My dear Violet. You are so loved. Tonight as I rocked you I prayed over your sweet life. This is your prayer.
I pray that you would know the Lord at a young age
and walk with Him your whole life.
That love would shape you.
That you would be called a friend of God.
My sweet daughter,
be pure and holy but never proud
strong and wise but never self-righteous
a truth teller laced with love and kindness
a lover of God's word, reading it daily
not to learn but to commune, to your Savior know intimately.
As a young girl, a giver and a sharer.
As a girl, a fun loving and compassionate friend.
As a teenager, pure and a light to your peers.
As a young woman, focused and set apart.
As a wife, gentle, respectful and quick to forgive and to be forgiven.
As an mother, diligent in teaching and full of grace.
As an old woman, a discipler generous with her time, worthy of praise.
May your life be lived to His Glory.
Things that make Violet special:
-Her first word was "baby" and she loves hugging and kissing her baby doll
-She is a talker, not a walker. She doesn't like standing and she's not even close to walking. But boy can that girl talk!! She already has about a dozen or so words that she loves to say. She is even saying some phrases, but I am pretty sure she thinks it's one big word. For example "Let it Go" <----- someone has been watching Frozen!!
-She loves to eat, but she is super tiny for her age. Only in the 5th % for weight and 15th % for height.
-She is an independent player. She loves playing alongside her brother in his room.
-She loves books. She loves turning the pages and laughs at almost every book I read to her.
-She loves being outside, especially with Daddy.
-She loves her Dad and shouts his name when he gets home.
-Her nicknames are: Vi & Precious One
Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Girl!!
