Deuteronomy 4:35

You have been shown these things that you might know the Lord is God besides him there is no other.

 Recently, we celebrated our biggest girl.
 It is hard to believe that she is 16.
 It seems like yesterday that I was delivering a six pound beauty whose head was rather cone shaped from being lodged in the birth canal for six weeks while we tried to stop my preterm labor.  When I became a momma, I was overcome with joy.  Being a momma was all I ever wanted and I was so happy to have to her in my arms.  She has been a joy to raise up.  She is bright, gentle, and funny.  She looks just like her daddy and is cautious, can memorize anything, quiet, and so very easy going. 
I could have never imagined my baby would be surrounded by three beautiful, little, Chinese faces on her sixteen birthday that day I gave birth to her.  I am so proud of the big sister she has become.  I know she has moments during the hard of raising these girls that she thinks this crazy, family life is nuts,but God is using each and every day to shape her heart for Him.  I pray her life will be used in big ways to glorify the God we love and serve.  Parenting her is such a tremendous blessing!
