Happy 3rd Birthday, Benjamin!!

It is really hard for me to fathom that our first born son is now three years old.  I remember his birth like it was yesterday.  I suppose it will always feel like this...at least that is what I am told.  Today we celebrate that the Lord blessed us three years ago with the birth of our Ben.  


A few hours after he was born.






Three years old.

Benjamin,

Your daddy and I are SO grateful that the Lord blessed us with you as a son.  Your energy and love for adventure keeps us on our toes.  You are still the most snugly child we know, and love it when you come to snuggle when you wake up before Lucy and Samuel.  It has been a joy to watch you recently with your love of letters and understanding of learning something new. 

Your name means "son of my right hand", which was a place of honor during the Old Testament times.  Our prayer for your is that your life would be one that brings honor to our Savior, Jesus.  May you know the amazing grace that was poured out for your sins by Jesus on the cross at Calvary, and live a life that seeks to tell others of this wonderful truth for His glory.

We love you, and look forward to what the next year with you brings.  Happy Birthday, Ben!!

Love,
Mommy & Daddy
