Jaku's birthday...



I did this page for him. It's his birthday present from me. We are having our birthdays this week. YEP> tomorrow I am turning the big 3-6. But you know what? I love getting older. I love my life's process. But for this ONE DAY in a year, Jaku is one whole year older than me. I am thankful that we have been spared another year. I am thankful for God's grace and love in our life. I am astounded to see the growth in Jaco as a husband, a father and a man of God.
Each year we take our "age" as the Psalm for the year. This year it's Psalm 36. What an awesome Word. It's my word of the week (message translation). The Amplified says: 5Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, extend to the skies, and Your faithfulness to the clouds. 6Your righteousness is like the mountains of God, Your judgments are like the great deep. O Lord, You preserve man and beast. 7How precious is Your steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge and put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. 8They relish and feast on the abundance of Your house; and You cause them to drink of the stream of Your pleasures. 9For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light do we see light. 10O continue Your loving-kindness to those who know You, Your righteousness (salvation) to the upright in heart. 11Let not the foot of pride overtake me, and let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.

So, happy birthday sweet friend, love, husband. I *big puffy heart* you.

What an awesome page. Happy birthdays to you both! I loved your idea of choosing a Psalm for the year. I plan to *steal* it and try it for my own self and family. Have a wonderful week...I'm sure they'll be a piece of cake or two involved. I hope so, anyway. =)
