One of our family traditions that we have developed over the past couple of years has been to share what we love about the birthday child. As we went around the family this morning at breakfast and shared all the things we love about you, Jonas, there were two things that came up on repeat...
I love your hunger for adventure... your love of the outdoors... your little explorer heart which delights in tent-building, wood-whittling and living in the great outdoors. It must be the norskmann in you! I hope you will always keep that love of nature and appreciate what God has made... his world is beautiful, though it is broken.
Our prayer for you on your sixth birthday is this... that you will always take joy in all you do, but that you will find your ultimate joy in the Saviour, Jesus... that you will be a loyal friend to all you meet, but that you will know the truth, deep in your heart, that it is in Jesus you will find the greatest friend you'll ever have... that you will love adventure and exploring, but that your greatest adventure will walking in the Lord's ways and following his plans and purposes for you.
Jonas... we love you so very much. God bless you our boy. And happy birthday.
