Happy Birthday Josh!

March 3, 2019

Joshua,

Happy 31st Birthday!

We love you so much!

You are a wise son who makes his father glad. You are a good husband to Anna and a good father to your children. 

God is doing a great work in your life and is restoring your relationships. Christianity is about Christ offering each one of us forgiveness, though we don’t deserve it. We truly believe your greatest days are ahead.

You have a heart for the widows and fatherless. We pray God will bless you as you continue to seek Him and be led by His Holy Spirit.

We appreciate your work ethic and your diligence with what God has set before you. 

You set a good example as you apply yourself diligently to your work and to the many other responsibilities that you carry, to be a blessing and provide for your family.

You are a faithful steward of what God has given to you (talents, resources, money, time) and we are thankful for how you look for ways to invest into others lives by giving of yourself and your time.

You are an energy giver. 

You are good at making others feel included and genuinely cared about.

We’re so thankful that you seek God for wisdom as you read your Bible and make that a priority in your daily life.

We are grateful that you desire to be a pure man in today’s world. 

We are so happy that you enjoy doing fun and creative things together with your family and you are not afraid to get tired and dirty as you work hard on a needed project. You do a good job remaining cheerful and being diligent.

It’s a joy to see you lead by example with a humble servant’s heart, and being willing to share what God & others have taught you. 

We love many things about you, Josh. We especially appreciate that you honor God, you honor Mom & Dad, and you love and enjoy hanging out with your family.

You are a thoughtful and sensitive man, a caring brother to your siblings and we are so blessed that you are our son! 

Isa 53:6  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 

Isa 1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. 

With much love,

Momma & Daddy 

Proverbs 3:5-7

To My Dearest Michelle,

      You are the sweetest wife any guy could ever have. You are beautiful inside and out. Words cannot fully express how deeply I love you!

     You are such a great mother & grandmother. You are so sensitive to others and have such a heart to encourage those around you and point them to Jesus. 

     You are my best friend. We have been through a lot together with your parents and my dad passing away, Josie being born very premature, Jubilee being stillborn & counseling our kids through the teenage years.

      God has been faithful to carry us through the hard times, to draw us close together and to provide for our growing family.

     You are the greatest blessing in my life next to Jesus forgiving my sins and giving us eternal life.

     Thank you for birthing all 19 of our kids and being such a virtuous wife and mother. Thank you for opening up our home to Tyler, he is a Joy!

     Thank you for loving me in spite of the times I have wrong responses or wrong attitudes. You are a precious ruby. 

     It is hard to believe this year we will celebrate 35 years of marriage, I am looking forward to the next 35 years with you!

I love you, Jim Bob
