I can’t help but smile when I think about Nathan and how God has blessed our lives through him. Before he was born, we had all kinds of names we wanted to name our son, but the Lord kept bringing us back to “Nathan” – which means “Sent by God.” And he has certainly lived up to that name.
Nathan is a funny, quirky, strong, tender, talented, God-loving, family-loving, fun-loving, phlegmatic kind of guy. And we thank God that He “sent” Nathan to us!
Happy 13th birthday, Nate! We love you so much and are so very proud of you! As I hide these days in my heart, I look forward to all God will do in and through your life as you continue to grow in and through Him.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Love you, man!
