A letter to my 5 year old

January 22, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Dear little Man,

Maybe we should have named you something that means I will trust in God, because he is faithful.  There have been so many things over your short lifetime that has caused us fear or worry, but led us to remember who is in control.  I would love to tell you about all of them someday.  So you will always remember that God is faithful! We struggled with fertility issues for three years while trying to have you.  You are our little miracle baby, and we feel so blessed to have you!  You bring us so much laughter, and happiness!  We prayed that you would be a mouthpiece for God before you were born (you are definitely a talker).  Daddy prayed you would be quirky (and you definitely are).  Most of all we prayed, and it has been a continual prayer, that you accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior!  It’s the most important decision you will ever make!

Here are some things about you I hope will never change after five years old:

  1. Your awe of God
  2. Your love of cuddles
  3.  Your love of talking
  4. Your love of American flags
  5. Your concern for your brother
  6. Your great friendship with your brother
  7. Your believe that ladies should go first
  8. Your faith that everything the Bible says is true
  9. Your way of saying things the way they are
  10. Your conviction on right and wrong
  11. Your love of music
  12. You’re unconditional love for your daddy and I
  13. You love for animals
  14. Your excitement over learning new things
  15. Your imagination
  16. Your love of books

 

I love you Elijah!

Love mommy
