Alyssa Marie Alexander

Since this is the last day we are going to share our last name I thought I would dedicate this post to her. 

God blessed us with her on May 27, 1983.  She was energetic, emotional, and happy.  She loved to dance for us and put on plays for us recruiting her brothers and sister  and sometimes even her cousins and friends...."Watch, mommy!"  "Look, daddy!" 

 When she graduated from high school and they called her name, they said she wanted to be a missionary ballerina.  In the fall of that year, she joined Ballet Magnificat and became a missionary ballerina traveling the world dancing and telling others the good news of Christ. 

She loves her friends passionately and cares about others deeply.  She's a perfectionist in her dancing.  She was never afraid to try new things...going to a summer camp when she was very young all by herself without knowing anyone and moving to Jackson, MS when she was eighteen all by herself. 

She loves Jesus and has always tried living a life that pleases Him.  She is teachable and generous.  Now she loves Jon and she wants to spend her life making him very happy. We love her very much and are so happy that the Lord gave us the privilege of raising her!

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
Psalm 127:3
