We will also be celebrating our oldest son's birthday...he will be 28 (gasp!) on the 28th. This is a pic Zac took of us on his I-phone when he and Amy were visiting this past summer.
Zac's a great guy....there is no greater blessing (well, it's in the top 5) than to have the many prayers of this mother's heart answered. Those prayers started at the birth of her first born and has never stopped. I've heard it said that once you give birth you are never again alone in your thoughts. That has been so true for me. It has been so rewarding to see Zac grow to be the man of God that he is today. When he was 6 I began praying for his wife he would marry some day. When Zac brought Amy home to meet us 6 years ago, I felt like I already knew her--because I'd been praying for her all that time and because she was that close to everything I prayed for! Mostly I've prayed that Zac would love God with all his heart and would put Him first in his life. I know from experience that if you do that..everything else falls into place. And it has been true for Zac. Rough and difficult times come and go, but when you anchor your life in your faith, life steadies out again.
So we look forward to be able to celebrate with him.
Happy Birthday, Zac!!
