Happy Birthday Destiny

Today is the birthday of a very special young lady. On this day, fifteen years ago, God blessed us with Destiny Jane. All who know her cannot deny what a joy it is to be around her. I have been blessed to be able to have her as a dear friend. She has taught me so much over the years. She is always honoring her parents, loving her siblings, and is so patient and loving towards others. Whenever she is around other people she always makes things so much funner...and never thinks about herself but rather what the other person wants!

She has made some very fun memories over the years with us! Whenever Destiny and Karissa are in the car with me, you can be sure of two things...first is that we probably look like a bunch of silly girls, for all we do is laugh and laugh and we have no idea at what we are laughing! Secondly, you can be sure that we will most likely stop at a Dutch Bros. for a smoothie, even if we have to dig up ever cent that we can find! Oh...and one other thing, you can be sure to see Destiny in the back seat either rummaging through my purse (for whatever reason, I have no idea), or stealing my makeup! Also her and Karissa, take pleasure in jumping on me, right when I am dozing off to sleep after talking to them till 1am! Yeah...those are great memories :)

Destiny is such a remarkable woman. She never ever seems stressed out at about anything, but at all things she brings laughter into them. Like what it says about the Prov. 31 woman- " Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come."
Destiny's love for her Lord and family, shine through all that she does. God does indeed have a truly wonderful plan for such a wonderful woman!
I love you Des, and pray that you shall continue to prosper in the work of the Lord, and His plan for your life!
Happy Birthday!

Thanks Kaila for such a beautifully written summary of Destiny's life. I agree totally. God sure has gifted you and Tami in saying things in the most eloquent way. Your words blessed me and I'm sure Des. Happy Birthday Des. Love you both. Grandma Dot
