Michael, you may never know the joy you have brought me. It seems only yesterday that I beheld my 1st born child. Days after bringing you home, I held you in my arms and tried to imagine what you'd be like in a one, ten, eighteen + years.
As a young mother, I prayed that God Our Father would keep me from making mistakes and keep you from the dangers of life. That He would shield you from the predators and make your life as one without pain. Well, the years have gone by so quickly. And Life has evolved in ways I never would have imagined as I looked upon your beautiful face that day.
We've had wonderful and exciting times and made it through challenges and tragedies that would have destroyed most. But the one constant factor in them all is that God has always been there.
I've learned over the years that God never promised we wouldn't make mistakes, but that all things would work together for the good, for those who love Him and who are the called according to His purpose; Or we'd never have pain, but that He is a Healing Balm that soothes it away.
He never said there'd be no dangers or the predators wouldn't be, but that no weapon formed against us would prosper and every tongue that rises against us would be refuted. That this is the heritage of God's people & that our righteousness is of Him. That He would be our hiding place, our protection from dangers seen and unseen. And He gives wisdom to those who seek it.
He's been faithful! He gave me you when the odds were against me. When I was never to have had a child of my own, the Heavens announced that a man child would be born from a barren womb and that he would be a gift from God. And so on this day, I rejoice that my gift celebrates another blessed year! My new prayer is that you walk in the knowledge of your purpose. That you will live on purpose and for HIS!
I pray that you will know Him in such a way that you present your body as a living sacrifice unto Him. That you will be ALL that He created you to be and that your days will be Blessed beyond what you ever could have imagined.
May this day be the first day of the very "Best" days of your life! Lovin' you always and forever,
