May the mighty grace of our beloved risen Christ be with you and give new life and force to your every endeavor. An Easter blessing from your mother in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit! Amen!
How are you my son? I wish I could read and answer and hear you say you're just fine. Even if I don't, I know that you are in God's hands and have always been. I don't worry, just miss you as I know you have missed us.
Jesus took his mother physically to heaven in the Assumption remember. So ties must be important, don't you think?
We are all well. I pray for you all the time and of course you know your Grandma does too. Grandma and Grandpa are fine not in the best of health, but by the grace of God doing good. Grandpa McDade passed away a year ago January. Your brothers are fine. Paul is no longer in Michigan, neither are Sean and Stephanie.
Daddy and I are living in Germany again in Schweinfurt in Bavaria. We've been here for two years. The job Daddy has is pretty difficult so we probably won't extend.
If you want to visit at any time just e-mail me and we will send you a ticket.
God bless you Joe and don't worry about us. Not for a moment have I doubted that you are doing God's will. I am behind you 100%. God is leading you; pay attention to your heart. He says "the truth is written in your heart" I can't tell where in scripture that is written, but we both know those words are truth.
May every angel and saint in heaven and on earth and our holy mother Mary and our beloved savior Jesus Christ, his Father and the Holy Spirit be with you and make their presence felt in your body and soul like the sweetest nourishment in all of creation. I love you.
