Happy 10th Birthday

Today is Daniel's birthday. Here are some of my favorite pictures of him!!

I can't believe that my "little boy" is 10! I know that this is selfish, but when I found out that I was pregnant with a boy I prayed that he would be affectionate. I wanted him to adore his mommy and to grow up and be a great husband someday! He has his bad moments, but for the most part this guy does adore his mommy and I really think that he will make a great husband someday, that is IF we let him get married! (just joking!)

Daniel's four biggest passions are fishing, building anything that requires using a hammer, playing paintball, and last but not least......playing with any child younger than himself. (Did I mention that he is going to be a great dad too?) Don't worry, I am not one of those moms that thinks her son is perfect! It just wouldn't be right though to post the negative stuff on his birthday, so I will continue with the good stuff!! He is really good at math. He is also a great athlete. His favorite sports are soccer, basketball, football, bowling, golf, and teasing his sisters.

I love this child SOOOOOO much. I can see such potential for this young man's life. I pray that the Lord gets a hold of his heart and that Daniel spends his life serving Christ.

Happy Birthday, Buddy! I love you!

You are such a sweet Mommy, Judith! God knew what he was doing when he entrusted you with 5 little people to love and nurture. I have a picture of Joshua and I peeking out of that same heart shape on the playground! That was way back when we were still dating!

Your comment really got me thinking. Thank you!!!
I have often wondered, if God "knew" what He was doing when He gave me each child. I have felt SO inadequate to be their mommy! When the first four were all six and under, I actually felt sorry for them to have to have me as their mommy! I have no doubt that God is incontrol of every situation, but I had doubted Him in this area. I must claim God's Word as TRUTH in the lives of my children too! Yes, God did KNOW what He was doing when He gave me my five precious children. I just hope that they don't grow up hating Him for it!!
