The Birthday Girl

posted in Uncategorized |

dsc00046.JPGToday is the birthday of my oldest daughter, who turned four today. Here she is in a picture doing her most favourite thing - reading. This is a new book that she got in the mail from her Nana and Grandad in New Zealand.

In the last year she has grown up so much, it’s hard to believe it. She is constantly making up stories and singing songs; she loves to praise the Lord with singing and dancing - she often asks “Does Jesus like it when we dance and clap?” She ‘reads’ books voraciously and I believe that this next year she will learn to read for real. She has taught herself to write most of the letters of the alphabet, including all the letters of her name. And of course she loves to pretend to be a princess. Many mornings I am told over breakfast that today her name is Cinderella.

She is so silly (which Handsome says comes from me) and we do a lot of laughing and giggling. She is such a great companion and I really enjoy spending time with her one on one. Because she’s older now and doesn’t usually nap in the afternoon, she and I are able to spend a bit more time together just the two of us, after we’ve both had a rest. Sometimes in the evenings we will allow her to stay up later than her siblings and I’ll take her out to the grocery store or to some other place I need to go. She thinks this is really cool because everyone else is already in bed.

This year she started AWANA at church and is memorising scripture every week. I pray over her most nights that she will love the Lord her God with all her heart, mind, soul, and strength. And I think she’s definitely on her way.

Happy Birthday, Precious.
