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
