Scripture Day and Clayton's 1st Birthday

Well, today being the 15th of February it was Clayton's 1st Birthday. What a blessing he has been to this Gram and Popa. The joys he has brought to our lives is undescribable. I thank God for him and for allowing him to be in our family. My prayer is that God will save him at an early age,and keep a hedge about him that will not let Satan near him. That God will always keep Clayton close to him and that he will live his life for the Lord. And I think almost every family member on the Carr side is pryaing that God will call him to preach one day if HE chooses. I know that if God is going to fall him, he already is called and chosen for this task.

Our immediate family always has a meal together for everyone's birthday and of course a cake(or whatever dessert the birthdayee chooses) The Birthday person always get to pick the meal they want. Since Clayton could not pick this year we had finger foods for him. Our menu consited of chicken nuggets, french fries, tater tots and cheese sticks and cupcakes. Well, of course he got his own cupcake to do with as he chose. It was so cute and priceless. WE all - {all 6 of us} stood around the high chair while he inspected, played with, smeared on his face and ate his cupcake.

Well enough of Clayton, today is scripture day and my scripture was Ephyesians 4 :1-2:

"I, therefore the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation wherewith you are called. With all lowliness, and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love."

This has spoke volumes to me while trying to memorize this scripture.
1. I am to be a prisoner to the Lord, my life is not my own. It's God's
2. I need to walke, talk, act like I am a child of the Kind
3. I walk, talk, act worthy of being called a child of the King by being, humbe, meek and longsuffering and showing love to one another. (Ouch - I am prayiong thought that God would help me be more like HIM, and if I am to be more like HIM, I must be humbe, mild , patient and longsuffering and love one another)

I am learning more about the Bible, and God by memeorizing my scrioptures and it is helping me to fine tune my life for HIM. Want you join us as we learn Gods word together on the 1 and 15th of every month.

Because of Christ

I love the meal you made for clayton was so cute. I might have to start this tradition up with my girls, I think they would like it. I really enjoy learning scriptures like this, sometimes it helps to have the motivation. Pray that I do more for him, that I wold get out of the way so he could use me more. I will be praying for Clayton, I know God has some special things in store for these children. Love u!
