Dear Emmanuel, it’s your birthday today, yay! It’s been 5 years since you made your entrance into this world and boy you came in grand style. I remember how they put you in my arms. I remember seeing your face and thinking to myself ‘he’s so beautiful’. We named you Emmanuel to testify of God’s constant presence in our lives.
Happy birthday Emmanuel
Today you are 5-years old and I can already see the heart of God in you. I can see your heart of worship and surrender to God. Son, I want you to know that before you were born, God knew you and ordained you to divine purpose. You are an arrow in the Kingdom of God my child and you will live to impact your generation.
I see how you love me, your daddy and your siblings. I see how protective you are toward your younger sister in kindergarten. I see how you feel and react when I am ill or when I am tired. Your loving kindness amazes me. The other day you saw me cry and quickly came to wipe my tears.
Emmanuel, I love you, we love you dearly and pray that you prosper in every aspect as your soul prospers. I pray that you grow in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man. May you grow in health and strength to be a man after God’s own heart.
My papa, mommy made the plain cake just as you asked me to with lots of strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries just for you. I hope that you enjoy it as you share with your friends in kindergarten. Mommy is looking forward to many more years with you to see you grow into the God-fearing man of God, fulfilling the God-ordained purposed you were born to accomplish in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Happy 5th birthday my son, my love, my life!
