Happy Birhtday Isaiah!

8 years ago today we had our very first little boy, Isaiah. Peter and I were married for 3 months when we found out we were expecting.(we had discussed waiting 5 years to start a family HA glad we went with God's plan and not our own) I was scared.I didn't think I could have a baby, or be a mom. But the most amazing thing happened,with the Lord strengthening me I did both. Isaiah was born the day before our one year anniversary. We always tell him he was the best anniversary gift we ever received. Each day we have had with Isaiah has been a gift. He is really just an amazing kid. Peter and I have spent many an evening talking about him and all the wonderful things he does, the little man he is becoming, and how we could never imagine our lives without him. He is gifted with compassion and a love of people. He is unashamed of His love for God and what he has seen God do. He is a wonderful student and it is truly a joy to teach him.He is an amazing big brother, patient, and kind. He really is just a cool kid to hang out with. Isaiah's name means "God is Salvation" and that has been our prayer from the very start, that Isaiah would know the true and living God and that he would come to know salvation through Him.

The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.
My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion Pro 3:19-21

I am in awe that God chose me to be the mom of such a wonderful boy. He has enriched my life in ways I never could imagined. Happy Birthday Isaiah I love you!

This morning I made Isaiah (and Elijah) m&m pancakes, complete with candles.

Look how grown up he looks this morning! 8 years old!

Elijah was not going to miss out on the fun, so he too got pancakes with candles to blow out. Isaiah is such a good sport about sharing the spot light!

PS Today's song is for Isaiah. It's his favorite song so I thought I'd add it for him today.

And he's a true friend to my kids. Isaiah sees no boundries or limitations on other people, he is willing to be a friend to anyone!

You have a VERY special boy there and I am so excited to watch him grow into a MIGHTY MAN OF GOD and see how the Lord uses him in life!

Tell the little man I said HAPPY BIRTYHDAY!! And that we're blessed to have him as a friend!
