Happy 15th Ivan!


Ivan has grown up so much this past year, and not just in height and strength! He is the thoughtful, hard working, dependable, and appreciative big brother. He blesses us in many ways...He washes the huge pile of dinner dishes...with NO complaining. When there's an argument, he often just stays out if it, or tries to make peace. Just having him, with his stability and quiet determination, around is wonderful. He's the hard working mower and our go to guy, because his resourcefulness and creativity combined with his handy man abilities creates all sorts of great things. His diligence in school is paying off well and inspiring us! He surprises us with his culinary abilities, and loves anything coconut. He is such a joy for us {Anna and Charity especially} to have as a best friend; we're SO blessed that he isn't concerned about being "cool", but appreciates us and loves spending time with us! We're thankful to the Lord for him!
Happy 15th Birthday Ivan!
We love you BUNCHES!
"By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and LIFE."
{Proverbs 22:4}

P.S. I know he'd love to get 15 "happy birthday" comments! [smile]

Happy Birthday Ivan! I know what a blessing it is to have a brother who loves his family and cares more about being involved in serving the family than "fitting in". I pray that this will always be your desire but most importantly that Christ would be Lord of your life and doing His will. We are thankful for you and your good example.
