Birthday Blessings From the Mouth of Babes

My dear friend from college, Marni, has a little boy about 9 months younger than our Audrey. He is absolutely, breath-takingly adorable. AND he is obsessed (with a capital O) with my daughter.

To celebrate my birthday on Monday, Marn, sent me this, (and it almost made me spit coffee all over myself).


We’re going through a Kids’ Devotional the other night. While talking about creation and how God worked to put all kinds of animals and plants on the earth, Tim asked Austin, “So Austin, what was missing from God’s Creation?” The little man actually took a deep breath, looked up and said, “Audrey?”

Can we just say betrothal right now and be done with it?

    This is so precious. I would save this statement forever, just for Audrey. She is a beauty.
