Today is Drew's 7th birthday.
Seven seems so old. He is really growing up right before our eyes.
The awesome privilege and responsiblity of raising this child has been something I've been thinking about lately. I am shaping a person. He is watching me, listening to the words I say, seeing how I interact with people. My every action is a lesson to him in how to behave, how to love. That is a huge responsibility. I thank God that he has equipped me to be a mother to Drew. That He chose me for Drew and Drew for me. That He has gifted me this miracle child who makes me want to be a better person, who has taught me more than I could ever hope to teach him.
Happy Birthday my sweet boy. I am so very proud of you. I know God has great plans for your life.
The words of this song from Sidewalk Prophets remind me of you:
Be strong in the Lord and,
Never give up hope,
You're going to do great things,
I already know,
God's got His hand on you so,
Don't live life in fear,
Forgive and forget,
But don't forget why you're here,
Take your time and pray,
These are the words I would say.
