"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

Happy 13th birthday to our teenager!!!!

Yes, friends. Amanda is 13 today! It's almost hard to believe. It seems like it was just yesterday that I delivered into the world, through our Lord's grace, a beautiful 8 lb., 19" baby girl. A little girl who has given us more joy and filled our hearts with more pride than we could have ever imagined. That precious baby girl is 13 today and she has developed into a beautiful, smart, witty, funny, loving, young lady. We celebrated by going to her Aunt Ily and Uncle Herbie's house, had her favorite meal, pizza, and cut a cake.

Amanda, words can't express how much we love you. We thank God every day for the gift of you and are completely and totally blessed to call you our daughter. May God always fill your heart with his grace, peace, humbleness, humility and love for those around you.

Here are some pictures of our small celebration. And for those of you that have not seen the video that I did of Amanda early last year, click here. :)
