Happy First Birthday, My Precious Boy....



Oh be still my heart....my precious baby is turning one today. While it is still "Friday night" to me, the time is 12:21am, September 27th. There have been many preparations going on this week, for our impending birthday bash. We are all pitching in and doing something. The younger girls helped make the invitations, the oldest is making the cake, Daddy is frying up the "frog legs" aka chicken wings, Mommy is crying alot, and crying some more.

It breaks my heart to see my baby growing up so fast, but it gives me such joy to see his smile every morning and every night. God has been so good to me and my family. He has blessed me with 5 Wonderful, God fearing, Beautiful Children (with one awaiting my arrival in heaven). How can I be so selfish, so sad? This is a joyous day, but it pains me so. I just pray that my pain will ease with the smiles, giggles and joys of a birthday boy on his special day.

Heavenly Father, thank you for the precious gift of children. Thank you for my precious son. May he always know you, love you and never know a day without you. Lord strengthen me and fill my heart with joy, forgive me of my selfishness, for who am I that I should be sad over my son turning a year older, when You gave your precious SON's Life to save our souls. Praise you Lord for your mercy and love!! Praise to you, oh God, for giving us life, life eternal. Be with us all today, here in my home, on the road, all around the world, with my readers. May You be Glorified today and always! Amen.

Happy First Birthday My Precious Boy, My Son!!!!!!! Always know that you are loved!
