The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with JOY. Psalm 126:3 I can not believe it, but my baby is one-year-old today! I am brought to tears this morning, overwhelmed with thankfulness to the Lord for this precious little boy. When I say “precious” I mean it. He has brought our family so much joy, laughs and love I can’t put it into words. Luke is special. The Lord has ordained his steps (none of which he has yet taken) to be impactful and important. Luke brings JOY with him everywhere he goes. I pray a special ONE-YEAR-OLD birthday prayer over this sweet, little life today…Lord, THANK YOU for Luke. Thank you that you chose to bless our family with him! I pray Luke will grow in wisdom, stature and in favor with God and men (Luke 2:52). I pray he will grow to love You and Your word. I pray you would protect him from harm and that your goodness and love would follow him all his days (Psalm 23:6). I pray he and his older brother’s would grow to love eachother and be the best of friends. I pray Luke will have a love for learning, be a carrier of the Gospel and be successful in this life. I love him so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you Lord for Luke. I treasure every sweet moment with him this past year. In Christ’s name, AMEN.
