Happy Birthday A.J.

Happy birthday my firstborn son! You're 10 today! I will use the words of Paul (Colossians 1:9-13)to express my prayer and desire for you.


From the day I met you I have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered you from the domain of darkness and transferred you to the kingdom of his beloved Son in whom you have redemption, the forgiveness of sins!

Congrats big guy! What a joy to watch you grow up in stature and grow in the Lord. Here is another verse for you to remember. (I Corinthians 2:9-10) “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"[b]— 10 but God has revealed it to us (Master AF Felich) by his Spirit.”

Happy Birthday A.J.,

May God’s Grace and Peace be upon you as you continue to grow in Grace and in the nurture and admonition of the Lord! Amen.

Children and Parents
Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), 3 “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” 4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
