Our New Years Gift….

One New Years day, nine years ago, 
 an African princess was born.
And from the beginning of time,
Almighty God deemed her to be our daughter…
and we would have the privilege of taking a ho-hum
day like New Years and turning it into a heartfelt and joyous
celebration of 
Elizabeth Mercy
because she is a celebration in our heart daily!

We started the celebration before Daddy and Liberty
 left for Africa….

and continued it through today.
This is the girl who brings delightful spunk to all who know her.
Her tender, helpful spirit is used by the Lord to bless us daily.
And in the midst of that tenderness she has a dogged determination
to minister to all she meets…which only confirms to our hearts – 
God has amazing things planned for our girl!
If you have a moment, 
please feel free to wish our precious
 Elizabeth a very Happy 9th Birthday!
