~My Love Turns 20~

Jared Thomas,
 I am so thankful and blessed that you are in my life. May God bless you today on your 20th birthday, and every day for the rest of your life as you walk along the path that HE has set before you. I love you so very much, and I cannot thank the Lord enough for giving me the chance of a lifetime...meeting you at a Summer camp....and then HE gave me the courage to pour my heart out to you through the e-mails we sent back and forth, after our meeting one another so many months ago. *Aren't you glad that I'm an impatient person? lol* I am so proud of the man that you are today, and I'm anxious to stand alongside you, waiting to see you become the man God is going to mold you into in the years to come. Chase after your dreams, love, and don't let the world stop you, because with God ALL things are possible.  I cannot wait to see you later on today! 
With All My Love 

You've brought joy into my life....that never ceases.

{Jared & the Katana Samurai sword that I got him for his 20th birthday}
You make me want to reach for my dreams, and you've made me believe in me and the dreams which I want to run after...you make me see daily that with God and you by my side...they will one day come true when I let go of my fears and retreat into HIM.

"I've been waiting here for something to live and die for...as long as you stand by my side...in your shadow I can shine." - lyrics from 'In Your Shadow (I Can Shine) [Tokio Hotel]
