Happy Birthday Jackson

Jackson,
I can't believe that you are 8 years old today!!!  Wow!!  You have grown and changed sooo much!  You started the 2nd grade this year and completed a lot of your work before Christmas!  You are such a smart kid!  Your brother and your sister, even though they bug you a lot, love you very much and always have fun playing with you.  You and Wyatt especially love to pretend like you are Jedi's and fight with your light sabers.  And there isn't a video game out there that you can't play!  You have gotten so tall this year too.  You are almost as tall as I am!!! (Which Daddy says isn't really saying all that much...anyway...) You have become such a helper for mommy too.  You make the bed in the morning and get yourself dressed.  You take the big garbage can to the road for dad and even help mommy with the dishes, loading and unloading the dishwasher, though you DO think its fun to wash them in the sink!  You are a great reader too!  Wyatt and Mallory love for you to read them stories!  And you can play dominos with the best of us!  You love to be with your Gran-Gran on the farm...anywhere that he goes, YOU want to go.  You even call him and ask him if he has any work for you to do!!  And you love to spend the night with your Mia and Papa and go eat breakfast with Papa and his buddies on Saturday mornings!  You even share your Papa's love for golf and played in a tournament this past summer.  And you also learned how to drive a 4wheeler at the Davis' house!  But the best most important thing of all...this year you gave your heart to Jesus.  Out of everything you have done, and everything else you will do, you have already done the best thing by asking him into your heart.  I love to see you reading your Bible and taking it with you to church.

Mommy and Daddy love you so much!!  And we are so proud of you!!

What a precious boy! Hope Jackson had a great birthday.

I don't remember this blog...have you always had it? I've been checking your other blog for updates. I decided to click on your profile to look for an email address. I was planning to check on you! Then I found this blog. I'm sorry I overlooked it!

Looks like things have been busy around your place! Hope all is going well with you.

Blessings...

Happy Birthday, Jack! We're so excited about your party on Saturday...especially Uncle Ryan because you know how much he loves Chuck E Cheese! We are so grateful God has brought you into our lives. It is a blessing to invest in you and watch you grow up...and what an honor to stand with you at your baptism this year! We pray God continues to mold and shape you as a man after His own heart that follows Him regardless of the cost. We love you, love you, love you! You're our absolute favorite 8-year-old.

Love,
Uncle Ryan and Aunt Steph

Wow that was the best post I have read in a LONG time ASH. I got some serious chills (and still have them) when you talked about Jackson accepting Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour. My daughter has been asking questions since she was 5 and asking her Popa about heaven. Thats my dad and hes a baptist pastor. I know that she is still a bit young, but Im glad that she is already looking for answers. I cant wait until she does it.

So to you little guy,

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy BIrthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Jackson........
Happy Birthday to YOUOOOOOOOO!!

Love and Prayers,

Tim

P.S. If I didnt tell you, Carey and I did the Fireproof couples bible study and loved it!
