Happy Birthday Amy (2015)

IMG_4960Dear Amy,

I was just reading through the letter I wrote you last year. At the time we were only three weeks into a terribly difficult situation at the church and to be honest everything seemed pretty dark. Last year I wrote, “I know that the storm clouds have been very dark recently, but I think that even now we are beginning to see God’s special blessings…” I believe that the rest of 2014 all the way up to the present moment has been a season of God’s special blessing on us and our family. Here are 4 reasons why I believe that’s true:

1) Last year we not only saw Micah come to faith in Christ, but Cody walked downstairs one day and announced to us that he had a new heart J. God has specially blessed us with these precious children and day by day we are seeing them grow in Christ and trust in Christ.

2) It’s been nearly a year since we moved back into our home and every day I walk home from the office to you and the boys I am reminded of what a special blessing it is to love here. Last year we were able to add a pool and a trampoline along with all of the replacement furniture, etc. from the fire. God has specially blessed us with a beautiful house to live in, but you have been the instrument He has used to make this house a home.

3) This has been a special year of blessing at the church as well. We’ve seen many new people join our church and our home group has really begun to come together in a uniquely special way. While the first few months of 2014 were filled with terrific losses of friendships, I believe that the Lord has doubly blessed us this last year with great friends and a uniquely gracious church.

4) Amy, every day I am reminded of God’s marvelous grace in my life when I wake up next to you. You are my soul-mate, my great love and my joy. Every day with you is a special blessing from the Lord.

Toda we get to celebrate another one of your birthdays, but even more than that we get to celebrate another year of God’s special blessing on our marriage, our family and our ministry together.

I love you with all of my heart,

Andrew Buell
