7 yrs: She walks in the truth

I have no greater joy
than to hear that
my children are
walking in the truth.
1 John 1:4

Seven Years Ago Today....
She asked Jesus into her heart during a Sunday School class...
And her life has been radically different ever since.
It is so true-  there is no greater joy than to know my children are walking in His Truth.
At fourteen she is an incredible prayer warrior.
She is a great encourager enhanced with deep compassion.
She has a heart for service that I never had at her age and still struggle with now...
She loves Jesus with her whole heart and is more than willing to let the world know it.
She thinks being a Jesus freak is the only way to freak.
She has a notebook she fills with favorite scripture passages and has in the last two years memorized more scripture than I have in my 37 years.
She understands in a way I never did that you don't have to wait 'til your out of high school/college/got a career to live sold out for Jesus and live to make a difference.

Here in our home we celebrate what we term "Spiritual Birthdays"... our rebirth, or new birth into the family of Christ. We do it up simple but memorable... as it should be.
Cake for breakfast.
With a candle.
A prayer of blessing- specific to that child.
And a small gift to help them in their walking in the truth.
Her gift today:
