Happy One-Half Birthday, Sweetie!!

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. Psalm 139:14

Tomorrow our little “Leana Beana” will be a half year old! It’s hard to believe that she has been with us, in the flesh, for six whole months. She’s still a little bitty thing, and we love every inch of her, as tiny as she may be. Time has gone so quickly since the day that I made that
post announcing the arrival of our first grandchild. She’s learning so much, some things which are hard for her, but she’s delighting in life, while happily investigating and enjoying her world. She can eat real food now, can pick things up with her fingers, and is almost sitting up alone—so “life is good,” as her daddy often says.

How thankful her PopPop and I are for her, having loved her since she was in the womb. We still hope for all of the same things for her as we did last summer when I made that first official post as a blogger, over at the initial Yahoo blog at our business site. Most particularly from that post, I hope that someday when she’s asked the first children’s catechism question: Who made you, Selena?, that she’ll answer with a resounding: GOD!

May she know His love early. And may she love Him early, is my fervent prayer.

Early let us seek thy favor;
Early let us do thy will;
Blessed Lord and only Saviour,
With thy love our bosoms fill:
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still;
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still.

Happy one-half birthday, dearest Lena! Uncle Mark and I simply cannot believe it's been 6 months already! We pray that you will continue to grow and thrive and bring joy to others, as you do so well, and most importantly that you will come to know Jesus at a very young age.
Love and hugs,
Auntie Bucket
