~Happy Birthday, Kimberly and Noah~

I can hardly believe that 14 years ago Jesus entrusted our first little baby into our care. WOW! Where in the world has the time gone? I remember making her first pair of bloomers and getting her all dressed up in pinks and lace.  She loved it when I would read books to her and she would play with her little toys.  Today, we have traded those times of "story time" for "Girl's time out" shopping and sneaking a fun coffee together. =)  Her toys have been packed away to pass on to her children some day and now her violin and piano are her interests.  She, Sarah, and I have a lot of fun talking, laughing, cooking, working, and being together.  I'll never forget when she prayed at a children's service at 3 years old and both Phillip and I saw a BIG change in her little attitude and life.  I'm SO GLAD that she wants to serve Jesus with her whole heart!
~Kimberly, Daddy and I LOVE you and are so glad that Jesus saw fit to send you into our lives!  Happy Birthday!~
~Then 6 years later our 3rd child was due on Jan. 1st.  But, that baby decided that HE didn't want to leave his Mommy until 12 days later...arriving as a BIRTHDAY PRESENT on Kimberly's birthday!  Kimberly was so HAPPY to have a little baby brother named Noah!  Our whole family was SO GLAD that Jesus had sent us a BIG 10 1/2 lb. baby BOY!  Little did I DREAM that when Noah turned 4 weeks old, my Phillip would tell me that Jesus was calling us to leave everything familiar to us and go be missionaries.  At that time Colombia was still considered the Kidnapping Capital of the WORLD! WHEW! You can imagine how my heart trembled as I thought of taking our 3 little ones to that unknown country.  But, I told Phillip that if God was calling us, He'd go with us...and HE HAS!  We have wonderful memories of our years there! =)~
~Our little Noah is a quiet, tender-hearted little boy who LOVES Jesus, cars, puzzles, and playing with his little brother Elijah and his big sister Sarah.  He likes to wrestle with his big sister Kimberly, but she still wins!  =)  Noah likes to help others and he thinks his little baby sister Mary hung the moon and stars!  =) Noah is an early riser.  Sometimes if Mary awakens early, I'll feed her a little breakfast and then let Noah play with her while I rest a little longer. =)~
 Noah, you are our very sweet 8 year old and we are thrilled that Jesus placed you into our family.  Happy Birthday!
Pics of their birthday party (that we had a tad early) coming soon. =)

What nice birthday people Kimberly and Noah are!
It makes me happy that Kimberly is enjoying practicing her violin and the piano. That means someday I'll get to listen to her play the piano for me when we are at home by ourselves. I've been waiting for a time like that.
Then, the other thing I've been waiting for is the time that my grandchildren will read the Bible to me. What a treat each of these things will be.
You hear that Noah? I hope you're practicing reading, so you can read to me one of these days soon.
Happy Birthday to both of you!
Love, Grandma & Grandpa Dickinson
