Six Lessons I’ve Learned from Christian's Life

1) True Happiness doesn’t come from health.

2) True Contentment doesn’t come from a cure.

3) True Peace doesn’t come from progress.

4) True Grace doesn’t come from growth charts.

5) True Wisdom doesn’t come from words spoken.

6) True Faith doesn’t come from favorable results.

Son, our God has used you to teach mommy that ALL these things come from Him. He is the giver of all spiritual blessings (Eph 1:3). Likewise, True Joy is found in Jesus alone. Because of Him, you are one of the best joys of my life!

Happy 6th Birthday Mama’s big boy!

I am amazed at the ways God uses to teach us these truths. Oh, to consider it all joy and to keep the joy in the forefront of our minds and hearts as we journey on in faith!
Happy birthday blessings!
