Happy 18th Birthday, Sarah!!!!!

Today is my awesome sister Sarah's 18th birthday!!!!!! Happy happy birthday, Sarah. I love you so much and I feel blessed to call you my sister. You're sweet, artistic, special, helpful, and God is molding you into a beautiful godly young lady. Just continue to be shaped and used by Him.  :) 
Yesterday evening, we had our grandparents, aunt, and uncle over for a little party for Sarah. She was graced with a few gifts, one of which I would like to share with you all. 
For a present, I made Sarah a candy card, and it was quite fun to put together. I got the idea from Stephanie, over at The Enchanting Rose. The card consisted of 2 pages, and I included 2 pictures below.

 Here is what the card said.   
Dear Sarah,
Happy 18th birthday to my kind sister. Your  helpfulness, love and generosity has been good & plenty for our family. It's your birthday, and just think; you could be in New York watching the 3 Musketeers on Broadway, or exploring in the Andes mountains. But instead you're surround in mounds of your loving airheads. You bring us a cup-o-gold of almond joy, especially when you krackle those stories we all love to snicker about. You're the starburst of my day, and I would love to be shopping with you and going to a theme park in Hershey's, Penn. than by my lonesome self visiting the milky way. I was going to give you 100 grand for your birthday, but it slipped through my butterfingers and I didn't have a  whatchamacallit to replace it. Sorry! Hopefully you'll skor big somewhere else for your birthday. Hopefully you don't rollover while eating all this candy.  :D      Sweetheart, I love you to Reses Pieces. God bless you. Mountains of hugs, love and kisses, Ashley

I attached a balloon to the top of the card with a rolled up piece of paper inside that had a code for a gift card to Dainty Jewell's. She was really excited about that!!!  Oh, and since I couldn't find a cup-o-gold candy bar, I got a small green cup, and attached chocolate gold coins inside so it was a cup of gold.  
 I hope you have a sweet birthday, Sarah. 
2 Peter 3:18
Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.

Have a good and godly day, and if you would like, leave some birthday love for Sarah in the comments. :) 

Walking with Jesus, your friend,
