Happy Birthday dear daughters. Little Enid Hosanna, you are such a gift from God. You bring joy into the hearts of everyone who is around you. You are so cheerful, thankful, and kind. You are the perfect #9 in the Fine bunch! Your position in our family is of utmost importance and I anticipate the future as God unfolds your giftings and directs your life according to His purposes. Charlie is one blessed little boy to have you right above him- I have a feeling you will be very important to one another! Your nana (for whom you were named after) would delight in who you are just as we do. I am thankful that you are sweet reminder to many of us of my mom and her joyful spirit. Your middle name Hosanna- how fitting for you little lady, especially as you were born so near the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. It is a word used to prolaim praise, joy, or adoration! Happy 3rd birthday sweetie pie.
Savannah Dale…I will never forget the overwhelming and overflowing of joy that your daddy and I experienced when you were born. That is why we used the verse:
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
on your birth announcement. You were a good and perfect gift from God. I am SO grateful to God for the beautiful young lady you have grown into. You challenge me, you encourage me, you bless me- you have chosen to make God your 1st priority and it is evident in so many areas of your life. Thank you for all of the beautiful and sacrificial serving and nurturing you have poured out this year onto your family and all those around you- you have been the hands and feet of Christ, honey. You have not just risen up “for such a time as this,” you have counted it a privilege and an honor to lay your life down for so many over the last 7 months. When you communicated this to me several months ago, it fueled me with more “fight” in this battle for Charlie. You have SO many fans my dear…your family adores you. Thank you for being a young lady who desires to lay up treasures in heaven!
Matthew 6:19-21 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
I love you so much Enid Hosanna and Savannah Dale! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
