Random ponderings on God, life, and the humor all around us

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!


Unbelievable, but our little Ariana is one today! This little girl has been such a blessing to us.  It seems it is almost impossible to upset her (well, unless your name is Liam), so no matter what kind of mood I’m in, I am often humbled by her natural joy.  Her names mean “holy” and “God is my crown,” and we pray God will make her holy in His Son, Jesus, and that she will live a life that seeps the gospel out of every pour. 

God, in Your mercy, bless this little girl and call her to Yourself.  Help us as her parents to guide her daily to the life that is found only in Your Son and His resurrection.  We praise You, oh, Lord, with all our hearts for this little treasure You have so graciously given us!   

Will you each take a moment today to praise God for Ariana and to pray for her and us?
