"you'll never know what it means to me..."

Happy birthday Bekah-Boo; Happy Birthday to you!!

Once you're 18 they kick you out of Neverland...just kidding. Your imagination's good enough. You can stay 'till 21.:) When that happens you can sail away to cahoots...haha...did i ever tell you that is a real word? And it means "to be in league with"; not a tropical island... Sorry. No! This is't supposed to be funny! I am trying to honor her.

Seriously, Rebekah. You've been such a blessing from God in my life these past 14 years. (that's how long we've known each other, right?) Thanks for being my first girl friend; and my "bosom friend". (haha) God's used you countless ways in my life. To encourage and convict. Thank you for all the times you point out my sin and drag me out when I withdrawl. Thanks for making me smile when I feel like crying. Thanks for making me laugh so hard I do cry. Thanks for all of the memories, inside jokes, laughs, and yes the few tears. Thanks for all the times you've embarressed the heck out of me and for forgiving me when I did it to you. Thanks for helping me prank the deserving and not-so-deserving. Thanks for reminding me to appreciate my brothers. (anytime you think you want one; come over.)
Thanks for being everything God knew I needed in a best friend. Including sanctification...


Our childhood was great, eh?
You always say "Steph and I played quietly together. Then we met you and had crazy games". But ya'll had just as much imagination; you were just waiting to use it with me. Some of our games were admittedly strange. Like Jews escaping Germans; and the whole whipping thing. Some of the things we did were pretty dangerous. Like nearly suffocating ourselves. Haha. Good times. Who thought that up?! Boy am I glad you never "got smart" and started running the opposite direction if I said "I have a good idea"...Sorry for all the times I got you into trouble. And blamed both of us. But hey, you didn't have to follow me...

Basically, I'm trying to tell you how much I love you and appreciate you. As seriously as possible. Seen any peaches lately? You know I am always there for you....no matter where "there" is. I guess you're laughing by now. At least smiling. (No matter how hard you try not to I can always make you smile. dorkamatic)


Have a good day; eat some chocolate; don't think of blue elephants (purple is ok)and remember: you belong to the Lord. He is pleased in his children who follow hard after Him. Especially when they can't see where the path is leading. But follow anyway. Be encouraged! You bring glory to God with your life and shine like a star in this darkened world. Keep it up.

hahaha. yeah. I had nothing to do with it.

betty said...

bekah boo where art thou?

you can talk too ya know. you probably fell of teh chair laughing

joel sczebel said...

No creativity here. I build on the stones that other's have laid.

merry betty said...

not true...what about the tootsie pops that grow on trees??



hahahahahahahahahaha

joel sczebel said...

I really think that there are very few creative people that have ever lived.

joel sczebel said...

ok; an original thought. it was probably my first.

so what am i now said...

yeah, i guess yur right. so am not creative..i just have enough imagination for like 10 people...




(hyperbole)

betty said...

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha



no, i think that electricity was your first. this is your second.
hahahahaha

so who am i now correcting herself said...

"so *i am not creative"

joel sczebel said...

Imagination isn't necessarily creativity, cause it is still built upon what you know, and what others have made up.

rebekah said...

i am back. i was otherwise occupied with the food on my plate.

joel sczebel said...

hahaha; But I'm building on the knowledge that other's have tried and failed, and i just want to shift the methods a bit.

rebekah said...

it is so hard to keep up with ya'll

joel sczebel said...

Food is a gift. Apparently we would starve without it.

betty said...

i wasn't saying i was creative because i had imagination.

CS Lewis was truly creative; as was Tolkien but they both kinda built off eachother....or so it seemed to me. actually tolkien took alot of hsi stuff from those northern people the what's thier names...

damaris said...
