Happy Birthday, Son!

I can't believe it's already been eleven years! What a fun eleven years it has been, too. You came into this world smiling and cracking jokes. From the minute you became mobile, I have not been able to keep up with you. You tell me you love for me to teach you, but you teach me something new everyday. I love the way you are ready to help anyone at any time, how you love Jesus, how you love to fish with Dad and cook with me. Thank you for bringing laughter to my lips and a smile to my heart.... and keeping me on my knees in prayer!

I have your name written your name by many verses in my Bible, but here is the one I pray for you most of all, Psalm 1:

"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers."

I know you will bear much fruit for your Heavenly Father.
Happy Birthday, son! I love you!


We finished our schoolyear yesterday, so we're off today for a fun birthday breakfast at IHOP with Grandma, then a day at the science museum and to see Spiderman 3. Then, we'll come home and have everyone's favorite chicken enchiladas with Dad and open presents. Turning eleven is fun!
