Happy 1st Birthday, Jackson Luke!!

This post has LOTS of pictures. It's a special post for a special little boy!

We had Jackson's party a few days ago, but today is his actual birthday. This little boy has brought such joy to our family over the past year. He has the cutest personality and the ability to warm your heart in an instant.

Jackson, Uncle Alex wrote this prayer just for you...

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the generations of faithful disciples that you have given to Jackson Luke as his heritage. I ask that as he becomes aware of Your presence, he would submit to you as Lord and follow you all the days of his life. I ask that you would bless Jackson in this life and that he would grow up into a mighty man of God. Thank you for your Word and the Life that it contains. I ask that as Jackson reads it, You would write it on his heart so that he would learn to fear you and obey your perfect will for his life. I ask that you would allow him to pass a heritage of faith on to his children and their children. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.

I'm catching up and I just read about your hsg. Glad that everything seemed to be ok. Sorry about the cramping, I had some too when I had mine.

I know what you mean about the loss of modesty, and I also used to dread the yearly pap smears. That transfer clamp has to be ten times as big as the normal pap smear speculum!
