Big Birthday Boy

My Big Boy turned 6 last weekend. Where does the time go? When I look at how tall he has grown it is difficult to remember back to the time when he was a baby. I am learning again with Abigail to make the most of those precious moments when they are small…It does not last long. As parents, we have the great honour and task of teaching our children to live by the Word so that when they are old they will not depart from it. I know Mark & I have not got it all right but I pray that our lives do model to our children by word and action that Jesus comes first in this family. We had a wonderful weekend celebrating his Birthday. He chose to spend a day with his best friend Jona. We packed Saturday full with lunch out, bowling and then swimming & ice-cream, since it was a lovely warm day. On Sunday (his actual Birthday) church was followed by a meeting of our cell group and then we all sang and shared his cake. By Sunday evening a very tired boy told me he had had “ a wonderful weekend”. There is more to come…several of his presents are still on the way from England!!
