Happy Birthday........Kristen

"Behold, children are a gift (to be treasured) of the Lord; The fruit of the womb is a reward.  Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth.  How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them...."  Psalm 127:3-5

In the Bible, God's Words speak to us of His goodness in allowing us to be given the gift of children and He shares His wonderful promise that they are from Him.  On a beautiful Sunday morning, around 8:28 a.m., April 20, 1975 in Chattanooga, Tennessee God did indeed bless Steve and I with a beautiful gift we named Kristen.  She was beautiful from the beginning and good and she still is.  Her heart is so full of love for those dearest to her.  She is blessed with a loving husband, three precious children, and a family she grew up in who hold her in the highest esteem.  She sees the good in everything, everyone and in every situation.  She is cut out of the mold of her Dad.  She has leadership qualities, she is bright, articulate, dilligent, fun loving, creative, kind and a continual student of knowledge.  She loves the Lord and it radiates from within her heart.  Yes, I am a mother speaking but these things are true about her.  God has called her to be a woman after His own heart and I believe that the best is yet to develop in her life.  Happy Birthday, Kristen......we love you!!!

When I think of her home and how the way she decorates it, I see her love of beauty in every detail.  She has developed into a wonderful artist and her paintings are beautiful. Her favorite color is blue and I understand why......Blue is a calming color and gives a sense of peace.  It dissolves tension and promotes tranquility.  Light blue (her favorite) especially brings ease into the home and harmony into relationships.  Wearing or surrounding yourself with it helps calm aggressive tendencies and eliminates discord.  That is Kristen.......calm, fun, gracious, and lovely in every way!  I hope she enjoys a special day........
