Happy 3rd Birthday, Tirzah!

Today is very special day in the life of our family as it is the day that Tirzah turns 3 years old!  These past 3 years have been filled with both joys and challenges as we seek to raise up Tirzah in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.  We praise the Lord for her birth and her life and consider it an incredible privilege to be given this special assignment from God to raise her in a godly, Christian home.


Happy birthday to you!  We are so grateful to God that He provided you as a gift to this family.  We are very blessed to have you as our daughter and are committed to teaching you according to the standard of Holy Scripture.  Tirzah, we love you very much.  Our prayer for you is that you will be a godly girl and grow into godly womanhood.

Tirzah, you are a constant reminder to us of God's mercy as we had been diligently praying that God would add a new child to our family.  In God's plan, He answered that prayer by sending you into our household!  Indeed, God showed us His mercy through your conception, healthy pregnancy, safe delivery, and your growth in knowledge and stature over these past 3 years.  We are excited about what God has planned for you in the future and how you will fit into His overall sovereign plan.

It is critical that you follow the Lord Jesus Christ and we will continue to teach you about Him day by day.  It is only because of Christ that we have anything - for in Him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).  Not only does Jesus give us life, but it is only by repenting of sin and trusting in the work of Christ on the cross that you can have eternal life.  We will make certain that you understand this truth about salvation and will be praying that God will open your eyes to your need for a Savior and that He will bring the work of regeneration in your heart.

We love you, Tirzah!  Happy birthday, our precious, dear daughter!

Love Always,

Dad and Mom
