Celebrating Esther’s Birthday!

David and I played as our guests arrived for the rose banquet.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lord for His mercy and guidance through the years of my life and thank my family for making the celebration of this so special! Looking back to the fun birthdays in the past and scary birthdays in the past, reassure me that the Lord is […]
