The Wedding Gift

Posted by Lori Merrill on 04/14/2016

 

I opened the finely woven little chiffon bag with satin ties to see a delicate gold bracelet.  A wedding gift from my daughter to me. When I read the engraved words I teared up quickly. Reading “All I am I owe to you” meant the world to me. The words engraved pierced my heart. To receive a gift like this with this sentiment was the sweetest gesture.

Just as quickly as I read them, I knew it was not me who deserved those words, though I would never want them taken back.

“All I am I owe to You” are the words that I thought to my Heavenly Father after I read the words from my daughter. Those words adequately express what I believe. They are words that I know couldn’t be said about me if it weren’t for the Lord’s work in my life. I know who I was before and what I was before I became His child. I know that it is because of the work of my Lord, who sent His Son Jesus, to die for my sins that I can receive those words from my daughter…and that I can speak those words to Him.

A precious gift from her to me, but only because of His gift to me.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son; that whoever believes in Him will have everlasting life. John 3:16

If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. Romans 10:9-1 

In His Love,

Lori
