Your last year as a teenager!
Just 6 years ago, you turned 13. I could hardly believe then you were a teenager. The last 6 years have gone so fast. You went from not wearing makeup 6 years ago to using some of my makeup 5 years ago, to now me wanting YOUR makeup. I can't believe how many lipglosses you have! You really should share...
This year has been an exceptional year for you Lindsey. I am completely amazed at how God has grabbed a hold of you and transformed your life. I am in awe at how you love Him recklessly and care for people.... all people.... God's people.
As we drove home last night after visiting you, I wanted to remember every little detail of your birth and your life. I wanted to recall how you were born and raised ... and how God worked in you in little ways to make you who you are today. I wanted to see the future, and get a glimpse of what God has for you later. It is times like this when I am excited for your future. I live in expectancy - anticipating the magnificent things that God will show you and do with you.
I love you Lindsey. You are beautiful. I love you, and God is especially fond of you.
