Double Digits! Oh My!!

Dear Jacob,

How did it happen so quickly? Are you really ten? I can’t believe how fast time is flying by. Your sweet smile and quirky personality make our world go round. You keep us laughing with all your funny jokes and magic tricks that you try again and again. You have really buried your shyness this past year. Dramatic reading, a presentation on how to make ooey gooey slime, a letter to the parents at church, a magic show during the missions conference, and Revelation read at a good ol’ Bible believing church in the Grove prove that you are not a shy one anymore.

Yes! You are growing into a brave, handsome young man. Yet, you are still one of the most kind, caring, helpful boys we know. You go out of your way to make sure Jayla is happy and cared for. You share your toys with James, and you graciously let Jaden invade your room each night. And for that, we are all very grateful. You help around the house any time you are asked! But, I can always tell you are much more excited when you get to help Daddy on the farm. I don’t blame you for that! What an excellent sheep wrangler you have become.

All of these things show us that you are growing up. You are growing up!  We already see at the age of ten that you have the potential to prosper. Why? Because you seek God’s wisdom and guidance each and every day. You make it obvious that Proverbs has taught you so much. You know the books of the Bible and many verses have been learned and meditated on. You bow your head in prayer and thank your Father for the things that He has done. You see His blessings! You have a desire to show the fruit of the spirit. You lift up others when you see they are hurting. And, you ask God who He wants you to encourage in His name. You are already praying for your future wife. We know the Lord will take you far. Never stop seeking Him, son. Keep on His full armor! Your Heavenly Father loves you. And, so do we! Thank you for being who God has created you to be – a loving son, brother, grandson, friend, and nephew!
