There’s a little girl who is very sweet and thoughtful. In fact, there have been several older Christian ladies who have offered to take her off our hands on a permanent basis. Her name is Deserae Cobb, and she’s our youngest daughter.
One day, a few weeks ago, she handed me a piece of paper that just absolutely floored me. On it were some words that she had written out. Here are those words:
God knows the difference between right and wrong,
We should live for Him, though our lives are long,
We’ve suffered here for many years,
Though Jesus went through more than tears,
They whipped Him and beat Him until He died,
Then they shoved a spear through His side,
But now He’s up on God’s right side,
Up in heaven so fair and bright,
Trust and obey, we can go too,
Lord I will live my life for you.
