♥♥ Happy Birthday DD ♥♥

Dear God,

Thank You for this special day. I remember eight years ago when I received this precious pink bundle from You which I started praying for after having the equally priceless blue bundle which was DS. Funny that just moments after receiving my DS from You, I immediately asked for the next one. You are just too good, Father. You have made it possible after three and a half years, and Your timing was of course perfect. Thank You for blessing me with my DD. She is the most wonderful daughter any Mom could ever have. Today as we celebrate her 8th year, we honor You and give back all our thanks and glory. I continue to pray for my her -- that someday, when we -- DH and I -- have gone back home to You, she will continue to live a life that is pleasing and acceptable to You. And that one day, when she becomes a professional ballerina, she will wow the world and say that all that she has become is because of You, and that every step she dances comes from her heart to Yours.

It always amazes me when I think of Your reasons for creating daughters and blessing us, Moms, with them. Perhaps You were thinking of little helpers for us? Or maybe You wanted Moms to have their own mini-me's? Oh but we have very limited imagination, and our power to reason does not transcend Yours. When DD turned one and we dedicated her to You, am sure You remember, Lord, when we gave away little glass-blown flowers in glass-blown vases? And I tucked-in tiny little scrolls with a pretty poem inside... I want to relive that moment, and include it all down here once again --


God made the world with its towering trees,
Majestic mountains and restless seas,
Then paused and said, "It needs one more thing..."
Someone to laugh, and dance, and sing.
To walk in the woods and gather flowers,
To commune with nature in quiet hours.

So God created little girls,
With laughing eyes and bouncing curls.
With joyful hearts and infectious smiles,
Enchanting ways and feminine wiles.
And when He'd completed the task He'd begun,
He was pleased and proud of the job He'd done.
For the world when seen through a little girl's eyes,
Greatly resembles paradise!

That poem, speaks of how truly wonderful and giving You are, Lord. You've made the world a sweeter place to live in because of little girls and daughters. With that I also want to add, that as my DD grows older, I pray for the Holy Spirit to always guide her, and help her in all of her life's decisions. And may she always walk in your ways, and allow You to always be a step ahead of her. I pray for a godly man to be her husband someday, someone who has Your heart and who will lead her closer to You, and someone who will also be a good father to my future grandchildren. When she was little, and I wore socks on her stubby feet, I would always utter a silent prayer that those two little feet will always walk in Your way. But as years gone by, and as she learned to dress herself up, I also pray that she will always discern the good from the bad, and preserve her purity until You bind her with her future husband.

So may things to pray for, and I know there would not be enough words to complete what my heart feels today. I trust You know what else is needed, Lord. Whatever words I failed to write, or failed to say, whatever thoughts of mine are forgotten and unsaid -- I trust You will take care of the rest. Thank You, Lord. I know You will hold my precious DD in Your hands, and she will always be the apple of Your eyes.

A daughter may outgrow your lap,
but she will never outgrow your heart.
