There are so many things I could say, so many words of advice.
But I will just summarize them all with these words from the Bible:
The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
I bless the LORD who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
I have set the LORD always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices;
my flesh also dwells secure.
For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol,
or let your holy one see corruption.
You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. — Psalm 16:5-11 (ESV)
May you always set the Lord before you, in all you do, in all you say, in all you are. And may you find fullness of joy as you follow His ways. We love you and are
proud of the young woman you have become.
Happy 21st birthday!
