Micah Turns 12
I can not honestly believe that I have a 12 year old - but on April 30 - just 12 short years ago - we began our venture of having children!! Our little Micah decided it was time to make his appearance VERY early in the morning and at 5 am my water broke and we were on our way!! We went into the hospital and just a few short (choke, choke) hours later - with my whole family and Joe's mom present (yes, he came quickly once things got going!!) he was born. It has been an adventure - yes, often, I wonder what God was thinking to give me all of these boys, but I am learning and I LOVE BOYS!!!!! What a blessing our Micah has been, and continues to be, he is tender and caring AND loves his little sister and brothers - sometimes I wonder what I would do without him ~ he is a great helper and a wonderful big brother. I see his tender spirit often and he is developing such a love for God - what a blessing - we couldn't ask for more. Happy Birthday my firstborn, I love you.
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
