Havilah~ Fall 2012
This is my Havilah. My Havi. My Havi-loo. My Havi babe.
She's four and a half.
Havilah is so dear. It is truly difficult to correctly describe her and feel like I did an accurate job. Havilah is sweet and tumultuous. She is loving and emotional. She is beautiful rays of sunshine and terrible crashes of thunder. Havilah is a delight to be around. Her words are filled with great tenderness. Her compassion is touching. Her affection is endearing. Her smiles are heart warming. But her anger is fierce. And her gloomy rain clouds are almost tangible. Havilah has been blessed with great depth of emotion which helps her fly with joy at one moment yet sinks her to despair the next. As she grows older the gloom and anger is fading away more and more.
Havilah is the shyest of all of our girls. She doesn't like being the center of attention. But her eyes are always sparkling with a hint of mischief. Her little dimples are so convincing that you can't help but smile too. When she is comfortable she chatters away with the best of them! She is just beginning school. It's slow going, but she enjoys it so much. She still talks in her funny little way. Not quite a lisp, yet so unique and endearing I really hate for it to go! She is the best worker in the house. When she is set on a task she completes it with her whole heart. She fills the role of the middle sister fabulously, jumping in with the older girls with ease and yet stepping in as the older sister to the younger ones beautifully.
My prayer for Havilah is first and foremost that the Lord will draw her to Himself. That she will come to know Him and that her passion would be for what the Lord is passionate about. That whatever anger and aggression is left in her would be filled with a love for others and a desire for the truth.
