It is with a joyful heart that we provide this post in honor of Jordan for his 19th birthday!
Happy birthday to you! It is a great blessing to see you walking in the truth. You have shown yourself to be a man of keen discernment and we are grateful to see God's sanctifying work alive within you. We are very blessed and honored to be your parents and our prayer is that God will use you in a great and mighty way for His kingdom purposes. We know that God has prepared good works for you to accomplish and ordained that you should walk in those works (Ephesians 2:10). The specific works are not just in the future, but include works that are now! Every act that is making manifest the reign of Christ is a good work and includes the treatment of your siblings, the service to those around you, the giving to others, and the discussions about the application of God's Word to every area of life. May this truth be a great source of encouragement and hope to you as you strive to live a life of faithful obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jordan, thank you for all that you contribute to the life and health of our family! Thank you for being a blessing to us all with your humor, your conversation, your willingness to work, and your desire to think through every situation biblically. May the Lord bless you with a very fruitful, productive year and may you be growing in Christ-like character day by day.
Happy birthday, Jordan! We love you very much!
