Josiah is 5 !!









Josiah is 5

Happy Birthday Josiah, WOW, a whole hand
Your growing up, before you know it, a young man

I love our sweet times on the edge of my bed
Each morning a hug, no words have to be said

A party, family, cake and balloons will surround
I think Joel will get the best..... a crown

You can do so much at five years of age
Climb trees, ride sheep and bikes, you are so brave

Toys, a BB gun and a Bible for you
Our prayer that soon, a heart made new

"Jehovah heals" is the meaning of your name
Go Forth!! tell the Good News, Jesus proclaim

As birthdays come and go, always Joel's twin
Your lives bound together, beginning to end

I love you so much, a blessing you are
Joel and Josiah, so dear to my heart!

We had a great time celebrating Josiah's 5th birthday and remembering our sweet Joel! Josiah opened a gift that I got for Joel, it was in the picture above, one of the Willow Tree keepsakes, it is a little boy holding a balloon that says "Birthday Boy." Josiah requested our all time birthday meal....hamburgers, hot dogs, chips. He wanted cup cakes and sugar cookies, so Anna took care of all that. We found a cookie cutter that was a hand since he is a whole hand old!! Jeremiah, Hosanna, Josiah and Mercy each had 5 balloons that they sent up to Joel....once again like last years picture sending the balloons up, Josiah looks on with wonder and curiosity!!

Thank you Lord for Joel and Josiah, what a blessing you are to us!!!!!

Your mommy

Happy birthday Josiah! I was thinking of you and your brother Joel when I woke up this morning. Today is my son Derek's birthday too. He is 7. We are making sundaes later and having them for dinner! We will be thinking of you when he blows out his candle and hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday Josiah! 5 is fun. Your presents look to pretty to open, but I'm sure you didn't have a problem with that. :o) My daughter turns 4 on Monday, but we are having a birthday party for her tomorrow. She is so excited. Hope you had a great day.

Happy Birthday Josiah!

Is that a Special Forces shirt he's wearing?!?! YaHooo! Jeremy just followed some of those incredible soldiers around the border of Iraq and Iran a few days ago, filming what they did. Very interesting. . .lots of interesting stories to hear!
