Twenty years ago today, I was awaiting the birth of my first child, in our little rented townhouse in Sunnyvale, CA.
It was a cool rainy day, but full of bright hope for this first-time mother.
At 11:19 p.m., the Lord brought her forth, and we named her Gabrielle Kara:
Gabrielle : "God is my strength"
Kara : "dear one"
From a tiny 5 lb. 15 oz. babe with a swath of jet black hair and large dark knowing eyes, she has grown to be such a lovely woman of God, filled with grace, ever growing, working with her hands in delight, organizing, managing, and creating within her family sphere.
Happy 20th Birthday, my precious daughter! I love you more than my feeble words can convey. How blessed I am to have such a precious arrow in my home.
