Bestowing Birthday Blessings on Brianna

Are you wondering what in the world is this? In our family we believe that one of the greatest gifts we can impart is to help one claim the promises of God's word. Another gift is to share with others how they bring blessings to our life on earth and enrich our world. It is our family tradition to take time to do this during birthday breakfasts.  These are the praises and blessings our family offers to Brianna today on her 15th birthday.

Kaitlin~  She is always looking how she can be helpful and it doesn't have to be anything big, although she does take on big projects like repainting the living room,  just that she wants to be helpful.  "Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee:  and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame."  Zephaniah 3:19
Aedan~She encourages me.  She teaches the children and helps to impart knowledge.  "To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion."  Proverbs 1:4  My hope for her "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction."  Proverbs 1:7

Emma Rose~Brianna has the ability to be a good leader.  When Pa and Mama are out she takes charge.

Samuel~Because she plays with me a lot and it is really nice playing with her and she is really kind.  "He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed."  Proverbs 13:2
 Nathaniel~She is a magnificent babysitter.   "A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity."  Proverbs 17:17

Pa~ "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."  John 8:32  At your age Brianna you know so much more truth than I did at the same age.  My blessing is that you take the truth you know and apply it and help it to grow so you can truly be free of the sins of this world. 

Elisabeth~"Who can find a virtuous women for her price is far above rubies."  Proverbs 31:10

Mama~  One of the many things I cherish about Brianna is when I say let's... she doesn't spend one minute thinking about how hard or complicated or bothersome it would be, she just says, "OK!"  and jumps right in.  Brianna finds what she enjoys and makes it profitable, such as her computer and web design.  Brianna is dedicated to the task at hand and is responsible in that I can ask her to do anything and not worry about it again, trusting that she will square it away.  This includes a large realm of things including running an eBay business, teaching the children science classes and helping to organize a major event such as Kaitlin's graduation.  She has an incredible heart to teach and train children she encounters in her many endeavors.  She is dedicated to sharing with them the things of the Lord and wins their hearts by taking all their needs and wishes to heart be it helping them learn a new song on the piano or painting a stick. Brianna has a heart for the Lord as I've seen in no one else her age.  The blessing I claim for her:  "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31
