Fifteen Candles

Fifteen years ago, on February 24th at precisely 11:24 am, the Lord saw fit to bless our family with a beautiful, healthy baby girl. She weighed 8 pounds, 8 ounces and she captured my heart immediately. She has brought me so much joy (and some anguish, of course) and my life has been so much the richer because of her. I thank the Lord every day for the joy and privilege of being her mom. I love you Kate!

Through the years...

Happy Birthday Kate!

My prayers for this precious blessing are that the Lord would continue to grow her spiritually, that He would always be first in her life, that He would help her to love Him above all else, that He would continue to grant her a servant's heart, that she would walk worthy of the calling of the Lord Jesus, that He would give her a grateful heart, and that in all things she would bring glory and honor to His holy name.

  1. How wonderful! All you have to do is blink, and suddenly they're all grown up. How precious a gift.
