My Boy is 5
He is sweet. He is brilliant. He is kind. He loves Jesus. He is Daddy's biggest fan, Juliana's student and Samantha's best friend. He owns a tender place in Mommy's heart. He is an absolute joy.
Without fail the kid's birthdays hit the bittersweet button of my heart. A day to commemorate that yet another year has slipped by and that I only get one chance to do this right. One chance to lay the proper foundation on impressionable minds. They are little still and I cherish the time that they are cozied in my nest, knowing that when I go to sleep they are tucked safely under my roof.
My birthday prayer for my boy is that he will continue to grow in the knowledge and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. That he will have an obedient heart, a discerning mind and a purpose to love others more than he loves himself. I pray that the Lord will continue to protect his innocence and his purity and that as his parents, Drake and I would pursue righteousness and wisdom to shape him into a Godly man.
Trent, you exceed everything I could have hoped for in a son. I love you so much it hurts. Happy 5th Birthday!
