Happy Birthday, Matthew! I wish I could surprise you and come to celebrate your birthday with you! What a wonderful surprise you gave me when you came to our house for the family time a couple weeks ago! Oh, I know you didn’t come just to see me but I seemed to be the only one who didn’t know you were coming! I have so many sweet memories of you when you were a child. Now you’re a man and a fine man! I’m adding another picture of you holding your youngest cousin! You’re the favorite cousin of Maddie and all the other cousins! I wish for you a great birthday today! I’m picturing you going out for dinner this evening with your parents and your other grandparents. Then celebrating with your friends. Whatever you do I wish for you a great, fantastic, fun, fabulous, terrific birthday!
Heavenly Father, thank You for Matthew! He’s a fine young man. Please watch over him as he drives, works and plays. Reveal Yourself to him in a very special way. He’s a good son, brother, grandson, cousin, nephew, friend and neighbor. I love Matthew so much and You love him even more!
