Today she turns 17…

Today she turns 17 years-old. I still remember the day she was born and it’s hard to believe that cold January day was an entire 17 years ago. Lydia, 7th born of 14, the only child with beautiful hazel eyes, creates the most beautiful jewelry, baker of delicious oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies, and the party planner in our family… oh! And she makes a pretty delicious cappuccino! :) I am blessed to have her as my sister. I am not 100% certain what her future holds but I know Who holds her future and whatever He has in store, it promises to be blessed!

Happiest of birthdays to you, Lydia! Praying this year is filled full of blessings for you. :)

“May He grant you according to your heart’s desire,And fulfill all your purpose.”
Psalm 20:4

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. Happy birthday to the 2nd best mocha-maker and most tolerant little sister ever!! Thank you for laughing even – or especially – when my humor isn’t very humorous.

    1. I am so thankful you are encouraged by my posts, Christina! I give God all the glory for any good that is posted on this blog. :)

  2. Happy VERY LATE Birthday to you, Lydia! Ridiculously late.

    How do I get so far behind on reading your blog, Rachel? What is up with that anyway?

    Oh well…it’s making for a delightful morning.

      1. No, no! Not possible! Actually…I think it’s because I don’t get email updates for this blog. So much easier for me to follow when updates show up in my inbox. Lazy, lazy Sage. *shakes head*
