My Child of Promise

To you, my child of promise, my worshipping warrior, and the joy of my heart:

Tonight as I laid in bed, the Lord gave me a vision of you as a young man. You are tall and striking. You eyes will make your wife's heart melt like wax and your smile will make her heart flutter. What is most striking though is your caring spirit. You look at people and see them for who they are; you care deeply and from the heart. You have the gift of discernment and use it to minister to people where they need it most. A smile comes easily to your face and even as I type this, I can hear you giggle in your sleep in the other room. Your joy is a tree of life to those around you and those close to you eat of its rich fruit. I don't know all that God has for you, little one, but I see just a glimpse of who you will become-a mighty man of character for His glory. I am humbled that God has entrusted me to be your mama. What a fun journey we have ahead...

"He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly and to love kindness and mercy and to humble yourself and walk humby with your God?" Micah 6:8
I love you through and through, always and forever, no matter what.
