What is your favorite Bible story: When the disciples are in their boat in the middle of the storm and they look up to see Jesus walking to them on the water. I love the miracle of that, being able to walk on water. It's impossible, but He's Jesus so He can totally do that. Then Peter tries and starts to be able to but sinks. It teaches me when life gets hard or scary like a storm, or even if it's all good, I should never take my eyes off Jesus. He's the only way to stay safe and not sink.
What's your favorite sword (Bible verse): Hebrews 4:12, For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any double edged sword!
Dear Jefferson, Nine! Nine amazing years watching you grow and mature. I feel so honored God has blessed us with you as our son! You are so steady and loyal, composed and thoughtful.
You are slow to anger, you are patient, you are selfless and have the biggest sweet tooth of anyone! You hate broccoli and seafood but will eat your weight in raw green beans and chicken nuggets. You think a lot; I can see your mind constantly whirring with solutions, inventions, and ideas, but you rarely share your mind freely. When you do we are amazed at your thoughts and insight. You are brilliant and we've come to really appreciate your wisdom. You love Jesus and your family fiercely. You love science and studying the world around you.
You love life and find something unique and amazing about the tiniest things around you from the patterns on a dragonfly wing to things you see under a microscope. You have the best humor with amazingly timed dry wit and you have no concept of organization. You hate to read but you're starting to change that opinion as you've reached for more and more books allowing yourself to get lost in the pages of new worlds to discover. You love fireworks and lightening bugs, Christmas lights and playing in the ocean. You are an incredible teacher and protector. I can see a million ways God can use the amazing man He's created you to be and I'm honored to have a front row seat.
I pray this last year of your single digits will be blessed beyond what you could ask or imagine. I pray you continue to grow in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man. We love you so much and respect the man you are becoming. We are so proud of you, Cap!
Happy 9th birthday Jefferson!
