An Amazing Boy!

Sweetness seems to be pouring out of this face!
 Today is Ezekiel Craig's third birthday and I can't believe it! It was only yesterday that Dad and Mom called and for the first time in seven years excitedly announced, "It's a Boy!!!" I almost didn't believe them because three times before him I had heard, "It's a girl!!!" which of course I didn't mind because I had prayed for many years for more sisters and God had given them!
 This time it was a new little boy and we were all so very thankful for another healthy baby but we were also excited to have another little brother.
I love you so very much Zeke! You are my little snuggle bug and big helper!
May the Lord grow you into a great man of God that will reach thousands if not millions of lost souls with the special gift of Salvation! May you be as the prophet Ezekiel who prayed for God to raise up these dry bones.

1. The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, 2. And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. 3. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest. 4. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. 5. Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold I will cause breath to enter into you and ye shall live: 6. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put  breath in you, and ye shall know that I am the Lord. 7. So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. 8. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them above: and there was no breath in them. 9. Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breath upon these slain, that they may live.

~Ezekiel 37:1-9

I know that right now you are still young and even learning about our physical bones but I pray that one day God will use you in a mighty way to raise up the spiritually dead bones of this nation!
I love you sweetie! 
He is sooooo cute!
The excitement of a little boy just thrills my soul!
