For This Chid I Prayed...

For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted my petition made to Him.
1 Samuel 1:27

We celebrate your birthday, as you turn 12 today,

but we are the ones that got the gift, just the perfect gift,
that on this very special day, God gave away,
a gift of love from up above, so unique and so rare.

God has specially made you from the very tip of your nose,
as precious as a flower, as tender as a rose.
Fulfilled and blessed our lives we have and all because of you,
as sweet as honey, so innocent and pure.

The twinkle of your eyes is brighter than any star,
the smiles you leave behind keep our days bright,
though our laps you have outgrown,
you will never outgrow our hearts.

We watch and pray as you grow,
in love and in faith, in beauty and in grace,
you bring us joy and pure delight,
just to gaze upon your sweet face.

Our hearts you keep warm and are with you wherever you may go,
and as you go on life's journey, only happiness may you find,
you are the joyful moments through our sorrow,
you are our hope and promise of our tomorrow.

Because you are our pride, our unconditional love we pledge.
Because you are our joy, our undivided bond we cherish.
Because you are our sunshine, our embrace is your shield through the rain.
Because you are our little girl, our hugs and kisses will take away your pain.

We asked God for a flower (Jasmine) and He gave us a bouquet.
We asked God for a minute and He gave us a day.
We prayed to God for true love and He gave us that too.
We prayed to God for an angel and He gave us you.

May God bless you our sweet baby girl,
especially on this day, that marks your birth,
for all the special ways you bring
a bit of heaven into our world.

We love YOU, Today, Tomorrow and Always.

Love, Mom and Dad

Happy Sweet Sixteen Princess

Today, I celebrate YOU!!

Priscilla Jacqueline

On your Sweet Sixteenth birthday, I celebrate you!!

You are the child that I prayed for all of my life, and the Lord

Answered my prayers on the day you were born.

On this special day,

I am thanking Him,

For all of the wonderful things that you are,

That bring so much joy to others, including me!

I celebrate your unconquerable spirit,

That lets you meet every challenge

With confidence, enthusiasm and persistence.

I admire your sensitivity.

You see needs that cry out to be met,

That no one else sees,

And you meet them.

Out of your deep and caring heart,

Out of your wisdom,

Out of your strength.

I treasure your uniqueness;

There is no one else like you.

And I feel blessed to know

Such an extraordinary person.

I appreciate you, respect you,

Cherish you, and look up to you.

It's your birthday, but is was us that received the gift,

A gentle, sweet, beautiful daughter.

Your father and I are so proud of you,

Our blue eyed baby girl has grown into

A beautiful princess.

I love watching you dance with Jesus,

Because you know,

He will only allow the perfect man to cut in.

I love you forever.

Farmer Joe's Wife Takes a Day Off!!

I can hardly believe it!! Just one more day, and this farmer's wife will be going to Sisters, Oregon. 2010 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. I have dreamed of this day!! After the tick bites, spider bite, and the countless mosquito bites, this girl is ready for a day off!!

When my family found out that Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims were going to be there, they made all of the arrangements to make this dream into a reality.

While I am there I plan to get a few quilting necessities, fabrics, threads, patterns, autographs (Hee-hee!!).

If you happen to be going to Sisters, look for me, I will be wearing my new The Quilt Show name tag!!

Also, while I am gone, my sweet blogging friend Yvonne over at is celebrating her 200 post!! Please visit her Amazing blog for her Easy and Delicious StoneGable Iced Tea and Giveaway!! PS. All of Yvonne pictures are DELICIOUS!!

Have a wonderful weekend!! I will be back soon!!

I Think I Shall Call Him "Farmer Joe"~

So now he/“we” have finished 600 feet of fencing!! And what a sense of accomplishment he feels. It is a beautiful fence, the wires are tight as a drum, and everything is level. That is very important to him.

Now we have the other 2,000 feet to fence!! But I will not bore you with that!! Have I ever mentioned why he is doing this fencing project? I think from now on I shall refer to him as “Farmer Joe”!! Well, Farmer Joe has the dream of raising some of these. He has already told us that they are for “eating” and not for naming. So the girls and I think we will just call them, “Rare, Medium and Well Done“.

BUT, if one of these comes to live on our farm, I am naming her “OREO”!!

At the end of our day, this was my reward:

The garden that God planted for ME!!

Thank you so much for reading my blog, and sharing my day with me. XXOO
