Just don't expect her to go on a merry-go-round with you.....

Today's my friend Faith's birthday! And we'll just overlook the fact that I was half way through elementary school when she was born, 'k?

Over the past 8-9 years, Faith and Chad have become precious friends to our family. We first met them in our Nearly/Newlywed class at church almost a year before they got married. We went to their wedding barely 2 weeks after Becca was born!

Sept 2008

We've been on mission trips, beach trips, and shopping trips together. And I can't even count the number of South 21 trips!

Faith was the first person I told when I found out I was pregnant with Hayes, besides Daniel of course! Telling her and her reaction is still my favorite memory of that time. She loves on my kids and I look forward to the day that I can return the favor.

August 2008
Faith is a sweet, talented, Godly woman. She's smart and creative and is striving to honor God with her whole life. I just love her and am so blessed to have her in my life.

In Cuba, 2004 (yes Faith has a pony-tail!)

Happy Birthday, Faith!

"For I know the plans I have for you, Faith," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you, Faith, and not to harm you, plans to give you, Faith, a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Thank you for this. I am so thankful that Faith has godly friends like you in her life. You and Daniel have been a very encouraging influence and we just love your whole family. Gracias amiga! (Sorry I don't remember the Portugese version). I know that Faith will enjoy this. Until next time, thinking of cheeseburgers and cherry lemon sundrop!


P.S. I was going to throw in a good Office reference, but felt it a tad inappropriate on this oocasion.

Oh dear, it's barely 10:00 and here come the waterworks! Thank you so much for this sweet birthday message.

I am SO thankful that the Lord brought our families together. I had no idea all that we would have shared over the past 8 years, but there are so many memories that I will cherish forever. I am so blessed by your friendship and don't know what I would do without it! You are the best and I love you!
