Purity is something far too deep for me to arrive at naturally ~ Oswald Chambers

Today my first baby turns 14 (hard to believe I’m that old, isn’t it? ?

I’m caught between wanting to hold onto her for as long as I can and wanting to raise her to be released into adulthood. It’s true, raising teenagers is not for the faint of heart, but if I can remember not to take everything personally and keep the end goal the end goal, I think we’ll do just fine.

My daughter is supremely talented, beautiful and a friend to many. She hasn’t even begun to grasp just how gifted and gorgeous she is, which makes her even more charming.

Kariss, I pray that you will always remember you are a daughter of the King and we are proud to be your parents no matter what. May this year be filled with numerous blessings and may you continue to be a blessing to all you encounter…we love you!

May you be more interested on others’ interests and welfare than your own.

As a reminder, all month on The Daily Dash I’ll be wearing tees from Project 615, who supports world-changing causes through their apparel. Find all their amazing apparel here:
