So I have this son…..

And he is now 16!  And he now has his driving permit!
And…


He is a Gift- from – God!
Matthew- Gift of God

It is easy to remember the birth of this special son… he arrived 13 (THIRTEEN) minutes after arriving at the Hospital!
He was a very quiet baby… always taking in the details around him.
We would place him in front of the large fish tank with his blanket and he would watch the fish for long periods of time.

Matthew has grown into a young man that has a quiet passion for the Lord..
He is sensitive, caring, helpful, unassuming, and is best buddies with his younger siblings.
He seems to sense the feelings of others, and acts upon the right thing to do.. rather than ignoring others and moving on.

Time, prayer, dedication and surrender will tell what The Lord has planned for Matthew.
I am so excited to see!

I love you Matthew, and I am so thankful the Lord placed you right where you are in our family.
You touch my heart in many ways, and I am so thankful to see the Lord working in your life more and more.

Happy 16th Birthday!

Sorry ,,, It is hard to find a picture that Sarah isn’t in.. she and Matthew hang out together!

    Happy 16th Birthday to your Matthew! What a handsome young man he is!

    That's such a special time when they can get their driver's permit.

    I am hoping he has a fantastic day!

    Love, Linda
