Happy Birthday Jackson!

With each year that passes, I am more and more amazed at what an amazing young man I am raising, and I assure you it has nothing to do with me. God has been so gracious to entrust this precious life to us! Jackson, you have such a precious and kind heart. You are a natural born leader. You are NEVER afraid to stand up for what you know is right. You always defend the cause of those weaker than you. You love your little brother (not that you don't still fight with him) and you have shed many tears in your prayers when you have seen him suffering. You are smart, funny, talented, and handsome. You are witty and hilarious and can make up a song on a moments notice. You are a friend to all. You have a heart for orphans and those less fortunate than you. You want to be a missionary when you grow up and you already are!

I am overcome with love and joy whenever I think of you! My prayer for you is that you will continue to grow more in love with Jesus and that you will continue to stay on the path he has planned for you, and if that takes you to Africa one day, then I am so good with that. I know you will continue to teach me and amaze me everyday in your commitment to God.

I love you soo much!
