Treasure our gifts

Location: Pine Prairie LA USA

By: Kim J.

I was told I was nearly 5 months pregnant with my third daughter at a very difficult time in my marriage. In my eighth and nineth month of the pregnancy, I had a unique dream once in each month. A very beautiful lady, an angel in my eyes, came to me in my dreams with a message that my Grandma Emily had sent me my daughter as a gift from her. My Grandma went home to our Lord 8 years earlier.

It was the most wonderful message that I could've received at that moment in my life. Not to mention that after my baby girl, Jamie, was born, I had the dream once again. I knew that God was sending me a wonderful gift and blessing at the most difficult time of my time life. I treasure all my gifts from God and thank Him for sending them to me.

Irenaeus of Lyon wrote these words - The glory of God gives life; those who see God receive life. For this reason, God-who cannot be grasped, comprehended, or seen-allows Himself to be seen, comprehended, and grasped by men, that He may give life to those who see and receive Him. It is impossible to live without life, and the actualization of life comes from participation in God, while participation in God is to see God and enjoy His goodness.
