Dear Mother:

I know that you are hurting, overcome with despair and seeped with pain. Your tears cloud a broken heart and a broken woman. In a moment of silence I wonder how much you wish for death. Imagining what lies beyond the world we know, biding time until the hands of God take you home. But human patience wears thin, as does the here and now. I wonder how much more God can ask you to endure, why does he allow the hurt to continue. Does he understand or really even care? Iíve read everything with God is done for a reason, maybe its teaching patience, reliance on him alone or strength of character or even for me to say. All I can do try to understand and pray that he gives you the strength for just another day.

It was your love that carried me through so many years that taught me about the love of Christ that continues to carry me forward. Your example and suffering led me to this moment today. So maybe I can offer you some hope, your love and his love are eternal. Human existence would never have survived with the concept, goodness in this world would have never been revealed. 1 Corinthians 13:8-10 promises one day Godís revelation of the futures will despair. A time will come when no more of that is necessary because the end will have arrived. I am unsure whether the end of time itself, the rapture or a certain time period. Those gifts will no longer be necessary because Christís revelation will have been revealed. The eternal gift of love will always be present. Love itself is sometimes is a dying concept but if you ever forget look to the cross at Calvary and see his face, the greatest reminder of love.

Your loving Daughter

A sweet and loving letter of hope and encouragement to a mother that evidently is suffering through a sickness. Thanks for sharing these intimate and heartfelt thoughts with your FW friends and fellow writers. God Bless.

I can feel the pain, and the hope, in this letter. Very well expressed.

I agree this is a sweet letter. You may want to read it carefully before submission. I found some errors and it caused me to stop and start to get the intent. Good job.
