A Prayer for My Mackie - For Her Third Birthday

Dearest Mackenzie Claire,

Today, you are THREE years old. Yes, three. Sigh. Time sure seems to go by quickly these days. It seems just like a few days ago we were rushing to the hospital in the middle of the night and anxiously awaiting your arrival.

Mackie on her "birth"day!  

Or we were finally able to pull your sweet little blonde curls up into pig-tails shortly after I rocked and nursed you for one final time.

 1st Birthday!

Or we were spending our days chasing after you and listening to your sweet little voice chitter-chatter as you became quite the talker and socialite.

 2nd Birthday!

Now you're the fun age of three. A year that will bring about more curiosity, more giggles, more smiles, more learning, and more growing as you start blossoming into a preschooler.

 3rd Birthday!

As you start your third year of life, I pray that you use your God-given personality to His purpose. I pray that your curious spirit drives you to some day dive into His Word and find answers. I pray that your tender heart leads you to be compassionate toward others, serving them as you serve Him. I pray that your spunky spirit allows you to show others His loving kindness. 

I pray that you grow up to know Him, serve, Him, and love Him with your entire heart. Be a light for Him!

Here's to another sweet year of life, baby girl. Mama loves you!

- Mama

Happy Birthday Mackie! Incredible how fast they grow and develop their own little (or big) personality!
