Happy Birthday

When God created man he said that it was "very good". I'd like to second that!!

I've been asking Sean quite often these days, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I think it's beginning to bug him. I'm in no way implying that he isn't mature or not doing what he should be. It is only that when I look at him I see an amazing, gifted, intelligent leader and a man who continues to run toward the Lord year after year. He takes God's Word and seeks to apply it in specific and real ways to our relationships at home, in his classroom at school, and with his colleagues across the country. It's been amazing to watch God be glorified in this. I am excited to see what lies ahead in the years to come!

Sean was 23 when we got married and today he turns 35. In my mind I think he will be a perpetual 27ish (though I realize that it would be impossible for us to have seven children at that age). Believe it or not, he is still full of that much energy and vision.

Happy Birthday, Sean!! I love you, best friend.
