We love you, precious Marta. May your days be blessed, your heart be content, and may you always be busy at work in the service of Our Dear Lord as you do whatever He tells you. Jn. 2:5)
We continue to hold as our prayer the same petition that we sent out on announcing your arrival:
It is our prayer, through Marta Agnes Malí's birth, that in and through all joys, celebrations, struggles, daily givings we may each give, serve in love, Jesus and listen to His words to Martha in John 11:1-45 where He says that our suffering "is not an end in death, but is for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it." May we all abandon ourselves to God's will in the little and large moments of our lives, realizing that all, when it has been allowed, is to teach us His love, so that He may be glorified. For, it is all about You, Lord.
Tonight, we celebrated YOU, sweet Marta, with homemade banana splits. We love you so much and cannot imagine our family without your life. Thank you, Lord, for this sweet daughter of Yours.
