Oldest Gentle Giant- Happy Birthday!

You were not always a giant.
What a precious baby you were.
Living life with you two was more fun than we had ever had in our lives.
Thank you for blessing us to be called parents and for listening to us and for loving us.
Thank you precious oldest gentle giant for loving the Word of God.
Thank you for deciding to love Jesus because of who you saw Him to be and not just because we wanted you to love Him. Thank you for looking for Him and responding to Him.
Thank you most of all for not being ashamed to be passionate about Jesus. You see, I think that is hard for men to do. Maybe you guys think that it is just not cool to be excited or emotional about Jesus, but in my book that is how a true man of God should be.
I really do believe this bumper sticker that has been on your old bulletin board for years:
 And this:
So- Happy Birthday our oldest gentle giant.
We love you dearly and always will.

We still believe and lay our hope and trust in the One who inspired these words that were on your birth announcement so many years ago.

James 1:17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

Love you. Mom
