I love April 9th...


Amiyah Elizabeth....
It's hard to believe that 365 days have passed since you were born...

Your name means Beloved and little girl you fit your name so well.

You are JOY

Grandma loves you more than you can know and I thank God for you!

I pray that you learn to fall in love with Jesus.
That you grow to be a girl of God.
That you are curious about Jesus like you are with everything else in life.

Jesus has big plans for you Chunky Monkey!

Grandpa is getting out of the hospital today and so I will be home soon to kiss on your soft cheeks. I can't wait to see you...4 days is way too long!

I love you!

Already? I can't believe it's April. Happy birthday, Amiyah! I, too, pray that you hunger for Jesus and become a woman after God's own heart.

Ahhh...this is so sweet and precious just like Amiyah and Grandma. I could just stare at her sweet cheeks all day. My heart warms with good envy of your love and devotion to her. I didn't realize you were staying away so long. Wasn't thinking, I guess.

Happy Birthday, sweet cheeks, Amiyah.
Love ya, Lelia.

Stacy said...

Oh, Lelia! What a year you've had. Again, this precious one is beyond beautiful. I loved your words in an earlier post about God: "I love most about Him is that He doesn't care what road you took to find Him.
I imagine that the floor of the throne room is covered with muddy footprints, but the path away from it is as white as snow."

What a blessing YOU are!!
