This month my little J-man celebrated his 2nd year of life! Happy Birthday, sweet guy!
A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to stop by his place and drop off a few gifts to him. My grandparents and Bart's mom sent some very thoughtful gifts for us to deliver to him. We love that our family considers him part of "the family", not just a kiddo that was in and out of our lives or a child that we "babysat". He is family. Even after he has returned home.
The visit was a very sweet time. He has, of course, grown into the cutest little man! All the gifts were a hit! "Cars" themed gifts from my grandparents, cute outfits and a Sesame Street puzzle from "Nana", and then farm-themed legos from us. Of all this...the boxes were the most fun to play with after all the gifts were opened. Not too surprising, right! ;)
J's mom shared with me that the clothes will be perfect for him to wear to church. Did you catch that? They are now members of a CHURCH! They attend every Sunday for service and then Wednesday for Bible study and are very involved on top of that with other events. Mom says that she learns something from the sermon every week. We continue to pray for them every night that He would continue to radically change their lives and bring them Life through Christ.
Thank you, Lord, for working in the lives of those we love so dearly.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
