Happy 17th!

My only daughter.  My first born.  The one who made me a mother.  Happy birthday, my sweetheart.

I'm so proud of the woman of God you are  and are becoming.  The joy in your heart that shines through your eyes that you can't help but share with others.  The encouragement you freely give.  The way you search for God and want to know Him.  Your kindness and generosity.  Your helpful spirit.  Your hard work and dedication.  Your strong-willed determination. 

You teach me so much about what it means to give of yourself to others without thinking of the sacrifice.  About what it means to be a good friend.  About discernment and listening to God's voice--being sensitive to what He's saying to you.  

Your smiling face brightens our every day! 

We love you more than words can express!

My daughter, I pray that you will always remember to:

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6)

Happy 17th Birthday, Tera!!!!
