In life, God blesses us with many things. Sometimes it’s a great job, lots of money, a smokin’ hot spouse, lots of friends, great health, the list goes on. Highest on that list is the opportunity to gain salvation. A close second to that, is the opportunity to have a child. It is a gift that is indescribable. Those who would take it for granted are fools. A year ago, Heather and I were given this ultimate blessing. It has brought me the greatest happiness, melted my heart, and made the most rotten days good again. This past year has been filled with laughter, sadness, anger, frustration, pride, joy but most of all, love. I can’t thank God enough for it, and I don’t know what I ever did to earn such a gift. It humbles me to my knees. Today we celebrate the birthday of one of the greatest blessings in my life, our wonderful son Owen.

Happy Birthday Little Boy!
