First, you looked into the eyes of your precious earthly father, who would point your heart to your Beloved Heavenly Father. We couldn't have imagined on that day the things God had ordained for your eyes to see.
That just ten years later those eyes would go across the world to look into the eyes of those He came to save, and those eyes would close in prayer as you prayed with those who would receive Him.
That you would look out into the South China Sea and stand on those shores while new sisters and brothers "went swimming."
And on the shores of the Mediterranean, where a dear new sister in Christ would be baptized, in part because of your heart to share the love of Jesus with her...
Yes, your beautiful eyes have seen great things already. And I know there's more to come!
I pray most of all, no matter what your fifteenth year brings, that you will fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of your faith... (Hebrews 12:2) And I pray that "the eyes of your heart will be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe." (Ephesians 1:18-19)
Because of you, my own eyes are getting a first-hand glimpse at something God Himself is doing, and it is my privilege to be your mother. Happy Birthday, my sweet girl.
