On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Happy Birthday to my Sister!

A very happy, happy birthday wish for my sister, Roberta. We have been sharing life since Mom and Dad brought her home from the hospital that October day many, many years ago. We didn't have a birthday party every year, but Mother always baked a cake and we always celebrated with family.

On her 4th birthday,
holding up that birthday cake
baked with loving hands by our Mother.

Holding very proudly that
coveted baby doll.

Ooops! Tears on your birthday aren't good.
She had to share the doll with her little friend, Peggy.
(I'm the pouty one in plaid because it's not my birthday!)
Notice all the girls are wearing dresses for this simple neighborhood party.

Happy Birthday, Roberta!
All my love to you!
