My son turns 5 tomorrow

Post by Gabriel » Sat Aug 15, 2015 8:38 am

We'll celebrate tomorrow, but I can never let the day go by without remembering and reflecting for a bit on the events surrounding his arrival. Praise God for a healthy 5 year old boy and a healthy and active wife. Was a dark time that God saw us through.

May God be praised for his goodness.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

So great to be reminded of what God has brought him through. This is a great thing.
