Zeke and his buddy Sam were born eight days apart, so for the past couple of years, we've combined forces to celebrate these two little dudes. Yesterday's celebration was so much fun for all of us, but I as I reviewed my pictures from the event, I felt a nudge in my spirit to confer blessing to these two little ones who will one day grow up to be great men of God. So in that spirit...
Sam and Zeke: May you be oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. (Isaiah 61:3)
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus (Romans 15:5)
May the joy of the Lord be your strength. (Nehemiah 8:10)
May your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16)
May you live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble (I Peter 3:8)
May you rejoice in the Lord always...
