We Have a Birthday Around Here!

Today is a big day at our house b/c it is Bigger Brother's birthday!!!

We were blessed 11 years ago today with our very first son, and he has kept us hoppin' ever since! He is one of the several joys in our life, which wouldn't be complete without him!

Bigger Brother blesses us in so many ways. He is smart as a whip and already works very independently on his schoolwork. He can put just about anything together and makes a fabulous handyman around this house!

He loves to fish . . . . . . .

He also loves to hunt and even put some meat in the freezer again this year. (I guess you guys dont' want to see a picture of that, though. . . . . .)

He has proven to be a great goalie for the soccer team!

Bigger Brother is a hard worker and when given a task, works at it diligently and thoroughly! He can hoe and plant a garden, shovel rock, help mix concrete, and still mop the floor better than me! :-)

What blesses us most, though, is to see how the Lord is working on his heart. He has always been sensitive to others' feelings and kind to others. But I am seeing a sensitivity to spiritual things that I am trusting is the work of the Holy Spirit. He has a strong mind for the Scriptures, and I see a boldness to share Christ that I wish I had!

Whether in Central America or the US, he doesn't mind passing out tracts and sharing the love of Christ. To God be the glory.
We are proud of Bigger Brother and look forward to what God has in store for him. We are blessed to be his parents and thankful to the Lord that He saw fit to place Bigger Brother in our family for these fleeting years of training and stewardship.
In the Heart of our Home,
