Who will you be in 30 years because of who I am today my little ones? I want your hearts to overflow...
My son, will know you are strong and courageous, that you are daring and bold, and able to carry the weight of life high on your shoulders, blessing in abundance your wife and children? I want you to go forth in confidence, to see the battles that rage all around us, and I want you to know my son, that you are able! Not just capable, but mightily equipped, mightily able, to lead, to rescue, to pursue, to take risks, and to whole-heartedly accomplish. I want the words strong and courageous to be a seal over your heart, long before the world, culture, the media, or any person tries to tell you anything else. I want "mightily equipped" to be sealed up tight in the house of your heart. Will you be that confidant and godly man I know God wants for you in 30 years because of who I am today?
My darling daughter, will you know you are beautiful from the inside out? I began saying it the day you were born, that you are beautiful my sweetheart, so that your life will be colored by these words. But I don't only speak of beauty in sight, but beauty because of who God made you. I want you to always hear this, so there is no doubt in your mind. I want these words to be a seal over your heart, long before the world, culture, the media, or any boy tries to tell you anything. I want "beautiful", the right kind of "beautiful" to be sealed up tight in the house of your heart. Will you know that are qualified and able to pursue and to accomplish that which you set your mind to? Will you know that you are a treasure, that you are worthy, that you hold gifts and talents that will praise God our Father and bless your husband and children? Will you be that woman who loves and serves Jesus and finds her identity in him in 30 years because of who I am today?
May the kind of Mom I am today wildly impact the world through the hearts of you both, my children. May who I am today point you to loving Jesus, loving people, understanding grace, and living the Gospel in your every day life.
I love you, my dear ones.
