My Three Year Old

Happy Birthday Rae Rae lovey.

You are so precious to me, your daddy, and your sisters.

Your laughter is as big as life.

I have enough stories in just these three short years to fill up an entire lifetime.

Like the time we wiped your hiney a few days ago and there was a rooster feather in your crack. We are constantly thanking the Lord for the reminder to laugh through you.

Our house is quiet when you are sleeping and animated when you awake.

The first moments of your day are spent running.

Thankfulness is constantly echoed in your scratchy, raspy, two year old voice. Except you say,”Thank Em.”

The free spirit the Lord has given you I pray is one day tamed by God alone and used for His glory. The things He will do through you and the stories you will one day tell…. makes this mama very scared to even think about.

You see no boundaries.

“Slow down lovey,” are the words I most frequently speak to you. But, one day I pray that you run full speed right into the arms of Jesus and go about your faith in reckless abandon.

The possibilities are endless, sweet girl, once the Lord gets a hold of your soul.

Oh, how I beg and plead for His mercy, favor, and compassion to fall on you and the life that is ahead of you.

We love you so much and are thankful the Lord has chosen us (and thought we had enough energy) to parent you.


Momma, Daddy, and the sisters
