Happy High School Graduation, Jacob!

Dear Jacob,

How did we get here so quickly? Time flies faster than we ever want it to. I really cannot believe you graduated high school today.

I am so very proud of the young man you have become. You excelled in all of the college courses you took this year. You accomplished so much as a senior!

I do not take any of the credit for your success! Especially since, in normal mom brain fashion, I forgot to order your diploma cover and didn’t realize my mistake until 1:30 this morning. Thankfully, I had Pawpaw Tim’s, and you being able to use the cover from his high school graduation made your ceremony even more special! The Lord makes no mistakes.

You truly are a self learner and love learning new things. You are one of the smartest young adults that I know. I am thankful that the Lord allowed me to be a part of your educational journey. What an honor! Thank you for allowing me to be your teacher.

Take the knowledge the Lord has given you and do great things with it for Him. Don’t ever wander from the path He has created for you. His path is where His greatest blessings are.

I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for you. Of course, there will be tough times along the way. But some of God’s greatest blessings come after the storms pass. Don’t let the hard times defeat you. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and He will direct your paths.

You will always be my baby boy. There is something to be said about being the first born. No one can ever take your place. I love you so very much and am thankful for the mother/son relationship the Lord allows us to have. I am grateful for your kind, sensitive, and caring heart. I will love you forever and some more.

Love Always,

Mom 💙

John 13:7 – Jesus answered and said unto him, what I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
