Happy Birthday Blake!

Today a very special young man in my family is turning 16!  Meet my nephew, Blake.  He's a caring, talented, funny, humble, and most importantly... Godly guy.  To know him truly is to love him.  He lives his faith boldly, yet humbly...whether on the football field, in the halls of his school or with family and friends. He is well-respected by adults and peers alike, and adored by his family.   

Blakers, hope your day is tremendous and special in every way!!!  We love you and we're so very proud of the person you are.  We're looking forward to celebrating with you this weekend! 

Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. ~1 Timothy 4:12

What a fine tribute to this handsome young man! Truly, in this day and age, it is a real compliment to have said about him, what you as his aunt shared. Wishing him many more fulfilling years ahead.

Happy Birthday to Blake! How wonderful that at an age when so many young people are following after this world Blake has chosen to follow after Jesus... may God continue to guide and direct Him and use him mightily for His kingdom purposes!

Blessings!
