Our sweet Marika
We are looking forward to Eleo and Sarah joining us for lunch today, as well as Mika's friend, Jazmin. It makes it especially good since Mika's Nana is here to celebrate too. We're having Mika's favourite meal, charbroiled chicken, rice and beans on tortillas, then some "castle" birthday cake for dessert. Tim had some neat ideas for decorating, so I'll have to post pictures in the next few days.
Mika, something Daddy and I have remarked on so often is what a sensitive spirit you have. We are so thankful for this, and have prayed much that that softness will be preserved. Our heart's desire for you is to love the Lord Jesus above all else.My verse for you is, "And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength." (Mark 12:30)
Sweet girl, there is so much to pull at your heart and soul and mind and strength - but if you give them all to the Lord, you are sure to be doing the right thing. Continue to hide God's Word in your heart, laying up treasure in heaven, and not on earth.
A very Happy 7th Birthday to you, Marika Ruth!! We love you SO much!
