HAPPY BIRTHDAY . . . TWO DAYS LATE

January 7, 1995 - a day we had hoped, waited and prayed would come for a very long time at last arrived. At nearly half-past four in the morning Mom gave birth to the little boy who would bring us all so much joy and laughter. With John carefully snuggled in Mom’s arms, Dad led the family in a very meaningful song of praise to God as we sang the Doxology together in the hospital room. After over seven years we had a baby again in our home!

Twelve years (and two days) have passed and still we are incredibly grateful for the gift of John. His love, laughter and little caring ways continually bless our family. It’s been a real joy and privilege to watch him grow up from a pudgy baby into a tall, lean young man of twelve with a heart for the things of the Lord. He hopes to pass Mom and I in height within the next year or two, but we shall have to see about that. :)

Happy Bithday, John!
