You and I met 13 years ago, when Richard & I first got together. We hit it off right away... but then, I guess it would have been hard NOT to, considering how much we both love Richard, right? And though we are sisters-in-law, we love each other like we were biological sisters!
You treated me like your sister, even when Richard & I were still partying; you never drank liquor except on rare occasions, but you never judged me for drinking so heavily. In fact, you never judged me for anything I did wrong. I knew that anything you and I shared, would stay strictly between us, and that you would never stop loving me no matter what I told you, nor would I ever stop loving you for anything you told me.
You are one awesome mother, too, to your 3 wonderful sons... Eddie, Jamie, and Adam, who also have always treated me like a biological aunt. One of the things I loved hearing was that when their Daddy died when Adam was just a baby, you dedicated the three of them to the Lord, and asked Him to take care of them, since He was their only Daddy then. How awesome is that???
You saw how happy your brother and I were together, and how deeply we loved each other, and you wanted the same. So I asked you to send me a list of things you wanted from the Lord, so I could pray on them. One of those things was a man that you could love as much as Richard & I love each other. And within a year, Father Yahweh had answered your request, in the person of Steve Bolomey. What a wonderful brother-in-law he is, and we love him very much too!
And most importantly, we are both born again, so we will spend all of eternity together, loving, laughing, and sharing cups of coffee together! You are an awesome sister, and I love you SO much! I pray our Father will bless your birthday, and give you your heart's desires!
All my love forever & ever!
P.S. Mama said to tell you happy birthday too!
Yahweh bless you, and keep you; Yahweh make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you; Yahweh lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace.' (Numbers 6:24-26)
