happy birthday, maggie!

today our first born daughter turns 3. from the bedrest to the emergency c-section to the many hours of screaming and crying (deputation travels!) to the endless joys of her expressive and passionate personality, we praise the LORD for her. there is so much about Christ that i never would have known otherwise. she loves to be read to, play with her imaginary friends, tell gwyneth what to do, go to the park and just have fun. i think she is officially british because she asked for scones for her birthday breakfast=) she is fully potty trained, knows several verses and catechisms and LOVES TO SING! she also loves the color pink. i'm not sure how that happened. she insists on sleeping with her bunny, molly, the green blanket and sometimes several other blankets. she is extremely habitual. and her communicating skills amaze me.
our prayer is that she will be saved and that all of that passion will be used for Christ and His kingdom.

Happy Birthday, Maggie!!! It's hard to believe that you are already 3. I remember coming to the hospital and holding you so that your Mommy could blowdry her hair. I hope you have a GREAT birthday!
