Dear Family —

Some of God’s finest blessings are given to us for just a short time, just to remind us of how much God loves us; then, we must give the blessing back to Him for His care and keeping. Don’t let your hearts be troubled: little Maddy is safe and secure and satisfied, warmly cradled in the arms of our Lord Jesus.

May God’s peace and blessings be yours during this most tender season; and, may He give you many lovely memories of the joyful moments that you shared with Maddy, so that you may always have roses in December.

Ever hoping . . .

Always in Jesus,

Cousin Maryann
