Happy Birthday Stephen!

Stephen today is your birthday. It seems time has passed by so quickly. It seemed as though you were only a baby, then a child, but today you are a man--legally! God has blessed me with these wonderful 18 years with you and I pray that He will bless me with many, many more! You are so special!

"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy." 1 Peter 2:9-10

You are chosen by God! His mercy is on your life and you have His favor--Always live your life for His glory!

Blessings in Christ--

What a blessing our children are. Happy Birthday Stephen, and congratulations to you, Shonda, for training Him in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Claiming His promises for both of you! Love annie
