|One day old|
January 22, 2008
"This is the best day of my life! We have wanted you so long, Cavan. I have prayed for you many times a day over the last twelve months. You are finally here! The moment I heard your cry...the moment that I saw your beautiful face...they are moments I will never forget. Your very presence completes a love story that I never knew existed in my being."
A love story. That is exactly what my sweet Cavan is. We struggled with infertility for several months and faced the harsh reality that we might not be able to have children. Through it all, we never lost faith in God. We just clung to His word and held tight to His promise for our future. I live every single day thankful, knowing that not every couple's story turns out like ours. Thankful that five years later, we have (what seems like to us at least) "a quiver full!"
Cavan is a precious boy. When I asked him what he wanted me to write about him on my blog today, without hesitation he ecstatically stated, "tell them that I like superheroes, Nerf guns, doughnuts, and bread sticks!" Above the cool toys and yummy foods however, Cavan is a fantastic kid both inside and out. He has a passion for kindness and always looks for people doing what we call "the right thing." I absolutely love that about him...
My wish is for Cavan to grow up to be a world changer. Changing the world for the glory of Christ, one person and one deed at a time, while taking no personal recognition. If you know me, you know I like to think BIG. I love big cities, big churches, big schools, and even wore big earrings and had big hair back in the 90's. I think it is important to remember, however, that lives are touched when we take the time to get to know one another personally. When we gain insight to one other person's hopes, dreams, aspirations, and faith, we become an instrument to one. We can become a catalyst that supports one into developing the person that they were created to be. God uses our ones! My prayer is that Cavan will change the world one person at a time, allowing God to lead him the entire way.
Happy birthday Cav! I love the one-and-only you!
