Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
"Yes, Lord," she told him, "I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world."

And this is my new favorite video. When we got home from dinner Saturday night, Caroline started singing to herself and I caught part of it. It's really the first time she's sung by herself - with notes and words!

Thank you for the good work you have begun in Caroline Suzanne. Please carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
We had a big birthday bash for Caroline Saturday morning. It was so much fun. I was so happy that so many of our friends came to celebrate our little girl's life with us.
I decided we would do an arty-themed birthday party. I follow an art with toddlers blog and got a great idea to do crayon transfer tee-shirts. I found fabric crayons and tee-shirts at Michael's. It was so much fun. The kids got the biggest kick out of seeing their own artwork on a tee-shirt. OK - so the other mommies and I got a big kick out of it, too!
I kept the menu easy - BBQ, chips, slaw, a colorful fruit salad, and cupcakes. The cupcakes were topped with M&Ms, sprinkles, or gel icing. I love making cupcakes.
If we had known that there would be 4 inches of snow on the ground the morning of Caroline's birthday, we would have arranged for our guests to come dressed for a snowman-making contest!

For a summer girl like me, it's hard to be grateful for snow. I went to my Bible to find out if God had anything to say about snow. There were two references in my condensed concordance:
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
"Come now, let us reason together,"What a wonderful, freeing reminder for me this morning as we think of snow. The Lord hears my confessions, casts my sins far from his mind, forgives me so that I am white as snow. It seems I've found a reason to be grateful for snow.
says the LORD.
"Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.
(More snow references in the Bible Gateway concordance.)
