Rachel said...

As I'm a day late, I'll have to say happy belated birthday...I hope God blessed it and that you are able to look forward to a wonderful year! I'm sure I would enjoy reading your family blog no matter who wrote it, but I think it especially caught my attention since your name is Rachel as well and we're similar in age. :) Many blessings be yours in this coming year!

Happpy Belated Birthday wishes to a wonderful young lady that has blessed us with songs straight out of the heart of God! Oh, how it would have been a delight to us to celebrate your day in SA, but the Lord had different plans for y'all. *sigh* However, we do trust Him with all of our paths, that He always knows best. We love you all!
Now that we know better how churches work down here, we can try again to be of service to you in the future, if the Lord so leads you. God bless your travels!

Happy b-day Rachel! Oh...I hope you'll do that for the others' birthdays as well...the acrostics, I mean. Is that what they're called? I mean the one big word with all the little words coming off of it. And I know that Josiah's birthday is next in the, what about
J oyful
O h so nice
S ensitive
I nspiring
A rtistic
H appy

Anyways, some of those may have been rather cheesy. :) And I don't even know if he is artistic or not! Anyways, some ideas. Hopefully you'll do this for every birthday! :)

What a beautiful picture! I hope your birthday was a wonderful one. It's fun to find and read about a family I knew in my hometown. Greetings to your whole family and please tell your mom that I still use the lovely glass pitcher that she brought to us as a wedding gift.
Blessings to you!
