Happy Birthday, Annie

Happy Birthday, Annie! Twenty-two years ago you were born! My first granddaughter!  Annie & Pup  My only Canadian granddaughter! This is a very sweet picture of you. You’re so busy now, with going to college and working, but you still have time for a sweet little dog! You’re a dog lover, just like I am! It’s so good your mom got to visit you for your birthday! I wish I could have celebrated with you too.

Heavenly Father, thank You for Annie! She’s a lovely young woman! Please watch over her as she studies, works, plays, and drives. Help her with the friends she makes that they will be good positive influences in her life. Please work out the plan that only You have for her life. I love Annie so much and You love her even more.


Happy Anniversary, Tim and Shauna

Happy Anniversary, Tim and Shauna!


Twenty-nine years! My, how time flies, especially when you’re having fun! We enjoyed having you come to visit us this summer. And, because you come the longest distance, when you come, everyone else in the family, who can, also comes! We had another great family time a month ago. We were so glad you came. You’ve got some more traveling coming up and I’m so excited for you. You know how I love to travel! May God bless your marriage.

Heavenly Father, thank You for Tim and Shauna. Their life together is an inspiration to others. Thank You for blessing them with two beautiful children, who are now grown. Please watch over Tim and Shauna in their work, play, travels, speaking and in every way. I love Tim and Shauna so much and You love them even more!

Happy Birthday, Kaleb

Happy Birthday, Kaleb! Kaleb & Annie (2)  Oh, how the years have gone by! You’re a man! You’re 24 years old! I can’t believe it! You’re my Canadian grandson and I’m very proud of you! After a few years in the workforce, you’re now a student! A law student! You’ll make a good lawyer! This world needs more Christian lawyers so keep at it! Your great-grandfather, my dad, was studying to become a lawyer when the crash came in 1919 and he had to drop out. He would be so proud of you!

I wish Grandpa and I could celebrate your birthday with you. You’ll be in our thoughts and prayers all day!

Heavenly Father, thank You for Kaleb! He’s becoming a fine, Christian man. Please watch over him as he pursues his education! Keep him trusting in You. Watch over him as he drives, works, studies, plays, whatever he does, please keep him safe. Help him with the friends he makes, that they will have a positive influence on him. Please keep him close to You. I love Kaleb so much and You love him even more!

Happy Birthday, Annesley

Happy Birthday, Annie!  Oh, how the years are flying by!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  You are so beautiful!

You were my fourth grandchild and my first granddaughter. I love you and your name! Annesley was Susanna Wesley’s maiden name!

You are my Canadian granddaughter. You’ve become a world traveler, just like me! I hope you love it as much as I do! You’ve been to some countries I’ve not been to. But then, I’ve been to some you’ve not been to, so I guess we’re even!

You’re in school now in B.C. Canada and will soon be changing schools. You’re so far from me in miles, but you are close to my heart. I hope your friends will help you celebrate your birthday!

Heavenly Father, thank You for Annie! She’s a beautiful young lady! Please guide her along the path You have laid out for her. Help her with her friends, with her classes, with her driving, with her decisions. Please keep her well and safe and close to You. I love Annie so much and You love her even more!
