Our youngest turns 12 years old today... and there will be three candles on her cake, just for the fun of it. I wrote a poem for each of my 4 children at the time of their birth, what with all that time on my hands back then. Lots of people say, "oh, your surprise baby," or "your caboose." No, she was no surprise. I post this for Kara today so that she knows, that I knew she was no surprise at all. I wrote about Kara earlier and if you'd like to read it, you can click right here...
Kara, so that you will always know whose you are and what a complete gift from God you are.
Happy Birthday Kara Joy!

For thou didst form my inward parts; thou did weave me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to thee, for I am fearfullly and wonderfully made; wonderful are thy works, and my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from thee, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth. Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance, and in thy book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them.
