Marie with some of her new gifts. One of her favorite gifts, was talking on the phone to her older brothers: Benjamin called just as we were singing "Happy Birthday" to her.  Then she got another treat on Monday when Reuben called...what fun! 

I Timothy 4:12
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Proverbs 20:11
Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.
while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;

 Ecclesiastes 12:1
Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth,

Happy Birthday Marie!! May you grow into a godly young lady that glorifies God with her life.
