Happy Birthday!

24 years ago, just after noon, (and with much help from doctors), our firstborn came into this world.  We named her Sarah Elinor.  She has grown into a beautiful young woman who loves and serves the Lord, and who brings great joy to us. 

Sarah is a crafter just like me, and excels at knitting, cross stitch, scrapbooking, and many more crafts, including her newest hobby, polymer clay crafting.  You can visit Sarah's Etsy shop here.  She has become a good and patient cook (remember that first - failed - batch of brownies?) and will attempt dishes that require much work, always to our culinary delight.  Sarah serves us in many ways, but especially as she braves the stores once a week to do our grocery shopping.  She is also a cat lover, just like me.

Happy birthday, dear daughter.  May God continue to work in you to conform you to the image of His Son, Jesus, and may you serve Him wholeheartedly all the days of your life.  We love you!

What a beautiful daughter you have Ginny! She sounds like a really lovely person. And I love her name especially Elinor. That is a name you never hear and it is such a pretty old name. Happy birthday Sarah!

By the way, copy away dear friend. I am touched that you like it enough to want to do it that way too.

Hugs from Holland ~
