Today’s your birthday son
you’re at the age of one

Your short life has been threaded with transitions,
And ours with a joyous addition.

The One who knitted you in the womb of your biological mother
Purposed your life to be held by another.

And so in his providential plan you are a Lewis.
We are a family who needs Jesus and His life to run through us.

Your smiles and laughter fill my heart with delight,
I love listening to you chatter with your animals at rest time and night.

Your hand seems to be made for your sisters hair,
She’s being such a trooper and shows so much care.

We are so grateful the Lord chose us to be your family Nate Lewis,
We see everyday how his love flows to us!

Happy Birthday,
Dad
September 7 (the night before your birthday)

    Marc, that is absolutely beautiful and so true. Nate is one lucky little boy to have been purposed to be held by you. God continues to bless your life as you pour into others. You are a WONDERFUL father and we love you all.
