MaddieLynn turned 13 on Thursday, but she isn't a teenager. We have long said that we won't be having teenagers, but young ladies and young men. She is a young lady, and we couldn't be more proud of her!
For a long time she has wanted the two of us to take a cake decorating course together, but there just isn't anything like that available in our small town. Then, one day a few weeks ago, out of the blue, a sweet lady at church who just happens to be an expert at decorating cakes offered to give her lessons.
She said she would like to give MaddieLynn, as a gift, all the supplies she would need and come over once a week to teach her. She wanted to do this because she thinks so much of the young lady MaddieLynn is becoming.
We managed to arrange this as a birthday surprise that was very well received.
We thank God for the beautiful young lady He has given us. She is loved by many.
