We are celebrating Libby's Day for some dear friends of ours. Libby was born two year ago (or was it three... time flies. it really does) with Trisomy 13. Normally, these angel kisses (babies born with Trisomy 13) don't last but a day (IF that long) here in this rough world. Libby, however, stayed around to share her kisses with us for right at two weeks. Talk about rough... thinking each day our beloved friends could defy the odds of this disease. God, however, seemed to feel the same way about little Libby that we did... He just didn't want to live without her. Therefore, He welcomed her back home with the angels on November 13th.
God's heart is breaking for each one of us to be back with Him. That is why life is so tough sometimes and this world seems so cruel. (This is just my fun little way of dealing with things, of course.) God wants us to live and experience His creation and yet, He can't stand us to be away from His very presence. Until one day, He calls to us and asks us to spend eternity with Him in His incredible love. Libby answered His call.
If you are reading this, you are beyond the ability of Libby's willingness to answer the call. However, you are able to BE READY to answer God's call with a different kind of willingness. Are you ready? Have you personally asked Jesus to be King of your life? You can do that RIGHT NOW. Just whisper that prayer and ask Him into your heart. Then speak to a friend or pastor who knows Jesus personally and find out more about being ready to answer God's call. You WILL be blessed.
As for Libby's Day... I'd ask that you leave a sweet comment of encouragement here for my friend and her family as they miss Libby and celebrate the memory of their precious angel kiss. Thanks!
