Daddy's Little Darling
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:17
It's hard to believe that just five short years ago I became a first-time daddy. There's no denying that, from her very first day, my "Gabbie-girl" had me wrapped around her sweet, little finger. God has blessed her with the face of an angel, the heart of tender lamb, and the personality of an orangutan. Like all children, Gabbie has her moments. Yet, she is already beginning to show the soft buds of a heart that will soon bloom from the loving touch of Jesus.
Heavenly Father, thank you for my precious little angel, Gabbie. As she grows, dear Lord, please protect her and may her heart rest solely in Your love and grace. Help her, Lord, to put on the truest expression of beauty--that of a 'gentle and quiet spirit'. May she always look first to You as her constant source of strength. Amen.
Happy 5th Birthday, Gabbie! I love you so much!
