Lizzy is 5!

Screen shot 2016-05-02 at 10.09.31 PM.png

  • Our celebrator of life! Whether it’s clothes-hanger-chain decorations or wrapping current toys in an attempt to celebrate a pretend birthday, Lizzy wants to have a party.
  • She also wants to see the world and can be found packing — along with Joshua — all the clothes they own and moving to Mongolia or England or Tasmania. Usually for 10-20 days.
  • A tender-hearted girl with an infectious laugh. A great, kind friend.
  • Shy sometimes and other times crazy once she’s warmed up to you or after the food has kicked in.
  • Loves to dance. It can be Jr. Jazzercise or post-dinner dance parties in the living room or to the radio or as Elsa (now with her new dress, even though she’s never seen the movie).
  • Loves Jesus and seems to be bearing fruit of a young follower of God. Loves praying conversationally and singing (sweetly off-key) her favorite hymns.
  • Loves Joshua and they have truly become buddies (“our whole life!”)
  • Loves writing notes to friends and our family, often needing decoding because of her awesome phonetical spelling.
  • Loves her babies (Maree, Maria, Bella & Joy) and comes up with quite unheard of names as she dreams about her future kids.
  • Loves kinder (preschool) and would go 5 days a week if we let her.
  • Loves drawing.
  • Loves helping cook or bake.

    Give Lizzy a big hug from me/us and tell he belated happy birthday. Tell her we think it is great that she loves Jesus and enjoys life. Thanks for the signs she holds up to send to us! It was good to see your folks at uncle Glenn’s funeral. I have a peace that he was a believer and the Lord gave me some neat verses at the tiime. I gave a testimony of mom’s to Glenda to pass around to family. It was something i found in an old box of letters that dad had out and it was such a clear explanation of true conversion compared to being religious. Pray for the witness of it!! Keep up the good work there – only a few more months and you will be back in the states. So excited for you and your family. Karen p.s. keep praying for dad. He is in a hard spot with his heart problems and coping with grief. He does well though. Also pray as Marcus is going to be here for a couple weeks the end of May to do work for the clinic before he starts a new job in Las Vegas with a solar panel company. He wanted to move there because his girlfriend is there. He still struggles spiritually. thanks!
