Happy Birthday, Nate!
Twenty one years ago, I became a mother for the first time. What a blessing motherhood has been to me. I have learned so much, and especially I have learned so much through this man who is my firstborn.
How is it possible that you give birth one day and the next day that baby is a man who is about to become a father himself? Time goes by so fast. Our lives are truly a vapor.
It is our job to faithfully raise, the children the Lord gives us, to adulthood. We want our children to be mature adults and faithful parents, themselves. They have to learn to rely on the Lord for guidance, just like we learned to do.
God is so faithful.
Nate is excited to be father and we are praying for him and Kayleigh that God will be their help and give them wisdom as parents.
Happy Birthday, son!
We love you!
