birthday's & homemade cakes
Today is Rob's birthday. For the first time since he has joined the military, he is actually spending his birthday surrounded by loved ones. In the past, it made my heart ache to know he was spending it alone. His sister Diandra has been with him this last week. Rob was able to take the week off from work so that they could spend some real time together. sigh ~ I am smiling as I type this.
I love this photo of Rob and Diandra on his birthday. Diandra would get so excited over birthday's and I think you can see how tickled she is about Rob's. It is a tradition in our family to make homemade cakes and sometimes even from scratch. Those were the best!
Our Son Rob ~
Our son is a wonderful blessing, a treasure from above. He's laughter, warmth and special charm; He's thoughtfulness and love
Our son brings a special joy that comes from deep inside. And as he grows to manhood, he fills your heart with pride.
With every year that passes, he's more special than before. Through every stage, through every age, we love him even more.
No words can describe the warm memories, the pride and gratitude, too. That comes from having a son to love and to cherish…just like you!
Rob, We are so proud of you!
Romans 8:28 NIV
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
You are a child of God, His treasured possession. He created you in His own image. He chose the day for you to be born. He has a plan and a purpose for your life. Cherish your birthverse.
