Happy Fifth Birthday Cody (2013)

Dear Cody,

IMG_2492This last year has been full of big changes for your little heart and I’m so proud of the way that you’ve handled them. In September you started going to pre-school two days a week, which was a huge change since you had never really been away from mommy and me. Then in January you began attending Northside’s Prep-K program everyday of the week! It took a few weeks to get used to this new schedule, but you’ve adjusted very well and you love your new teachers Mrs. Harvey and Mrs. McComb.

I think that the one thing that has stood out to me the most about your time in school is how easily you have made friends. Cody, you are a very likable little boy. You have a naturally sweet disposition and a very tender, loving heart. I’m convinced that these personality traits will serve you very well in the years to come. But my real hope is that God will take these traits and use them for His glory and your good.

Now the only way that God will be able to use these things in your life is if you come to understand two profound truths: 1) That you are a great sinner, 2) That Christ is a Great Savior. Your mommy and I came to understand these things when we were quite young and my prayer for you on your fifth birthday is that you too would come to believe the gospel. Cody, I pray that God would open the eyes of your heart and let you understand how great your need of Christ is and how much He loves you. I pray that you would see the love of God in the Father giving His Son’s life to make you His own. Son, do not delay in trusting in Christ! Run to Him for your salvation, for your joy, for your meaning and for life. I love you more than you will ever know.

‘Til Sin is Bitter Christ Will not be Sweet,

Daddy
