Happy Birthday!!!! || + 26 Selfies!!!

Hello-hello!!!!!  It’s one of THE most exciting days of the year!!!!!!  Can anyone guess?!?!?!?!?!!!! It’s National Corn Fritter Day, of course!!

……But it seems like there is something else going on today…. Hmmmm… It’s… at… the…. tip of…. my….. OH YES!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s Rachel’s birthday too!!!!!!!!!!  It’s also the day you come to realize why I (Grace) don’t have a blog of my own.  {You can leave now if you want.}

{Okay, thanks for staying.}  So Rachel is really special, and many of you probably know that already, being the recipient of one of her handmade cards, or random gifts, or an email just to check in.  She always has her eyes and ears open to the needs of others and is ready and willing 98% of the time (no worries, guys, she’s not perfect – just 98%) to do what she can to help!


To spice things up and keep monotony at bay, I like to give each of Rachel’s Birthday posts an informative theme.  This year I thought of doing a picture collage – but I already did that.  Then I thought “how about some random facts about Rachel?” (because we’re all about random facts when it comes to a person of interest) – but I already did that.  Then I though, “HEY!! How about combining the two and posting 26 photo’s of Rachel AND a few bits of informative info from/about her 26 years of life?!” – YES!!!!!!!!!!  So enjoy a few pictures from Rachel’s life, and don’t be a blog stalker – PLEASE LEAVE A “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” IN THE COMMENTS BELOW BEFORE LEAVING!!!! ;) ;)


{And yes, I do know that these aren’t technical selfies… just needed a clever title to draw you in!}

“Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?’ …… And the King shall answer and say unto them, ‘Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.'” Matthew 25:37,40

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
