Birthday Post

Today is the day....I will keep my words short because there are lots of words about this day and what it brought us. So, for today, I'll share this scripture. My brother found it just before Kanyon turned 1 and he said it reminded him of Kanyon. I had been "looking" for a verse for him and this one is perfect for our Grand Kanyon. I'm working on a print of this for his room, but I'm having a hard time making it happen. Here it is:

May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.
May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.

May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
We will shout for joy when you are victorious
and will lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the LORD grant all your requests.

Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;
he answers him from his holy heaven
with the saving power of his right hand.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses;
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.

Psalm 20

Thank you for sharing that scripture. There are too many words and I really don't know where to start, so I'll just say Happy Birthday to one of our favorite little boys, and we love you, Kanyon, a lot.

Hi sweet friend...I can't believe two years have gone by since your angels were born. Happy birthday to Kanyon and Jayde. Such huge lessons learned from such tiny souls. I love you so much and you are never far from my mind. You are one of the strongest people I know, and God knew what he was doing to make you the mommy of those precious babies. To grieve so deeply...but with such grace, because we do not grieve as the world does. And to get up each day, not knowing what ongoing or new challenges you will face. And you continue to be an amazing friend...i can remember when our sweet Samuel was fighting in the NICU and you wrote and called, and encouraged me, in a way that only you could because you were on a similar road, though much more challenging. You are an inspiration and I'm so thankful and proud to call you friend.
I am constantly amazed at your comittment to regular blogging! I don't know how you do it all...you are supermin! And although we all love being to follow along in Kanyon's journey...what a sweet blessing it will be for him to have such a wonderful story to know...the story of his life...of a little boy with great purpose; a tiny warrior that has taught so much in such a short time. How exciting to see what God has in store for him!
I love the scripture...it's such a blessing to find verses that seem to have been written directly to speak to your heart. And what sweeter words to pray over our children than the truth of His word. We have done alot of printing scripture, for our boys and for gifts to family. You may already have something in mind, have someone working on it, or want to do it yourself. But I know that matt would be happy to design something if you need or want that.
I love you so much and can't wait until the next time the girls can all get together...I'm so tired of missing trips because I'm back iin the hospital, like I am now.
Give kanyon a smooch and hug from auntie tine! And give yourself one too! Love you!

tine said...

You are "superMOM", not supermin...whoever that is?!
I'm typing on our itouch so typos abound...sorry!
