Another Birthday = More Rejoicing

Dear Harrison,

Another year has gone by, and I continue to rejoice in the godly young man you are! Right from the very beginning, your Mom and I knew there was something special about you, and this has become more and more evident with each passing year.

I love our conversations when you are fully engaging your intellect. You challenge me to think more deeply and to see things from a new perspective.

I love that you have the same quirky sense of humor that I do, so that we can laugh at the same things.

I love how respectfully you treat your Mom, especially now that you practically tower over her!

I love watching you gently and lovingly interact with the kids at church, showing them a picture of a true man of God.

I love that you choose to make so many sacrifices to your schedule to be involved with ministries and activities at Calvary A/G.

I could go on and on and on….

     Bottom line: I love you!

Another year has passed, and you have given me so many more reasons to rejoice in the fact that you are my son. To paraphrase the words of our Heavenly Father, “This is my son, in whom I am well pleased!”

Happy 16th Birthday, Harrison,

Dad

    I love how you interact with my boys even though you are long past child’s play. You never roll your eyes or act like they are an imposition. Instead, you readily wrestle, play hide-n-seek, go on the path, cut trees, skateboard, play football, or whatever other quirky/crazy activity they get you involved in. Most importantly, you are an incredible example of how a godly man speaks, behaves, and thinks. Your Aunt loves you, too!
