From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother's womb. I will ever praise you. ~Psalm 41:6
While granddaughters Virginia and Alexandra have birthdays two days and five years apart in July, Savannah stands on her own with an April 27th celebration. We can't be there, of course, to share in Savannah's special day, but daughter, Sarah, sends some sweet photos of the birthday girl opening her gifts.
The collection of stuffed unicorns we send are a huge hit! I'm sure you all recall that Savannah is enamored by these mythical creatures.
We also send Savannah a musical jewelry box, something she asks for, and she is delighted with it, and the little ballerina that spins around inside.
The third gift we send to Savannah, knowing she's a budding writer, is a diary.
You can't see the front, but rest assured it is adorned with a unicorn. What else?
I don't know who gave her this make-up kit for little girls, but I'll bet dollars to donuts it's from daddy John's parents.
Oh, what a mess this is sure to make, but the fun will far outweigh that. Savannah's sisters will enjoy playing with it, too.
I still have to pinch myself when I realize our little Savannah has turned seven. It just doesn't seem possible! I'm sure I stand with many grandparents reading this who are astonished by how fast time flies when it comes to the grands growing up.
But no matter where they are in their life stages, our grandchildren can always be taught how much God loves them, how they can rely on Him for all their needs, and daily give Him thanks and praise.
