16 years ago today

Once upon a time..... there was a girl, and a guy who looked like this.... ( he looks a bit nervous doesn't he?)

And then the girl looked like this...............

And then the girl did alot of this................................

And there was a beautiful baby boy

And they let me keep him........... although I am not sure WHY....  I don't look old enough... at all!

And we loved him.... and called him Evan.

We managed to keep him alive.....  and he learned to love music,

and eat cake,

and potatoes,

and he learned how to share....

But, he taught us how to smile........

And now, today.... he turned 16.

And I feel old.  *sigh*.....

Evan, I am humbled and grateful that God chose me to be your mom.  I was deeply in love with you before I even met you.  You made me smile when you did back flips in my belly.  Now, you make me smile with your quick wit, and contagious laugh.  I feel blessed to see glimpses of the man that God is growing you up to be.  My prayer for you, on this day of your birth..... would be that you never lose sight of your Lord.  I pray that you always stand firm on the Rock of your Salvation, and you heed the tender voice of the Holy Spirit.  God has great plans for your life.  I am excited to see how you fulfill His plans for you.  Remember, no matter where life takes you, or what it tries to throw at you, your God is bigger than it all.
I love you,


  1. This is SO beautiful!

    On another note altogether: Can't BELIEVE that is B!

  2. Thanks..... I need a tissue just THINKING about and on your "other" note.... I know, I look at those pictures sometimes and think... WHO ARE WE?

  3. This is beautiful - and a (belated) happy birthday do you both!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to your comments!
