Friday Foto.....

Meet Samuel David.....
but you can call him Sam.

Today is his 8th birthday.

He's funny and quirky and silly, 
but can be very serious and mature and asks more questions than you could ever possibly be able to answer.  He's an awesome big brother and he's my helper when I have all four of the kids.  He does his chores at home and plays hard and reads way beyond his grade level and still isn't too big to give his Pappy and Nannie hugs and kisses and even sit on her lap.....
but he has to be the one who thought of it!
(I think that comes from being a male....;-)

One of my favorite things about this precious boy is how much he loves Jesus.
We always pray before we eat and the kids take turns saying grace.
In the past little while,
Sam's prayers have become more "real".....
know what I mean?
He even prays that everything he does be done for God's glory!

Oh, be still my heart!

Here's why his Momma chose to name him Samuel.....

Thank you Lord, for this precious boy.....
who totally stole his Pappy and Nannie's hearts even before he entered the world!!!

Breathing in Grace,



  1. Happy Birthday to your sweet Sam. He and our youngest grand daughter are close in age. She was 8 last October. He sounds like one awesome little guy!

  2. Happy Birthday, dear Sam! Such a fine boy you are and such a joy to your grandparents! It is awesome to hear of your love for the Lord. I have a feeling your grandma will be sharing some wonderful things you do and accomplish as you grow this next year. You can never go wrong when you do things for God's Glory :)


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
