HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR DIANA




Happy Birthday, Diana!!!  I thank God that He brought you into my life and onto this blog!!! 
I love you, Carrie

Happy, happy birthday to my dear, dear friend

It's hard to believe your birthday's come around again.

You're looking young and beautiful in your Santa hat,
Why you haven't aged a bit, and we're all jealous of that!

I hope you get lots and lots of presents on this happy day 
So many you'll have to borrow Santa's sleigh!

I hope your day's terrific, the best it's ever been,
And I hope you'll share those presents with Me, your silly friend! :-)

                                                  Love you! Teresa

 
Diana you are my South Carolina Mate;
And as a friend you are just great!

Charming in personality, and beautiful in looks;
Wonderfully inspiring, and the best taste in books.

So grateful to know you, my life is so much richer now;
You are a true blessing, so go and take a bow! :-)

Happy Birthday Diana! 
Love you always!
Noela



A friend of ours,
Diana Flowers,
knows how to write an amazing review.
How she does it, I have no clue,
but it is something she’s good at
and for that I respectfully tip my hat.
Today is her birthday and therefore I wrote this rhyme
to show I love her, this dear friend of mine.
~Dutchy~





We're celebrating all day long! Pull up a seat and have some cake and punch! 



Giveaway: Wish Diana a happy birthday and your name goes in the drawing for a
copy of Liz Curtis' Higgs' devotional Embrace Grace to bless you through this coming year!

You can purchase Embrace Grace from CBD, Deeper Shopping, and other Christian book outlets.

  1. Happy Birthday Diana...hope this birthday will be the best ever! BTW don't you love how my poetic talent seems to have "rubbed" off on Noela and Marian?! :-)

    1. I love the poetry! haha Thank you for helping put this together. The age part in your poem...ahem. Hasn't aged a bit? God was gracious to me when Paul took that pic, b/c for some reason it looks touched up and isn't. I was like...where's all my wrinkles? Then I looked in the mirror---ugg. Would that all my pics would turn out like Carrie's with her dewy complexion. sigh

  2. Happy, Happy Birthday DIANA!! Wishing you the most blessed of birthdays today! Lol - I hope you get a laugh from that little poem I made up in all of 60 seconds, although the words ARE all true! I think my hubby's poetic "talent" has rubbed off on me more than Teresa's somehow!! :) Thanks for always being such a sweet, understanding, and amazing friend!! BIRTHDAY HUGS to you!!

    1. Thank you, CARRIE! Remember last year Paul and I had the crud on my b'day and Christmas? Hoping and praying yours will leave so I can get that hug! I'll take TWO!

  8. Oh, I am totally chuckling and fighting the tears back at the same time! This is so awesome and I'm so glad I didn't peek last night! It was tempting. lol CARRIE, now you have 3 poetesses on the blog--who knew? These are great poems and I am so touched. Wow!

    CARRIE-God has used you to bless me, encourage me, and help teach me perseverance in the midst of pain. You are the most cheerful giver I have ever seen. Thank you for obeying God when you asked me to be on the blog. It truly has enriched my life. I love you!

    TERESA-such a dear, Godly woman who uses her talents to bless so many! And you are so wonderfully crazy. LOL Love you, my twin! Thank you for the precious poem, too!

    NOELA-such a smart, witty talented lady. You are so funny! lol I still think with the talent that you have to write, you should be writing your own book. And now I know you can write poetry, too. That was a lovely poem...thank you! You are such a blessing to all of us! I love you!

    Marian-my dear Dutchy friend who keeps me smiling with her "nutty" self, even when I don't feel like it! Who knew that when we first became FB friends (b/c of our mutual love of LAURA FRANTZ), the journey God was to take us on? Thank you for the wonderful poem, for fixing my blogging blunders, and for always being there for me. I love you!

Glad you like to celebrate more than just one day, because I am also late getting here. I always forget that my daughter, Tiffany was born on your birthday too! Way too many things to get done, while I'm home! ;-) Please add me to the contest.

  31. Happy birthday Diana! My daughter's birthday is Dec. 20th. When she was really little, she was sad that she hadn't been born on Christmas day! Now, though she likes having her own day. How did you feel about your birth date? Have a wonderful & blessed year!!
