Birthday Boy

I think one of my first blog posts was of Eli's 5th birthday.
We were at a location that had a man dressed up in a dog costume.
Eli took one look at the man sized dog and fearfully told him to go away.
That was six years ago.
Funny how it feels like yesterday.
And yet, we have come a long way.
What a precious gift we have in this son.
Who loves to read as much as his Momma and Mim.
Who introduced our family to the sport of soccer.
Who adores his tiniest brother, happy to feed him and play with him.
His first name means "my God is Yahweh"
his second "Yahweh is God."
We have this deep desire for him to be a walking testimony to the name and character of God.
That wherever he goes, his life points
to the One who
happy birthday eli.
