Happy 11th Birthday to Jeremiah ... My Heart !!!

Well I have posted many things about my special 1st Child ... I have told you about his birth, his amazing heart for his brother and sisters, his growing relationship with the Lord, and how I love him as my son ... I thought this year I would tell you what a fabulous FRIEND I think he is ... Jeremiah is the boy who walks into a room and instantly makes the room brighter with his outgoing personality, funny sense of humor, and relaxed nature ... He is always cautious to make sure that no one is feeling left out and is quick to point out some one's strengths and not their weakness ... He is a loyal friend and will defend what is right ... Scripture tells us that there will be friends that "stick closer than a brother." ... I think Jeremiah is blessed to have many special friends in his life and I am especially thankful for Michael ... Michael and Jeremiah have a love for the Lord, family, and each other ... They are like brothers and we challenge them to look out for each other, hold each other accountable, and to always put Christ first ... Jeremiah, we love you and all that teach us in how to be a friend ... Happy 11th birthday !!! We are honored to be your parents !!!!

Hey buddy, thank you for all the prayers for me. For thinking about me when you pass by the red tree, for rooting for Texas Tech (even though you aren't a fan) and for knowing that God is big and can and will work a miracle in me! I can't wait to meet you one day.

Hope you have an awesome birthday! :)

I love you,

Happy Birthday, Jeremiah! What a great post. If I could pick Emma's future husband, he sounds pretty darn sweet.

PS. She turns 11 in May and would be so embarrassed if she knew I posted this. hee hee.

Happy Birthday Dude!! I have loved being able to be a big part of your life. I have loved watching you grow up to be a little man. AND I have loved beating you at gotcha most of the time because I know in a couple of years I won't be able to beat you. You are an amazing athlete and I can't wait to see you keep developing into a great basketball player. Always remember who gave you your amazing gifts and always put Him first. You are such a great friend and such a GREAT big brother. I love you so much!!!

Happy Birthday Jeremiah, you sound like such a great kid. I hope you know how much god loves you and how proud of you he is. Gwen we seem to parent alot alike, Astrud's two friends Emily and Jena are all Sisters in Christ. Actually just here recently Astrud has brought them both to Christ and this weekend we are having a True Love Waits ceremony and they are all involved. We are so proud of Astrud because we can't say that we brought anyone to Christ at 16 years old. Your Jeremiah has a true heart for god, you can tell by the things you say about him, and that is a reflection on you and your husband. You two are great parents and witnesses for God.

Love, Kristy

Happy Birthday, Jeremiah. My goodness, how time flies! I still remember when your mom and dad told us all (at their going away party, when Uncle Paul and Aunt Leigh Ann lived in military housing here) that "they" were pregnant with you; you truly are an instrument of God's love
