Happy Birthday Em!

Dear Emily,


In the span of 18 short years (or long ones, depending on who you are) you have gone from this sweet baby


   to this sweet lady

janfeb 2013 608                                               You are the most amazing little sister a girl could ask for.

You are: first and foremost a passionate blood-bought daughter of our Gracious Father and wonderful merciful Savior, PRAISE GOD!                                                                                                                                         next you are crazy smart, super cool, totally dedicated, absolutely hilarious, completely beautiful inside-and-out, way talented, and just a little spazzy to boot:).

You inspire me everyday by your diligence, kindness, discernment, humor, love, wisdom, order, artsy-ness, and the fact that somehow, seemingly without trying, you are always in the know…

Me:”Em, what’s crossfit?”

Em: “First of all why do you always ask me things as if I would know the answer?”

Me: *shrug*

Em: “Well, it’s a combination of yada, yada, yada, so on and so forth” (no, I can’t remember what she said, my brain is a sieve)

Me: “And you wonder why I ask you such things”

this happens so often, but I’ll spare everyone any further dialogue.

I love the above picture of you and Sasa-basa. Look at those pretty girls!

Hey look! It’s the threesome trio circa, what, 2006? 2007?

“A couple a weirdos Guinevere” What would we do without each other? Craziness and all?!


I love you Em, and I pray that this upcoming year will be full of amazing adventures, plenty of good books, edifying and restful fellowship, even more good coffee, which means even greater creativity and longer conversations, which in turn, I pray, will mean greater productivity here on earth and the strengthening of eternal bonds. Not that I’m trying to be bossy or school you or anything-believe me! HELP! I’ve started to ramble!

       Long story short: I sure am beyond blessed to not only be able to call you my sister, here and someday  in heaven, but also my best friend!  I love you and I’m glad that your birthday has given me an excuse to post a bunch of pictures of you and to tell whoever reads this blog how much you mean to me!

I LOVE YOU

The LORD bless you and keep you;

the LORD make his face to shine upon you

and be gracious to you;

the LORD lift up his countenance upon you

and give you peace.

  1. Thank You, Hannah for being a loving sister to ‘Lili’! We don’t call her that any more, do we?! You really know how to make your family feel loved, even though she blew your chances at being a spoiled only child…”Are they twins?” no, just a dynamic duo! May you continue to use your gifts wisely and spur one another on for His Glory. Happy 18th Celebration of God sending you a friend! Love, Mama Lisa
