasting God and Father of my Lord, Jesus Christ!Even though I don't know much in the whole scheme of things, I do know that God is the only reason to live, anything else would be meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and pray to me and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back from captivity."
Jeremiah 29: 11-14a
"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-- think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me-- put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
