Happy 5th Birthday, Abigail!!!!!!

Abigail came into this world, five years ago today at 7:19 am. She weighed in at 8 lbs 3 oz.

Abigail: Hebrew, "my father rejoices" or "source of delight"
Faith: Latin, "to trust"

Abigail is a spunky little girl that really is a source of delight to our entire family! She loves life!! Abby is excited to have a princess themed birthday party this Thursday. For her special day today, Abby has chosen to have German pancakes for breakfast and pizza bites for dinner.

Abigail loves school and is learning her letters very well! She is eager to read and write. I can't believe how fast she is growing up! FIVE?!! Where does the time go?

Going through her pictures, it's amazing to me just how much her little sister, Selah looks like she did!! And I am reminded how life is as a vapor. While I miss the days of her babyhood, she is a wonderful girl that I look forward to the many years ahead if the Lord gives them! I pray that she will come to a saving knowledge of the Saviour, Jesus Christ and serve Him and love Him with all of her heart! I pray that she will be used in a mighty way to bring honor and glory to the One true and living God! I know that God has a plan and a purpose for each of my children and I will enjoy watching His plan for Abigail unfold in our midst.

Enjoy the smattering of pictures that I chose to share of our precious daughter, Abigail Faith Houston.
