Who Would Have Ever Thought?

Who would have ever thought when we welcomed our son, our first child, Joshua, into our family 21 years ago today........



-That we would love our son more today than the day that we first laid our eyes on him. Who would have thought that would even be possible?
-That he would have almost 2 years of marriage under his belt. And that through his marriage he would teach us many things.....how to love, respect, have fun, stay strong through trials.....
-That he would have a child of his own to love. And that he would be such an amazing father to his son, our grandson.
-That he would have made it through the biggest storm in his life and come out a much stronger person, still trusting that God knows what's best and knowing that He holds everything in his hands. That he would never once curse God, but rather praise Him through the storm.....being an example of strength to his family and many others.
- That he and Rebecca would be farming with us.....and what a privelage and honor that would be. That the parent/child relationship that we had with him would slowly evolve into a strong friendship.
-That in watching our son grow we would understand more and more the breadth and length and depth and height of God's love. Eph. 3:18-19
-That our hearts could be so full!!!

HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY JOSHUA!
WE LOVE YOU!

We are very blessed to have you as our son.
Thank you for being you!
