I Can Not Believe You Are Five!

Wow!  Happy birthday, little man!  Today is Samuel's fifth birthday and we couldn't be happpier that God made him part of our little clan.  As is the Wachter tradition, today we have blessings and praises to honour this special boy. 

Pa:  I praise his compassion in the way he runs to get woof-woof for anyone is distress.  Blessing-  That he would continue to learn of wisdom in his study of proverbs-that he would be as wise as Solomon. 
 Mama:  I delight in the enthusiasm that you have that encourages me to be jump into anything with a cheerful attitude.  Your empathy for all people and your desire to bring comfort to all who are hurting or sad astound and humble me.  The blessing I claim for you in the next year is Proverbs 1:10- "My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not."  And by the way I hope you always love those sweet freckles as much as I do. 

Kaitlin:  I praise his eagerness to hump aboard with  a project ("Let's do what we were going to do!")  Blessing- That you would grow in favour with God and man daily; and become a great man of God.
Brianna:  Praise - The way he gets excited in doing little things to brighten someone's day.  Blessing- May he be as strong as David, nothing like Saul and as wise as Solomon.
Emma:  Praise-He's a peace maker.  Blessing- You would continue to be inquisitive about God's word. 
Nathaniel: Praise-he is a diligent worker like when he's watering plants and he doesn't even bother about what watering can he uses, he just waters.
Aedan:  Praise-He's cheerful in his work, sometimes.  Blessing- That he would continue to be an obedient boy.
