Today is my son’s birthday. Elijah would be three today and we are not only celebrating his birthday but celebrating his reunion with the one who cerated him. God has been so good to my family over the past three years. He has poured out his grace and his mercy on us in an unfathomable way. He has taught me through all of this how to be a better mom, how to love more, how to trust, how to exercise my faith and how to be kingdom focused. KINGDOM FOCUSED. These are two words we talk about almost daily. This is not our home and I’m thankful for that. If our eyes are always on eternity than nothing on this earth that we could possibly go through should defeat us. If God is for us, than what could possibly be against us? The Lord says, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world!” One day we will be reunited with Elijah, but until then we must carry on. We must work to advance the kingdom of God, we must fight the good fight, we must finish the race we have started so that we will here on that day, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” And on that day I will get to hold my sweet baby boy in my arms again. Happy Birthday sweet boy. I am so thankful for your life and all that God has accomplished through you in our hearts and in the hearts of others. You are forever loved and never forgotten.
Happy Birthday To My Little Man
