My JOY turns 8 today ... Happy Birthday Elijah !!!



Each of my children have a symbol that I have given them that always reminds me of the beauty God created in them ... Jeremiah is my heart, Elijah is my joy, Emily is my light, Maggie is my hope, Joseph is my strength, and Daisy is my peace ... 

My "JOY" Elijah turns 8 today and he completely brings us all JOY w/ his smile, his zest for life and the fact that he can take the simplest act and turn it into an over the top of the moon experience ... When he smiles I simply melt and feel such honor to be his mother ... He never lacks for questions ... Mom can a rocket go faster than our car, what if a dinosour ate our house, is dad bigger than superman, would you rather eat a spider or eat boogers, mom, can the world's biggest man step on the world's smallest man, do you think God can lift the world in his hand, do you think cheetahs are faster than rabbits, and the list goes on and on each day ... HOW DOES HE THINK OF SO MANY THINGS TO ASK ???  

I pray Lord that you would continue to draw Elijah closer to you and show Him your greatness and love!

Happy Birthday Elijah. I just had to come tell you that I made my husband sit down and watch your husband's video last night and he is beginning to change his mind and be open to adoption. Yay!

Happy birthday, Elijah!

Gwen, I love how you have named the special "ingredient" that each child adds to your family. What a sweet way to make each child feel uniquely gifted and individually cherished. Still praying for your strength and peace to make it home soon.

Blessings,
Kathie

Love it! My sweet boy is 8 yrs old too, and they sound so much a like. I was cracking up because we get questions like this all the time. Tonight we actually googled the tallest man and the shortest man. :o)
