Our precious little one turned 19 months old today! It certainly seems like yesterday when we first brought her home to Singapore, she was only 4.5 months old back then… Oh, how she had grown and still growing, in both stature and maturity in all the developmental areas. Blessed be The Lord for granting her good growth and His faithfulness for watching over us.
Dear Heavenly Father, my gracious Lord, thank You so much for giving us the gift of love through this bundle of joy wrapped up perfectly in the person of our precious little child. Thank You for giving us the countless opportunities to learn from her the many lessons in patience and unconditional love that You want to show us in and through her. It is through these periods of coaching that we see Your patience and unconditional love for us. Oh, what high standards they are, I pray that You will continue to grant us extra measures of grace and strength to be able to attain what You have set for us.
My dear Elizabeth, I pray that you will always see the wondrous works of God, and your mouth be full of praise for Him, giving thanks and glory to the good Lord in and through all things. Each and every day that pass, may you grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, that His law would be your delight and you would meditate on His precepts. I pray that you would grow up to be a woman after God’s own heart, that you would always trust in The Lord, being mindful that He is your ever present help and your shield. May you always take refuge in the Lord and seek Him in all things.
These, I ask sincerely in the name of the precious and holy One, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Blessed 19 mo birthday darling! Daddy and Mommy love you very much! Muacks!
