Abbey's Birthday Blessing

A birthday blessing for you, my beautiful first born daughter...

Blessed is Abbey,
for she does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but she delights in the law of the LORD
and meditates on His law day and night.
Abbey is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither -
whatever she does prospers.
~ Psalm 1:1-3 (TNIV)

P.S. I'm so excited that your front teeth have finally begun to come in! (A full year and a half after you lost them.)

* I have decided to find a verse of blessing to pray over each of my children this year. On their birthdays, I will give each child his/her verse in a frame to hang above his/her bed. Have you ever done something like this for your kids?


  1. What a great idea! We pray for our kids all the time, but this really makes it personal for them :)

  2. Sweet Abbey! Blessings on another year.

  3. Yes! The boys will ask for their blessing if we are not quick to give it!


I am so glad you stopped by! My hope is that we can engage in a conversation together. I love to reply to your comments, but I need your help to make that happen.

If you have a blogger profile, would you consider editing your profile to "show my email address?" Then, when I receive your comment in my email inbox, I can reply directly to you.

Alternately, you can check the box "email follow up comments to..." so that I can reply to you right here. (You will also receive other readers' comments using this method.)

I'm excited to get to know you better!
