You are one today

My precious son,
I can’t believe a whole year has gone by. You are no longer my little baby boy, you are now my running, growling toddler. I sometimes miss my tiny little boy, but when I see whom you have developed into, I would never go back. You have grown so fast. Realizing this has made me want to slow down even more, to write down all you do, and to focus more on the quality time I spend with you. You my son are more precious to me than I can put into words. Do you know that besides your dad, you are the biggest blessing God has ever given to me? Everyday I thank Him for you and pray that I can love you more fully, the way He loves you. Here is my pray for you on your birthday:

May you above all else love God with your whole heart. May you always seek Him, seeing His beauty in all areas of your life. May your relationship with Him be the most important thing in your life and may everything else stem from that dependence on Him.
I pray that you see yourself how He sees you, perfect, beautiful, a masterpiece. I ask that you believe Him when he says that you were created in His image and that he formed you into who He wants you to be. You my child were created, specially design by the maker of heaven and earth, take Joy in that.
You have been blessed with such a sweet spirit and love for people; I pray that you let that grow in you and do not let it get destroyed by the things you will experience. May you love others with the same love that God has shown you.
May this next year of your life be blessed with many beautiful things.

Jones I want you to know you are my special boy. You will always have a place in my heart that no one else can fill. I love you so much!

Love forever,
Mommy

That was beautiful. Jones is so blessed to be part of a family where he will be nurtured spiritually as well as physically and emotionally. I wish every baby could have a family like that.
