I can't believe that Amanda is already 10 years old...she is growing very quickly into a beautiful young lady. Her birthday was a reminder to us all that we all have a beginning, and therefore we are not God (who has no beginning) - Amanda is made in the image of God, and so is special to God and to us. She has also been made for God, and so we enjoyed celebrating her purpose in this life - to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. I long to see God's continued work in her life as she grows more and more into the woman God wants her to be!
