Happy Birthday Rachel!

What a gift this girl is to our family.  Tenderhearted, baby lover, horse riding, baking queen, reader, sister, friend, daughter, granddaughter.  That's this girl.

She continues to grow in Grace, sensitive to the Lord.  A few years ago, I was talking to the little girls and mentioned, as an example of some discussion we were having, that if you take a cookie without asking that is the same as stealing.  The next day I found a note on my desk from Rachel confessing that she had done that very thing.  She went on to say "I didn't know it was wrong and I will never do it again.  I want to honor you and God."  Precious heart.

Happiest of Birthdays, my Rachel.  

We love you!
