”I am anxiously LOOKING for His blessings and EXPECTING His will to be done. What else matters?” ~Jessica Bjokne (my daughter)
If I speak 10,000 more words in my life, in addition to the hundreds of thousands I’ve spoken already, none will matter more than these words Jessica speaks. (Linked here and quoted below in comments.)
Our daughter has led us, through her indescribable pain, to a place of worship and peace… a place of safety… a place I want to always be. Her life, right now, is a sermon as eloquent as all the sermons from the greatest pulpits.
Our Father, draw us closer to you. You are the source of our need, and the only One who can satisfy it. We join with our sister, Your precious daughter, and say “Your will be done.” We know that you hear us; we know that you look on us always with tender eyes of compassion.
