The Best Ornament


I just had to share this...one of my most proud and precious moments as a mom just happened. Clara pulled out the new art supplies she got from Grandma and Grandpa, and she selected a simple white paper and pencil. She studied that paper for a long time, and finally said, "Mommy, how do you spell 'Happy Birthday Jesus'?" She had a good start on it, then asked me to write it once she realized how many letters there would be ;) So we wrote it together.

Then, all on her own, she went to my drawer and cut a piece of string. She threaded it through the hole in her paper and asked Daddy to tie a knot for her. Then she simply and quietly placed it on our tree.

That little white paper and pencil note nearly brought me to tears! I hope Jesus takes as much joy in it as I do.

Clara is such a gift...

Came by to wish you a very Happy Christmas! Love what your sweet princess did....you've obviously been pouring into and molding her heart toward heaven. This is precious.

I also stopped by your other blog and what a fantastic job you did on the house transformation.

Blessings...Lylah
