Birthdays

Today in our family we are celebrating two birthdays, the first one is most important.. Ephrim's. My little boy, the first baby I delivered naturally, a testing of my faith and trust in God, and born on my ninth Christian Birthday. So today is a celebration of his life, and mine, because with out Jesus, this family wouldn't be. Thank you Lord for saving my life, and creating Ephrim's.


I listened to this song during my labor and delivery with Ephrim. The Lord just kept on telling me to breath, everytime I needed it.

There really isn't enough that I can say about my boy, I look back and miss every little cuddle, wish I could have every new experience all over, and know that it will never be the same. I look forward and know that there are many more experiences to come. I have a hope for his future. Ephrim has been God's ministering tool in my life. He has softened me, and given me a mothers heart. Thank you Father for this blessing.

Psalm 127: 3 "Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate."
