Well it's been quite a weekend really
filled with celebration for our beautiful girl
who turned 18 yesterday.
18? how can that be!
After the events of the week, it was so lovely to celebrate.
We had a lovely party outside with a fire
and two diesel heaters
which is pretty good for winter.
We gave her a beautiful ring,
I'll try and take a picture of it sometime.
We ate plenty of good food.
She got lovely presents too.
But the thing I like best was reading the cards
her friends wrote her.
They clearly love her and care about her.
What an awesome kid.
Thank you God for bringing her so far.
For I know the plans I have for you,"
says the LORD.
"They are plans for good
and not for disaster,
to give you a future and a hope.
Such a pertinent verse for us here in Christchurch.
