Happy 9th Birthday to One Sweet Boy!

Dear Jacob,

Has it really been nine years since you stole my heart? Yes! Nine years have come and gone. But you, my dear, have made the past nine years unforgettable.  You make my job as a mommy so simple yet rewarding all at the same time. I have learned so much from you, my first-born son!

ImageWhat has your humble walk with the Lord taught not only me but so many others?

  • Putting God first is all that matters.
  • Loving others unconditionally is the only way to love.
  • A willing giver makes a cheerful giver.
  • Being a birdwatcher is very healing.
  • Living debt free is the best way!
  • The Bible is the most important and exciting book to read!
  • Memorizing scripture knits our hearts oh so close together.
  • And last but not least, the small stuff really doesn’t matter!


Yes, in 9 short years, you have taught me a lifetime worth of lessons! And for that, I am thankful that God let you be the first one to call me Mommy.  Your love for our Savior and others shines through more every day.  Thank you for being such a godly boy. You make your father and me so very proud. We gratefully give the one above all the credit!  I can’t wait to see what the next nine years hold for you, my dear son. I know you will teach us more each day!

Love Always,
