Truly a Sweet Sixteen

Our beautiful daughter, Beth, is turning 16 tomorrow.

beth

Beth is one of those young ladies who is just as beautiful on the inside as she is the outside.

She has an inner beauty that is brought on by her deep love for God.

She truly fell in love with her Savior several years ago and has a deep passion to serve Him.

What a joy it is to be her mama!

What a gift she is!

She will go tomorrow to get her drivers license.

She is on another journey in her life now.

Pray for her.

Pray for me.

(I would love to share birthday wishes with her for her special 16th birthday if you have a minute) THANKS!

Oh AMY! She is beautiful...simply beautiful...and what a blessing indeed to have her for a daughter. I can see it in her eyes that she is a special and sweet child of the Lord. I was blessed to have good teenage girls that have turned into wonderful young adults that have given me more sweet girls to love!

Beth- Happy, Happy Birthday. How wonderful to be 16 and have your whole life ahead of you to grow in your faith and be a light to those around you. You have a very special Mom. Honor and cherish her for she will be your best friend through life...when your friends fall away and go different ways your Mom will always have a shoulder for you to lean on...and her shoulder is a good one...this I know! God bless you, honey...and DRIVE SAFE!!!! Hugs from a Wisconsin Nana

Happy Sweet 16 to Beth!

It's the greatest compliment that anyone (especially a mom!) can give that your beauty comes from a deep love of your Savior. I can say objectively that the outside package that God wrapped it in is absolutely lovely too.

Remember:
Keep those hands on Ten and Two...
Ten and Two...
(Or do they say nine and three these days?)

Happy Birthday Beth:) I have been where you are Amy with my kids turning 16. I just went through my 4th one...it has not gotten easier. Thankfully we have our Father to go to in times of 16 year olds driving:)
Girls were very easy though. I had no trouble. The boys..kinda scare me more

Happy Birthday from sunny Arizona! Now, I am a mom too, so enjoy that new driver's license....take lots of pictures, show your girlfriends....but BE CAREFUL.....it isn't YOU, it is everyone else. Don't worry, my kids are almost 30 and I still ask them to call me when they leave my home to go to theirs....a mom never changes.....
Happy Birthday and eat a piece of cake for me OK????

Missouri Gal Nicole said...

Happy birthday to Beth! You are in my prayers as well as Beth. She'll be okay Mom! I admit I was a nervous wreck when my two took off for the first time (ok...more like times) as well. :)

Dear Beth, I will share my favorite Scripture with you:

The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)

Happy Birthday, and God bless you.

Happy sweet 16 Beth!
What a treasure to have found and fallen in Love with Christ at such a young age...
I pray that your birthday is a blessed one and that the rest of your life is committed to the Savior you love so much; because HE FIRST LOVED YOU!
