Dear Bridgette,

You are probably one of the best things that has ever happened to me.  I know we joke that if we were not sisters we probably would not be friends, but I think I would still probably facebook stalk you.  We both march to the beat of our own drum and have our own way of doing things, but somehow God has brought us together. He must have known that there would be days that I would need you and days you would need me. I'm now 30 and a mom, I probably outweigh you by at least 50 pounds, I've got easily an inch of height over you but still when I am with you I feel like a little girl hanging with her much cooler older sister.  I believe in you, you inspire me, you are one of the most talented people I know.  You are a free bird and I am a hedgehog or something just amazed by how you take flight.  I feel like God spoiled me by giving me a sister to go through life with, like he said "and on top of that I'm going to give you a best friend." I love you, Happy Birthday! God made you beautiful, he made you just the way you should be and he has big plans for you!

You little sister 

Today's Reflection:
Lord, Thank you for my sister, please keep her safe.  Protect her from the people and things of this world that may try to lead her astray.  Help her to remember that you are her creator and your works are wonerful!  Bless her and everything she does as she becomes everything you have created her to be!

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
-Psalm 139: 13-16


  1. You are the beautiful one. You are the talented one. I am the blessed one, having you in my life. I love you so much Rena Butt. Thank you so much for this! I feel all gooey inside! :) I love you, sister.

  2. That was so sweet...makes me kind of wish I had a sister...but I definitely am not a good sharer- there would have been too many fights over stealing clothes. I guess God knows best huh...=)
