Sixteen!

Guard your heart above all else,
for it determines the course of your life.
~ Proverbs 4:23 ~

Sixteen years ago, my husband and I were blessed by the birth of our daughter, Noah. She is gentle, loving, intelligent, fun, and creative—as an artist and musician. Her heart’s desire is to become a woman whose heart is after the Lord’s.

These photos trace her growth through the years.

One week old, and she has daddy's heart.

She loves little children and they love her! One of the best things said about her, by a three-old year boy, when asked by his mom why he and Noah were running around the church sanctuary, was “I’m out with my girl.”

Like I said, she likes to have fun!

Heavenly Father, thank You for bringing Noah into our lives—she keeps us young, and is so much fun! We appreciate the qualities, gifts, and talents You have given her. Bless her all the days of her life, that she may glorify You as she continues to grow in You and becomes a woman whose heart is after Your own. Fill her with Your Holy Spirit that she may continue to grow in Your grace, peace, and love; in Jesus’ name, amen.
