My dear step-son turns 20 years old today. He had grown from a little boy in to a young man. I can remember when he started school in 3rd grade. We took his FIRST day school picture in front of our entertainment center. His head just reached the handles on the doors to the T.V.. Now he is almost 6 feet tall. We are all so proud of him. In our family we have a tradition of waking up the Birthday person on their birthday with a song and a cupcake. Above is a picture of the girls and the not so awake "Birthday Boy!" This was at 6:30 this mourning before daddy went to work. Reece went back to sleep and the girls each ate a cupcake. My in-laws are driving up for the day and meeting us at the mall. Scottlyn will be playing on the Grand Piano there from 1:00 -2:00. We will then go pick-up daddy at work then off to a late-lunch/ early Birthday dinner at the Birthday Boy's choice of restaurants.
I praise You for putting this young man in my life. Most important I thank You for allowing Him to return to live with us once more. Lord, would You please continue to draw him closer to You in all that he does. I pray that You will put new friends in his life that will lift him up and be a good influence on him. May You open the right door for him as he seeks to find a job in this area. Show him Your will that You have for him as far as collage goes. Lead him to the right collage in this area. May the transferring to the new collage be smooth for him.You are the all knowing one and know how long he will live here. Lord, bless our time we share together. May we make memories together that he will look back at and hold dear to his heart. What a blessing he is. I ask this all in Your sweet name. AMEN
