Laney Rae, you are joy....Category: Laney Rae
Author: 5 Chicks and a Farmer
Happy Birthday my little joy wonder.
Laney Rae, you are 4 today.
How in this world this has happened is beyond me.
Your most favorite thing in the world is to run free. Outside immersed in nature is where you are most comfortable.
I learn so much from watching your uninhibited little self.
You live each moment to the fullest.
Whenever I read Jim Elliot's quote,"Wherever you are, be all there," I can't help but think of you.
Little one, you hit the ground running and don't look back.
Laughter is your song and the music of your heart. Your belly laughs are contagious.
Your love language is touch. You love to be snuggled.
Laney Rae, you are the ultimate farm girl. And that's what you proclaim to people when you meet them- that, you are indeed a farm girl and a very good one at that. You are so much help to your daddy and a true companion to him as you work alongside him daily.
I pray that the joy that fills your heart will be used for good and that the Lord would be the ultimate joy that fills your heart. Jesus, complete Laney Rae's joy in YOU. I pray that as you walk through this life loudly and wildly, that that your adventurous and tenacious spirit would be used to affect the Kingdom.
I pray this verse over your life precious girl.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
I can't tell you how many times I catch the eyes of your daddy as we sit in wonder at the little girl before us. Teary-eyed and smiling we can't help but utter the words,"We love that girl."
And that about sums it up right there. Laney Rae, we love you. Happy Birthday lovey!
