What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

My Favorite Day

32 years ago, two pound squaloring boy followed on the heel of two pound "big brother" while Plans were set into motion.
The beginning of a changed world.

Mattie~ you are a world changer.

Each day of your life has been lived according to God's purpose for you and you are bringing glory to His name.

In your arms, you hold power. The power to raise up an army to call upon God's name. Three soldiers you lead and direct, yet with the compassion and gentleness of your own Father.

God has priviledged me to be recipient of your tenderness, to shine at your many successes, to lean on your strength, to look toward you for direction, to trust in your wisdom...to witness and share your life in a way no other can.

Every day of our walk together has been one of joy. Every day that you have lived, even before I met you I count joy-because it was those days that led you to me. And every day left that we have together, I joyfully look forward to, knowing that each day with you is MY gift.

This day, those 32 years past is my favorite day. Because on that day, even while I was yet unborn, a most special gift was given to the world, and to me.


Four hearts beat at home for you.
Eight eyes look up to you.
Forty fingers are eager to do your bidding.
Countless prayers are given in Thanksgiving for you.

Live your life Mattie, and live it well. You are His glory and mine.

Happy Birthday, my love
