Happy Birthday, Becky! <3

Celebrated this precious girls Birthday today over a delicious hot drink at one of our favorite Cafe meeting places. <3   

 I was SOOOO excited to have her open the present that I've been working on making the past few days...it was a photo album full of almost 100 pictures and about 70 favorite quotes/verses/songs/memories etc... <3 So fun reminiscing thru our *plethera* of beautiful God-given memories in pictures. "As soon as I saw you I knew an adventure was going to happen." ~Winnie the Pooh  Adventures with Jesus are the BEST. :)  Grateful for all the ones He sent Becky and I to experience and walk through together over the years. <3 


"Oh Darling, let's be ADVENTURERS!" ...and secret FBI agents. ;)  This picture is from about 9 years ago. LOL.


 I prayed and asked the Lord for some verses to include in her Birthday Photo Album...and this is one of the one's God gave me. "Before I formed you (Rebecca Danelle Keilen) in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations (Philippines, Peru, Russia..so far)." ~Jeremiah 1:5  What was super special about that is she said on her Birthday...which was last Thursday, that was one of the Birthday rhemas God gave her...and I had no idea!  How special is that?  <3  God is so good!



A good friend will sharpen your character,
Draw your soul into the light,
And challenge your heart to love in a greater way. 

"Let those be thy choicest companions who have made Christ their chief companion."~Thomas Brooks

Praying for my world-changer friend!!  Grateful for another year of life God has blessed her with!!  She's taking off for the ATI conference tomorrow morning and is doing the Commit (Girls program) part of the conference this year and speaking several times to the girls.  I'm praying for Jesus to work thru Becky and all the other speakers to bless and encourage all the precious girls hearts who will be challenged by the truth they will be hearing.  I SO wish I could be there...it's been super hard for me this year that I won't be there...when I always used to go to conferences with Becky.  But it's okay!  God has me home right now...and I can pray for everyone involved with the conference from here. :) <3

"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." ~Mark 16:15  (AS you are GOING preach the gospel...whatever you're doing...preach the gospel...at the store..getting your hair done...washing dishes...you don't have to go to a different country to share the gospel!  Do it all the time...to all around you...wherever you're going and whatever you're doing.)---One of the verses Becky shared with me today and we had a great conversation about it. <3  

"He is your friend who pushes you to love God more."  Thank you, Jesus, for Becky...and thank you, Becky for pushing me to love Jesus more!

Love Always,
Monica
