A precious gift that God gave us 33 years ago today.

Happy 33rd Birthday today to our daughter Jennifer.  How time seems to fly so fast.  It just seemed like yesterday that you were a baby.  You are a gift from God.  He gave you your dad and I as parents to guide you until you were old enough to fly on your own.
When I look back I think about  all the life lessons that we went through together and we still are doing that through the Holy Spirit.  Some times were tough but most were full of joy.  The understanding became clearer to dad and I as as we got to the know the gift that God let us borrow for 18  years. 
Your journey now continues on with raising your gifts.  There will be tough times but mostly times of joy.  Enjoy every moment on your journey.   We are so excited that you will be closer to us in a few short months so we can spend time with you and your family. 

You have grown up to be a beautiful woman that loves the Lord and your family.  We thank God that he chose us to be your parents.

We love you Jennifer!

Hi Janet!

I've been reading your blog and wanted to say you have such a sweet looking family. I think it's so nice how you remember special occasions, and mention them here. I like getting to see pics of family. It makes it friendly and heartwarming to see your smiling faces. I'll be posting some family pics soon so you can meet my family.
I hope this finds you having a blessed day.
PS I'm just four years older than you. :)
