God's lil' Princess turns 9!!

Sunday, September 20, 2009

Okay, this shirt is just perfect for my lil' Lil. It's got her name right on it (lil'), she loves all things princess-y, and she most definitely belongs to God!! Thanks Oma and Opa!

My precious Lily-girl turned nine today. The big question of her eighth year was, "God, am I supposed to be a prophet or a nun? I'd like to know as soon as possible please!" We have had many conversations around this question and I love it because it is just so Lily! She is bold and courageous and is learning to truly pursue God. She asks God for every little thing, and most of the time, He answers her right away! Lily doesn't back down, and I believe that our Lord has a soft spot for His children who go boldly before His throne! Even if it's just a little thing (like asking Him to play with a friend), I believe that He answers her because He wants to show her that He loves her and hears her prayers. He so enjoys His littlest ones!

Lily's Nona (godmother) helped Lily with her cake. Thanks Tonja! My kids are usually thrilled with sprinkles! I guess that we're setting a new precedence here!!

Lily got a new princess dress for her birthday. She received it on Friday and planned to wear it to church today (minus the crown and gloves). But, this morning, she told me that she had decided that she would be too distracted by her beautiful dress if she wore it to church. So sweet.

I love you my precious daughter! You are a gift beyond compare. I pray that your ninth year is one of joy and growing love for God and others. May God fill you to overflowing!! Happy Birthday, princess Lily!

And a beautiful princess in HIs kingdom she is!

It is an honor and a privilege to battle with you in prayer today. May the Lord simply hold your family close as He pours out HIs passion and refining fire of love. You challenge me sweet friend, and encourage me to live radically for our Lord.

And may you be drenched in His unfailing love,
Sarah Dawn

Happy Belated Birthday Lily! It looks like your day was very special! Teddi really likes your cake and your new princess dress. She was also excited to see that you have purple gloves like she has!

Sarah, Lily's talking and listening to her heavenly Father is such a beautiful thing. She certainly hears His voice! She sure blesses my heart!

Thank you for sharing about your nine year old's special day!


Tina & Teddi, too
