What would life be life if we could not love, or if we had nobody to love? The love a sister has for another is such a sweet blessing from God, and so is my older sister, Christa. I can hardly believe that she is now twenty-one. We have done so much together, been through so much and throughout the course of our lives our love has deepened and the future years can only hold so much more. A friend told me once, "I think birthdays are all about seeing the gifts that you have been given in life. Friendship is one of them."
On this day, for now nineteen years, I have had such a wonderful friend, such a delightful companion and I couldn't ask for more. Dearest Christa, you will never know how much I love you. May God's blessings be richly bestowed on you as you continue to grow in His beauty and grace. I love you.
