My oldest boy... very much an "all boy" boy.

My prayers for you, Daniel...

are really more about my lacks than yours.

Oh, that I would have more grace for you and in my dealings with you!

Being the oldest can be hard work.

John 1:16
And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.

Ephesians 2:8
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God...

Hey Daniel, Looks like you lost a tooth or two. Thinking of you! Love, Gammy Carol

Wow Rebecca. What a sweet post. Esp. the part that your prayers for him are for you. I am always praying for my kids, "help me to be the mom ____ needs." I so relate.

Being the oldest is hard work and I know I often feel like I put too much on my oldest but it is great preparation and training. I love your verses about grace. I need more and need to offer more. Thanks for the reminder.
We are anxiously waiting for a post on your newest addition. Remember His Peace, and plan as you are in labor and the JOY you will receive after. We are praying.
