Twenty-First Birthday

Twenty-one years ago today, our lives were changed forever.

B21, you broke us in as parents.  We had no idea what we were doing, but our hearts were all yours, from the very beginning.

And you've possessed our hearts ever since.

You have brought us such joy.  What a privilege to watch you grow from boy to man. You have traveled your own road and marched to your own drummer's beat the whole way.  Looking on, we have delighted in the uniqueness of you.

Your path continues to be a unique one.  What God has in store for the next twenty-one years, none of us know.

But we know He journeys with you on that road.

Happy Twenty-First Birthday, firstborn.  Trust Him always.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, 
and lean not on your own understanding.  
In all your ways acknowledge Him, 
and He will direct your path. 
Proverbs 3:5-6

Delight yourself in the Lord, 
and He will give you the desires of your heart.  
Psalm 37:4
