Have you ever wanted to cry at your own party? My son, Jake, turned a ‘new’ year today. It’s hard for me to wrap my head around having a 10 year old. This evening was a pleasant reminder of how young my son actually is. I could attribute it to too much sugar or lack of sleep, but honestly, it’s a simple fact my son is growing and learning to express his emotions more each and every day. Will I keep this photo tucked away? Essentially, all of us can have a ‘bad’ day, however, is blowing out 10 candles a reason to also want to cry? There may be a day where he looks back and comments on One candle being left. My hope is that he sees the One who lit his life from the very beginning. Friends may come and go, and different seasons bring about new interests and experiences. But One thing is certain, and that is His love will forever be etched in His heart. For His birthdays are endless and His calendar is not ours. Happy Birthday to my son, Jake. May he always remember the One true constant candle in his life🔥
Thank You Lord for being our One and True Light. May we be thankful for Your Faithfulness.
