It's a birthday party for Brenda!! Today our dear blogging friend turns 40. And while I am a ways off from that number myself, (heh-heh) I am joining some other friends in celebrating this special and milestone day with her!
I cannot even tell you how I met brenda online, or when I started reading her blog (some friend, huh?) But I CAN tell you that she is a great encourager. I love it that she is a researcher. She doesn't just accept something at face value. She studies God's Word and finds the answer for herself, as she seeks God. Some of those instances can be seen here:
And she is an excellent crafter! I love the creativity she has, and instills into her children. I actually started doing more with my own girls after seeing all the fun Brenda was having at her house!! Some of my favorite projects are:
And while she is not the best at keeping up her house...(evidence)...she is honest about it!! And encourages others to improve their weak areas too.
Thank you Brenda for being a wonderful bloggy friend! I have thoroughly enjoyed our forays into Fitness Friday, Casually Feminine, Keepin' It Real, and Modesty Is Beautiful (thank you for the idea!).
I love Brenda's sense of humor, and the snarky comments she sometimes leaves on my blog posts. She makes me laugh a lot! And while it may seem weird to call her a friend when we've never met in real life, she does all the things a friend should do: including giving good advice when asked, and being discreet.
Brenda, I pray for you the richest blessings God can send...a long life with your fabulous hubby....beautiful daughters to grow and reflect the Spirit found so freely in their Mama...and someday....a perpetually clean house!!
HAPPY 40th BRENDA!!!
