My Heart

I cant bring myself to say it out loud. But I think I can type the words....."you are 12 today"

As I sit here and think of how to describe you, my eyes fill with tears. Where do I start. You represent so many things to me.

Through you The Father has shown me protection, mercy, love, promise, are so very special. Our first born son, you gave me the title mom, you made us parents.

You may not know it but you are my side kick, my helper, one of my best friends. Days when you are out of the house with your dad I am a bit lost. You are an inspiration to me. I have seen in very few people the conviction that I see in you to always do what is right. The decisions I watch you make on a daily basis show me that you will be such a precious man and a willing soul for our Father to shape and mold and use.

As much as it makes my heart physically ache to watch you grow from year to year. I am so excited to see your life unfold. Keep pressing on my sweet son, for your life is blessed.

I Love You

What a wonderful son you are. It is great to hear you walking in the truth and living by God's word.

Happy Birthday to your son. How wonderful he seems. I almost cried when I read your post, I have a 5yo son, my oldest, and it is scary and exciting to think that he is growing older. He is so kind hearted and a helper, I don't know what I'd do without him. Anyway, I hope your family had a great day on your son's b-day!

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
