Happy Birthday to you









Ten years ago a special young lady was born into our family. She was literally an answer to prayer. After our first miscarriage in Nov. of 1998 we started to pray for God to give us another baby. The Lord knew what He was doing when He blessed us with our second daughter.

For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him: -1 Samuel 1:27

Although usually the first-born is a natural leader, in our case, our 2nd born is. She has a strong personality that has all of her brothers and sisters following her; even the eldest at times.

She also displays character qualities such as initiative, diligence, boldness, decisiveness, determination, enthusiasm, forgiveness, generosity, hospitality, persuasiveness, and resourcefulness. Of course, she is a work in progress, but aren't we all?

That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace: - Psalm 144:12

God has given her quite an intelligence. She is a voracious reader. When I don't see her immediately. I can usually find her tucked away somewhere with a book. She does her schoolwork easily and once I've explained something to her (usually just once), she is able to go with it. Reading comprehension is a piece of cake to her.

A few more facts about her:
She's left-handed.
She has blue eyes and blond hair.
She looks like me (except for the eyes; mine are green) In fact, my mom had baby pictures of us both on her wall and you couldn't tell who was who! :)
She prefers cantaloupe over watermelon.
She's a good cook (she makes great banana bread).
She writes good stories.
She likes ducks, swans, and geese.
Her favorite color is yellow.
Her favorite drink is Dr Pepper! (see? just like me!)
She wants to run an orphanage in Africa when she grows up.

Overall, she is a delightful daughter. We feel very blessed to have her in our family.


Until next time...

Jen,

Happy birthday to your little sweetheart. Those curls are absolutely darling!

I wanted to be sure you saw the award I posted on 9-20. Since I was away I couldn't notify you as I normally would.

Happy Day!

Happy Birthday (okay, sorry I'm late, but since you're celebrating again on Sunday, I guess I'm okay, right?) :o) I remember when you told us you had had another little girl, too -- so happy the Lord blessed you with her. What a sweetie! :o)
