A little boy

"A little boy is the only thing God can use to make a man."

Just thinking how thankful I am for my little boy today and praying that he is:

A man of character
A man of integrity
A man who seeks truth
A man of respect
A man after God's own heart
A man who loves his mama :)
A man of his word
A man of humility
A man of confidence
A man of purpose
A man of influence
A man of courage
A man of optimism

Oh Lord help me be the kind of mama Samuel needs so Ryan and I can raise him to be the man you created him to be. He is just a little boy, but we believe he is marked for greatness and we pray you use him mightily all the days of his life. As we lead and guide Samuel in word and example, cover our mistakes and shortcomings with your abundant grace. Lord mold his mind with your truth, nurture his body with your love and feed his spirit with your word. May we never take lightly the great responsibility and incredible privilege of raising our little boy to become a man.
