Jethro's 1st Birthday!

Wow, I have spent the last couple days in tears at various times. Tears of joy and thankfulness to my Father God for His wonderful faithfulness to us. I can't believe a year has gone by already.

We have a baby who is happy, adorable, content, adorable, engaging, adorable, playful, funny, and did I mention adorable? ;-) We have a beautiful house that is almost done, and we have been blessed with wonderful folks who were there when we needed them.

Yesterday, we had an open house to celebrate and at one point had over 80 people in our home! And, you could still move around. I think it's going to work well for family gatherings and hospitality. :-)

Here's a few pictures from the big day.

2d year MWSB students. They were here last year when Jethro was born. Although they didn't get to see him, they held a prayer vigil for him, and ministered to our family in a tremendous way. We were so thankful that they were able to celebrate this milestone with us.

The oldest and the youngest. A couple of handsome young men, I think. :-)

Just a little of the crowd of party goers.

Singing Happy Birthday. That would be a pepperochini in the baby's hand. He thought they were the bomb.

Me thinks the baby likes chocolate birthday cake! That would be a very Happy Birthday Boy!
Thank you, Lord for a wonderful year with this precious child! We give You praise for all that You have done!


  1. Praise God! I haven't commented very much but I've been praying for you, your family and especially Jethro during the past year and I cannot tell you how glad I am at this moment! Thank you God!

  2. Happy 1st Birthday Jethro!

    God Bless You!
