Happy Birthday Shelly

Shelly...this wonder woman...this fully mature,
fully blossomed woman of God...
from a little innocent 20 something girl
carrying a sun flower for a wedding bouquet,
lover of flowers...this mother of the
two most beautiful children on earth,
she calls me "daddy"...
she is so innocent and soft on the outside...
like a tender, beautiful flower,
but inside she is a woman of steel,
unbendable in her faithfulness...
naturally other centered,
the closet thing to Jesus I know...
and wow...she is my wife...
it's like I won the wife lottery...
God knew exactly what He was doing!

With love,

* the above is an excerpt from a post written by Kit while he was in the hospital. It was very honoring to Shelly and I thought it's a perfect post for today. Happy birthday Shelly!

Happy Birthday to you Shelly!
If Jesus had a female counterpart, she would definitely be YOU.
I hope your day was special in every way- just like you.
Stay strong and bright and stand up straight- just like that single sunflower you carried down the aisle all those years ago.
I Love you and miss you, Poop

Aloha, Shelly. Happy Birthday, you're so beautiful, we all agree. I chuckled about Kit's"I won the Wife Lottery. Ha. ha. ha. How delightful. I can just hear him saying this! Maisha, you're so beautiful, as well. You're ALL in my heart over here in Williamsburg, Va. Still praying and God's still answering. Love you. In CHrist, Mary Mc ALL
