We had a special Future Disciples service honoring the babies born in 2011 at our church a few weeks ago. They do this once a year for all the babies born the year before. The parents have a chance to write something to their child that is read to everyone. I wanted to share what we wrote for baby J.
J, you are the perfect addition to our family. We love you so much already. It’s amazing to think about how much more we will love you as you grow. You gave us a great Christmas present when you started to walk a couple of days before Christmas. You surprise us and make us proud on a regular basis. We love seeing all the new things you can do, and how you really concentrate to learn and understand something. You are the happiest little boy! We love to hear you laugh many times every day. We are so blessed. God answered our prayers before you were even born by keeping you safe and healthy. We pray that you will always see us walking in Faith and setting the best example possible for you, and by that example you may know God and love Him with all of your heart.
