Twenty One Today
I wasn’t planning on posting today. But, today is my oldest son’s birthday. Yep, that’s right, my first born turns twenty one today. For some reason kids birthday make me more sentimental and reminiscent than my own. I don’t feel old enough to have a 21 yr old, but I promise you that I am (21 doubled + 2) 😉 This guy is on my heart today and I had to share a few words.
I remember the moment the doctor placed him in my arms. At that moment I thought there was no possible way I could love anything more. But now I know better. With each passing year, the love grows. Until you feel like your heart just might burst right out of your chest every time you look at them! Seriously.
This boy has learned to seek the Lord in the big things and the small things. I have watched him diligently seek and then follow in the direction the Lord leads with confidence. His unwavering trust in God is so inspiring to me and I think pretty much anyone he meets.
I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of raising this young man. God created a special one here, and I am loving watching Him work great things in his life. He is strong, brave, and kind. He is honest, and hard working. He loves with all his heart and engages with all his mind. I am thankful to be his mama.
Happy birthday son, we love you!
