My sweet daughter,
16 years ago today,
something wonderful happened.
I love you, Miss A!
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment,
such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.
Instead, it should be that of your inner self,
the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit,
which is of great worth in God's sight.
For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their
hope in God
used to make themselves beautiful.
I Peter 3: 3-4
