Your First Birthday!

Today’s extra special

because you turn ONE!


In a few short days we’ll eat cake and ice cream

and have lots of fun!

We’ll light your first candle

and make a big fuss,

to be sure that you know

you’re precious to us!

Today’s extra special

because you turn ONE!

Thanking the Heavens that God made little girls

especially this little darling livin’ under the sun.

Dancing through my head…

“I’m not so much concerned about what is NOT in Heaven, than in what IS.”  The Dawn

(And oh how I hope-ity-hope, with a heaping sprinkle of prayer, to find WE are HIS glitter there!)


“It is much better to not fit in on this earth and fit in when we get to Heaven.

Than to fit in with everything on this earth and get to Heaven

to find out that is not where you belong.”

Jamie Grace
