Ever since he could make facial expressions and smile he has interacted so freely with people. There has been nothing in life so far that has taught him to stereotype or discriminate. He loves well, and this is often convicting to me.
Grocery shopping is a blast because he waves and smiles and giggles at anyone near. They get the biggest kick out of it and pause from the busyness to take time and wave and smile back and interact with him. He loves it.
So today on Caedmon's birthday I am thankful for his lesson in Love. I pray that this characteristic in him would last a lifetime. Each night I pray that he would love God with his whole heart and pursue him with passion, and that secondly he would love others very well and with humility. I am thankful for signs of this in his little life already (and should probably spend more time praying it for myself.)
Happy Birthday to a little life that has changed ours. So much thankfulness today.
