My little boy turns four on February 2nd. He is growing up way too fast. He’s riding his bike without training wheels, keeping a good beat with drumsticks (which could be anything he might have in his hand), and learning quickly how to speak Tagalog, among other things.
But more important than all of those things is he has a tender heart. He loves to, pray, read his Bible (or have it read to him), sing and worship the Lord. Many times when we sit down to eat I will ask either him or Avalynn to ask the blessing, which can be quite cute and often entertaining. The other day he surprised his mom and I by saying “…and God I want the Holy Ghost.” Needless to say “mom” and I were pretty choked up.
3 John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
I truly want this verse to become my prayer of thanksgiving as my children grow into what God wants them to be.
Happy birthday, Carter D!
