Zeke was so excited, he could hardly contain himself. The superhero poses were absolutely all he could do.
It was awesome- truly awesome.
He has a warrior boy-heart that Z-man.
And man but we have had to fight for our little warrior.
Like on the day he was born, I wrestled with my numb legs tingling from the epidural so that I could get out of bed and finally hold my baby- the one they had whisked away so quickly. After 5 hours, I finally won that battle.
Since then, we've battled fear and vegetables and all kinds of things and what we've learned is that the battle is the Lord's and in Him, we are strong.
It is the theme that keeps popping up over and over in life with Zeke: Do not fear, Jesus is strong.
We ARE winning. Even in this past year alone, Zeke has been baptized, learned to read, taken to geography, tried new things, enjoyed parties, recognized Asher as his best friend, and grown in so many ways.
I'm so grateful for these six years of Zeke. It's been such an amazing thing to watch this little boy grow in so many ways.
So happy birthday Ezekiel David!
You are strong and you are loved as you know Strength and you know Love.
