7 Years of Precious Life

20111020-180437.jpg

My girl ~ my sweet daughter ~ turned 7 yesterday.

(Our Internet has been out all week, so I decided to go ahead and write this from my iPhone. I hope it turns out alright.)

Anyone else get all emotional around birthdays?

I really can’t help it. And i’m not really talking about crying emotional – but thoughtful, introspective, emotional. I think about their birth-day. Think about the past years we’ve spent with them during their life. Think about how amazing the gift of life is, and how unbelievably thankful I am to God for blessing us with this child, and the years He’s given her thus far. I think about all she’s been through, and what we’ve been through together, and how God has been faithful through it all. I think about her future, and what God might have planned for her life.

I think about these things and so much more….and my heart overflows with joy and thankfulness to my kind God – who has bkessed me far beyond anything I deserve.

Happy 7th birthday to our precious daughter!

  1. I get all emotional, too! It’s such a special time of reflection…We love Zoe girl and are also so blessed to have her in our lives 🙂

  2. I’m with you on getting emotional! What a beautiful post– it brought tears to my eyes, because our children are such precious gifts. When we really stop to think about it, it is awesome and amazing, just as you said, that the Lord would give us such precious, miraculous gifts!

    May your daughter be blessed with many more years of love, health and happiness!!!!

    Many blessings,
    Lisa

  3. okay….you guys have me crying toooo over here….Zoe is precious to me tooo and I thank the Lord daily for giving me such a wonderful granddaughter!! I am richly blessed!! Love you Zoe!! Nana

  4. Yep, definitely emotional over the kiddos’ birthdays. In fact, one of my boys has his 12th birthday coming up on Sunday. And my other son will be 10 next weekend. This time of year is a boatload of emotion for me! Whenever we sing happy birthday, it always hits me that this is MY child given to me by our gracious God! I’m his mother, and it brings me great joy…the greatest joy I’ll likely ever know. Happy birthday to your girl!
