MISS AMIYAH PUMPKIN PIE…
Two years ago today you came into my life and completely took over every vessel of my heart.
I love everything about you Little Girl. From your tiny ears that don’t listen to Grandma when I tell you to not take all of my books off of my bookshelf.
To the little toes you let me paint hot pink. Not once, but a few times because you smear the wet paint all over your foot and then say “uh-oh” with such innocence that I believe it was an accident and re-do them.
I love the sound of your voice when you say “I lu you” and how your little hands get into everything.
I love to watch you dance and play with your little sister Juliana; even though we have to protect her from your sweet, yet very aggressive love that she craves.
I love how you can make your bad attitude filled teen uncle Aaron beg you for kisses when you call him “Ewin”.
I love how close you are to your Aunt Alivia and how you search the house for her after she leaves for school calling out “Awivia”. Over and over again.
And how you melt your way right into your Papa’s heart.
And how when your Mommy walks into the room your face lights up only for her.
Or how just now you decided your sleepy and as I’m trying to type this you fell asleep on me.
I loved watching you last week when you put on 2 different high heels of mine and walked outside with your hands on your hips. You had only been awake for awhile and your hair was crazy. You had on one of your aunt Alivia’s t-shirts that you wore to bed, but you looked full of confidence and beauty.
You are such a gift from God, Amiyah Elizabeth.
I love watching you fold your hands and pray to Jesus everyday.
I love how you try to use praying without ceasing to get out of going to sleep at night.
I love your prayers even though the only words I can understand are “Jesus and Amen” and yet I’m sure when your prayers of passionate gibberish falls upon your Creator’s ears they fill His heart to overflowing.
You are such a gift from the Lord, Little One.
As I look at you, there is a fierceness inside me that wants to protect you from ever experiencing anything Satan has planned for you, but I know I must trust God with your life.
I want to be someone that teaches you about Jesus because of how I live life in front of you.
I’m already celebrating the day you ask Jesus to be your Savior.
The day you want Him to be yours and you His. I hope I see it firsthand.
I pray you grow close to Him and desire Him above anyone or anything else in your life.
Oh my Precious Princess, you have no idea what is coming your way, for God has such big plans for you.
