‘I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.’ (1 Samuel 1:27 NIV)

Today, my firstborn turns Twenty-two years old. Here is the deal: His birthday is my birthday too. His birth made him a living, breathing earthling; my birth was into Motherhood, Dale’s into Fatherhood. Everything he did as a “first” was also a first for Dale and me – many firsts with his brothers too. We have made a lot of first mistakes together. We have made a lot of first do-overs together. We have many first celebrations, and first disasters, first breaking of wooden spoons on his backside, first washing his mouth out with soap, first little league victories, first National Championship … so much more.
And, the life lessons that he has received from his Father God have given depth to his soul; likewise, each has expanded our insight and our growth as parents and as a family.
My prayer for him on this honored day is that he looks back to see his Spirit stands stronger against the winds of life today. As each year marker falls, he takes a breath to find his faith has found reason to deepen due to listening to the Voice that is greater than his own; and he is compelled to seek it’s Source all the more.
What about you Sweetsoul? Can your growth with Christ in the past year be measured? What can you do today to stir yourself to fall so passionately in love with your Savior that His work in your life blows your socks off? Beloved, He wants to – simply ask.
