Apple Pie! (Mia Turns 4...)

On Saturday night, Elise and I were treated to an incredible night out with friends from church. During the course of our conversation, my wife mentioned in passing that she loves apple pie. The next morning at church, I found an apple pie in my office (and, if you must know, an exquisite bottle of wine). Now, if you know my wife at all, you'll know that she was not dropping hints or suggesting anything in her comment to make that happen. Had it been me, however, your suspicion would be warranted. It just turned out that our friend is an apple pie aficionado or sorts.

And, as blessings would have it, yesterday was Mia's 4th Birthday!

So I called Elise and told her to hold off on making anything for our 'non-chocolate loving' child and that I was bringing home a special treat for Mia. The gift from our friends made for a special night around the Deeble table:

Happy Birthday Mia! Father, continue to pour forth Your Spirit upon sweet Mia...speak to her spirit of Your love. Grant this family continued wisdom as they abide with You. You hand picked these adorable girls to be raised specifically by these parents....You have a plan. Your eyes are upon them. Guard and protect them as they yield their lives to be Your vessels. May their abiding with You grow sweeter and sweeter. I'm thankful Your grace is enough. Thank You for choosing them to know You. Surround them Father, in their coming and going. In Jesus name, AMEN
