Eyes Full of Life


Eyes full of life

big, brown and bright.

Limbs full of flight

swift, quick and light.

Arms full of love

hugs, touch and tender.

Throat full of laughter

quick, loud and chatter.

Heart full of joy

sweet, young and pleasure.


Happy Birthday to my sweet boy/man-child as you turn 11 today! You are the light of my life! Your energy is contagious. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t hear you running in the basement as you play cowboys! Your smile lights up the darkest days. You have a light within you that shines brightly. Anyone who knows you can see that the Lord shines within you. I know in my heart that you will do great things for the Lord as you grow. Your are full of compassion. You are owner of one of the most sensitive hearts I have ever known. Never stop! Keep your heart tender towards others, just as you do now. You are always ready to be silly and laugh. It definitely keeps smiles on the rest of our faces when you pull your antics. You are a joy-giver. Always ready to share the joy of the Lord and life with those around you.

So, today on your birthday, just know how much you are loved! And never stop shining!
