Kim, you have been an example to many, a friend to all, and an influence for God’s Kingdom. You have encouraged me when I was down, lifted me when I was weak, walked beside me when I felt like quitting, protected my back from all attacks, and loved me deeply at all times. You were there when I deserved love and when I did not. You have stayed in the game when we were under attack and your light has shined brightly through good times and bad. You are an amazing person, Christian, wife, mom, pastor’s wife, pastor, leader, and friend. You have made every day a good day. I am better for having known you and having loved you. May God bless you in the same way that you have blessed me. May he bless you in the same way you have blessed others. If he does that, then your cup will overflow indeed.

I love you. Happy Birthday!
