For Leslie Anne

Leslie Anne, what shall I say?
You brighten each and every day!
Your tender smile, your gentle way 
Is a comfort to me, come what may.
Your lady-like spirit, quiet and meek,
You most of all do quietly speak.
You’ve loved to read and learn and grow,
Our Savior you do want to know.
I love the notes in church you write,
You listen to Dad with all of your might.
You stoop down to help others in need,
Your little heart breaks to see a sibling bleed.
You care so deeply for those all around,
I look for great things in you to abound!
I pray you’ll live right and follow God’s ways,
That you’ll honor and love Him all of your days.
It seems only yesterday you were so small,
Not walking or running or talking at all.
And now, look at you! Seven years old!
The days of your life are yet to be told.
Please know that I treasure these fast fleeting days,
From rocking to reading – I love every phase!
Wherever you go, whatever your plan,
I will always love my sweet Leslie Anne! 
~VCB~

Happy birthday to the sweetest seven year old I know! 🙂
