Birthdays + Tim Hawkins = Good Medicine


Colson bday

In honor of my youngest blessing’s tenth birthday I am offering you the gift of laughter today.

 Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)

A cheerful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Colson, our resident funny man, likes to laugh—belly laugh. His laugh makes us laugh.

Today I celebrate his thoughtfulness, optimism, strong work ethic, gentleness, self-control, love, faith, prayerfulness and ever-increasing muscle power. I celebrate him because God loves him and so do I. His sister and I celebrate his physical growth; Riley because she looks forward to acquiring his hand me down Star Wars and other screen print t-shirts and me because I look forward to snagging his St. Louis Cardinals jacket and Cardinals t-shirts.

I’m really not anxious for my kids to grow up but gaining Cardinals clothing does provide for the, “Every cloud has a silver lining.”

This birthday Colson scored the top gift of his wish list: A LEGO Star Wars Republic Gunship from me. He is happy!
