Today is Jared's birthday. He is seven years old. He is my sixth child, my third son. I love that today we can celebrate life. You see, it is also the anniversary of Roe vs Wade that legalized abortion to be done throughout a woman's entire pregnancy. That means the day or minute before a baby is due to be delivered it is legal to kill that baby. How can this be? May God forgive us and cleanse our land of such sin. Jared was sovereignly chosen by God to be born on this day. He is a perfect example of how true it is that children are a blessing from God.
Jared has always been a true delight to our family. He is constantly smiling, has a sweet disposition, is obedient and respectful to his parents, and has a heart after God, a love for His Word, and is always ready to pray and lift his hands up in worship and in song to our Heavenly Father. I praise God for you, Jared, and love you more than words can say. I am so excited to see you reading. You are excellent at giving speeches, playing chess and tennis. I love being your mother and pray that God will bless you beyond your wildest dreams this year. May He bring you into an even closer walk with Him.
Here is a slide show that my daughter Destiny made of Jared.
