She shall be praised. . .

Her children arise and call her blessed. . .Proverbs 31:28a

Crafted for a dear friend's birthday. . .I am thankful for the Lord's gift of this dear sweet sister in Christ. She is such an encouragement with her trust and reliance upon the Lord, her quite and gentle spirit and generously loving heart; her fun sense of humor; her organizational abilities, and the way in which she is raising her children (now young adults) in the fear and admonition of the Lord; and how she serves as a helpmeet to her husband. And though I know you won't celebrate until Monday when you can share the day together as a family, may you have a Happy Birthday this day, my dear friend! You are a gift from the Lord!
