The Birthday Boy

"Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him."  Psalm 127:3

Dear Cavett,

As we sat in the church choir class room tonight waiting for our first children's choir rehearsal together, I was reminded of what you are to me.  Up on the wall was the previous Bible verse--Psalm 127:3.  It couldn't have been more true.  You are my gift from the Lord.  You bless me daily and remind me of what is truly important.  You make me a better person and encourage me in ways you don't even realize. 

The time that we shared tonight playing around with each other was dear and precious to me.  It was the best part of our whole celebratory weekend.  We don't get enough time like that these days, since you are now in school.  Your giggles are contagious.  Your dimple-a kiss from God.  I get lost in your deep brown eyes.  Your desire to see a project through to completion at any cost, I can totally relate to and empathize with you when it can't happen.  And, your zeal for life and curiosity is inspiring. 

I just can't believe it's been 6 years.  They have flown by and I am afraid the next several will only get faster and faster. 

I love you, my dear son. 


P.S.- Your Dad loves you too!
