How Can They be 18 Years Old?

Can y'all indulge me for another year? Didn't I just post that our girls were turning 13 years old or something like that? Well, today, our precious identical triplet girls turn 18 years old!!! I can't believe they are 18. Where does the time go? I am sure today will be spent with many tears yet again--tears of happiness, excitement for them but sadness for me. Here they are at a time when we wondered what they would look like, would they be okay, how big would they be, were they girls or boys--



Now we know that God created 3 very unique and individual, beautiful girls:

1996

2003



Precious girls, you were created perfectly in our precious Father's hands for His good and perfect will. We love you so much. Happy 18th Birthday!!!

Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose."

Psalm 139:14 "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."

Happy Blessed Birthday to your precious girls! I have 3 girls and they are all 4 years apart. One is 14, 10, and almost 6. As my youngest baby started Kindergarten this week, it was so bittersweet as the official toddler phase of my life end. Also at the same time the like of a High School Teen who is active in sport and Band and fills our night and weekends w/ sport events and Band concerts etc. I wonder how you heart aches w/ having to pass through each phase of their life simultaneously? Each phase is entered as you leave one behind never to experience again, and not to learn from for the "next child." I will pray special peace in you heart today and always!
Blessings,
Valerie Martin

Happy Birthday to all three young ladies! I pray God's blessing, protection, guidance, and wisdom for them now and always. May you as their mother be blessed for pouring your time and energy into their lives, nurturing them as they become their own unique selves. GWOG's (Gorgeous Women Of God) grow more beautiful as they cultivate the traits that radiate God's character. Love, Jennifer in Ohio
P.S. My little chick begins 3rd grade on Tuesday.

Happy Birthday to your beautiful girls! I can't believe another year has passed; I keep the beautiful words you typed when they turned 17, where you speak of God's precious provision before you even knew Him. You have a beautiful heart, yielded to Him, and I am inspired by your words. And a Happy Day of Birth to you, too, mom!
