Happy happy birthday, Jeremiah!

You're three years old now, JJ! Yay!!

You bring delight to everyone who knows you. A man of few words, your shaggy hair and assertive expressions say it for you.

You don't know it now, but we begged God for you for a long time... my pregnancy with you followed a dark year of loss and grief, and we would not be the same without you. You bring a bright joy to our family, as I'm sure you well know how much your older brothers and sisters adore you.

Not one to keep all that love to yourself, you shower your baby sister Keanna with all the affection and attention you can.  And as my enormous belly has grown with your "other baby sister," my belly gets much of that sweet JJ love too!

We love you, Jeremiah, and we thank God for you. As you grow older, we pray that you hold on to your sweetness and joy and that you know how very cherished you are... not just by your family and friends, but by the awesome God who created you and sent His Son to die for you, that through faith you might have eternal life! Tomorrow we celebrate His rising from the grave, and we pray that for you, too -- that you would trust in Him and have life!

Happy, happy birthday, sweet son! We love you!
