Bethany turns 4!
I can't believe you are 4, where has the time gone? I praise God often for your infectious smile, laugh and the sense of humor that reminds me so much of your Daddy. You love your Callie kitty, your babies and all your friends so much! You are a big cuddler and when you are upset you ask for hugs and kisses to make it better, melts my heart! I know the past 6 months have been particularly hard for all of us but I am amazed at how resilient you are and the JOY and LOVE that pours from you as if it were coming straight from Gods heart to mine. The way you love and adore your "Bubba" just makes my heart smile. He equally adores you and would fight the world to protect you. I know your Daddy would love the little girl you have become. Your teachers say, you are a great helper and that you are so obedient which makes me laugh because you definitely like to try and push all the boundaries with me, which I guess that is how it should be. You often ask for your Daddy and anytime you have an opportunity to "wish" for something it is always that "Daddy would come back." Oh how I could make that come true for you and my heart breaks all over again every time you say it. But even though I can't what I can promise you and what I do believe beyond a shadow of a doubt is that your Heavenly Father LOVES you and He will NEVER leave you! He is your Daddy and is filling in all the gaps that your earthly Daddy once filled. I also know that if your Daddy were here he would tell you how much he loves you and that you are the most beautiful girl in the whole world, he would praise you for how you love and care for others. He would also share with you just how much God loves you! So much in fact that He allowed His son Jesus to die so you could have a relationship with Him.
You are a gift my precious baby girl and you add so much to our family with your love and laughter. I am praying that God will capture your heart and you will come to know Jesus personally at a young age and trust Him with all your heart! I thank God for choosing us to be your forever family!
I love you with all my heart,
Proverbs 3:5&6 "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your paths straight!"
