17 years old today. Here he is in his new knitted jumper when he was two years old, I think.
I always prayed for a little boy (or girl) with brown eyes, like his dad, and had to wait until Michaël was born. I was afraid that they would change color, but he is still our gorgeous brown-eyed boy today.
He received a prophetic word when he was dedicated to the Lord as a baby, that he would have a comforting heart towards those that are weak, rejected or despised. We have seen this manifested many times and I will never forget the day he stood up for a boy in the bus that got bullied. I was so proud. He is very musical, plays the mouth harmonica, drums, guitar and is teaching himself to play the piano.
I have to miss him now, for two years he is in Holland for Bible school but we have regular contact. Another huge blessing is that René's brother's family looks after him in the weekends so that comforts us too!
My heart just overflows with thankfulness to God!
I haven't been able to craft today as I have had visitors the whole afternoon, so I am posting a masculine birthday card which I haven't posted on my blog before, to suit the occasion.
Distress inks, Hero Art stamps - what else do you need?
Thanks for your sweet visits, I enjoy your company so much!!
