Tenderhearted

ten·der·heart·ed

ˌtendərˈhärdəd/
adjective

1. having a kind, gentle, or sentimental nature.

My Dear Sister, you are so many things…beautiful, multi-talented, diligent, creative, loving, truth-filled, organized, intelligent, kind, merciful, loyal, hardworking, wise, and life-giving. 

But, I think the one descriptor that fits you best and most exemplifies who you are at the core is tenderhearted.
We live in a cold, cynical world full of pessimists and skeptics. And in the middle of the darkness and snarkiness, you shine. Your tender heart stands out, welcoming the lonely, comforting the weary and offering wisdoms to the floundering. Everything about how you live and the way in which you relate to others originates from your soft, sweet heart. Your kindness and gentleness encourage, minister and bless everyone privileged enough to have contact with you. You exude a tender, compassionate, care-giving heart. 
When I read these verses, I can’t help but think of you:

A tenderhearted person lives a blessed life; a hardhearted person lives a hard life. Proverbs 28:14

Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32

Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Colossians 3:12
Finally, all of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with each other. Love each other as brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude. 1 Peter 3:8
Throughout the years, you’ve been a constant example of God’s tenderheartedness. Whether in sorrow or joy, you love people well, dear sister, and for that, I am incredibly thankful.
As you continue to daily minister to the deep heart-needs of others, may God bless and keep you and shine His face on you.
Have a most wonderful birthday…Love you Sara
