II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Happy Birthday Brooklyn!
It's hard to believe she's 7 already. Last night we watched her "coming out" movie. (as she calls it--I call it her "being born movie) Boy was life different then! I can hardly remember the days before kids now. I certainly can't remember what I did with all that time! ha ha So much has changed in these past 7 years that I almost forgot that she's still my BABY. She's so mature sometimes that I tend to treat her like my equal more than my child. I hope this next year I will spend more time hugging and kissing on her than fighting with her. She's strong willed, that's for sure...but there must be a way to nurture that rather than supress it. She's so much braver than I was at her age, and much more confidant and I am so proud of that. She's not afraid of anything (well, except the dark! ha ha) and she know's whose child she is! The girl can say a mighty good prayer and talking to God about things is her first reponse when a problem or sickness arises. She has the potential to be a mighty woman of God if we be careful to guide her down the right path. I can't wait to see how she's gonna grow up...but for now...she can just be my darlin' little angel.
