Happy Birthday Jes!!!

24 years ago this morning the Lord blest Alan and I with a wonderful gift in Jesse. Jes, you have been a true gift from God and it is such an honor to be your Mom and to have had you live in our home for a little while. Now, you make your home with your darling wife and begin a home and family of your own.

1.5 hours after the first labor twinge you where here. Your sister was oh so excited for you to finally be here but not nearly as much as we were. We had trusted God to give us another child and waited upon Him to do that in His timing and He gave us you.

As a little boy you preached on the back porch, and the extent of your sermons were Hallelujah, Amen. You preached to Nikki many times, and to her Barbie Dolls or to the neighbors that could hear you. Now, your sermons have more content and your listeners have expanded.

As a young man you were very protective of me and Nikki. You always wanted to make sure that noone was hurting us or being mean to either of us in any situation. So like your Dad but yet so different and your own person. I see a lot more of Alan in you as you have become your own man some of your characteristics, and mannerisms but yet you are Jes.

Animals that ever lived in our house got to suffer the wrath of the yellow highlighter.I wonder if you will highlight your children. Beware Amy!!! You have always loved to eat meat and you were my child that loved chocolate as much as I ever had. When you went to purchase a toy you had the money but you always needed tax money.

I could not be more humbled or proud of you as you handle Gods word to deliver to Gods people and the lost. I love you more than life itself and I am always praying for you. Happy Birthday Son.

Love You
