Sunday Serenity - Sweet Sixteen

My sweet daughter,

16 years ago today,
something wonderful happened.


I love you, Miss A!

You are: 
happy memories,
joyful moments,

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


  1. Happy Birthday to your daughter!!!!!

  2. Happy Birthday to your Sweetie!
    The time goes by sooo fast!

  3. Now God is really tellin me something! Your's is the second post I just read with a newborn in the first picture. Ha! I can't wait and your picture makes me even more excited. Happy birthday to your sweet daughter!

  4. How sweet!! I'll bet she just loves having that photo on the net! :)

    In response:

    Thank you for your thoughts. I DID ask!

    You know, the bait was tailor made for us. I've been dealing with a woman from S Africa here lately. My family who are missionaries heading to (another country) just left our home. I have a friend who is a missionary to (another country) and is coming back soon., it is not unusual for us to be communitcating with people from other countries!

    The home that we are in now was a "too good to be true" deal that God totally worked out FROM CL!

    There were photos of the house and a map to it so we went and looked at it! Through God's grace, we only fell for the scam for about an hour. Others have given thousands of dollars already.

    We got into this house by a miracle of God and fully expect another one! If that hadn't been a scam, it would have been a miracle!

    Waiting.... expecting... God will move!


  5. Happy sweet 16 to Miss A!! Hope you all had a fun day!

  6. Happy Sweet 16th Birthday to your daughter! They sure do grow up waaay too fast! My only daughter is now 43 years old, and it seems like she was just sixteen years old not so very long ago! Time does have a way of zooming by, that's for sure!


  7. Time does go by too fast! Tell her we said Happy Birthday and wish her a very special day :)

  8. Aw, Happy Birthday to a precious baby now grown into a young lady!

    I love the verse applied, too. That's the beauty that I hope for my girls too.
