A hope for my son on his third birthday


I hope you climb many trees.

I hope you grow strong and brave.

I hope you grow wiser than I.

I hope you find a good wife (like your mother).

I hope you learn humility better than I.

I hope you avoid the same mistakes that I’ve made throughout my life.

I hope you discover that unique characteristic that makes you so distinct.

I hope you grab hold of a passion that burns within you.

I hope you understand just how much your mother and I love you.

I hope you understand how much you mean and contribute to our family.

I pray that Jesus will lead you to worship him.

I pray that your heart would begin to look more like his.

I pray that your life would reflect him.

I love you, my son.
