Five years ago today your Father and I was blessed to be the parents of a loving, beautiful, gifted, intelligent, funny prophetic, proper, observant and girly little girl…you! These past five years have had their challenging times, you know like with any other child as we are all born in sin and shapen in iniquity. The constant correcting, doing our best to train you up in the way you should go and the testing of our patience…lol. But through it all, one thing that stands out the most and has remained consistent with you is that your love is unconditional, a special kind of love that can only be from above. You have taught us more about love and how to be more consistent and intentional with the way we show love.
The bible says that children are a heritage of the LORD and the fruit of the womb is HIS reward. You truly have been our reward and have added to our lives in many ways. One thing is for sure, GOD definitely wanted you here. You came by way of prophecy. GOD used your dad to plant the seed by rubbing on my belly and a year later you were conceived.
Your birth story is very unique as well and deserving of its own post so we will give you a little paraphrase of it. You were birthed in your dad long before he and I ever met. He carried you before I did because he carried you in his spirit because GOD gave him your name and it only came back to him after we found out about the pregnancy. At first, we thought you were a boy because that’s just what made sense to us at the time. GOD allowed us both to see you in our dreams before you were born. We knew what you would look like down to your complexion and how people would be drawn to you because of HIS presence in and on your life!
We know you have great purpose here and we are blessed and honored to know that GOD has entrusted us with the very important role as your parents to help and teach you to know and become who HE destined you to be and what HE has destined you to do while you are here!
Our Continual prayers for you are that you will stay connected to GOD and not stray. You will remain a girl who loves prayer because you never let us forget to pray with you and for you every night and that your love for our Heavenly FATHER will continue to grow. We pray GOD’S very best according to HIS will for your life and that you will fulfill all that HE has called, chosen, & purposed you here for!
Dad, Mom, and your family Love you so much! You bring so much laughter and love to our lives and they wouldn’t be the same without you baby girl! We look forward to the many more years of watching you grow up into the young lady GOD has destined for you to be! Happy, Happy, Happy Purpose Was Born Day Shauma ShauMaria Gooden!!!
