Summer Birthdays


She turned sixteen. I wondered where the time went. We spent a whole day together just being. There is a part that wants back the days rocking; but a greater part that looks forward to the future - her future. Looking back on the past sixteen years makes me excited to see what God has for her in the years ahead. Happy Birthday, Rachel!

How sweet! I have to say that grown up daughters are delightful! Gathering around with all their fresh perspective and eager hearts, just makes the soul sing! Sixteen is wonderful and it gets better!

Happy Birthday to your Rachel! I feel the same way you do, Martie - miss those baby days, but SO excited to see my babies grow up and see what God will do with and through them!

what a sweet girl you have there! I have loved the transition from little girl/daughter to young woman/friend with my own girls. These next few years will be such a time of joy for you and your dear girl, I am sure. Many blessings to Rachel on her special day♥
