Happy Birthday, Sweet Daughter!!!

Twenty-one years ago today, the Lord blessed our family with a precious daughter/sister, and not one day has passed that we have not been thankful for His generous gift. She has brought such great joy as well as healing laughter to each one of us with her delightful sense of humor and playful spirit. Her wisdom and discernment in making sensible decisions has been beyond her years. She loves well and judges little, and her faith is marked by a testimony that lives itself out in the day-to-day.

Marynan, you are indeed that "fragrance of grace" which your name so beautifully implies. We have delighted in watching you grow to womanhood and evolve into a wife of noble character. But more than anything, we are grateful for the Godly woman you have become. Your love for Jesus is sincere and your praise of Him is real. It is our desire that you continue to make it your priority to seek and know your blessed Bridegroom, the Lover of your soul, for it is in doing so that He reveals Himself to you even more. Truly, "no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him."

We are undeniably blessed to call you our daughter, and we love you so very much. Happy birthday, sweet one!

Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised (Prov. 31:30).
