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.
