Matthias




Happy 17th Birthday, Matthias!

We are so grateful for all the creativity and ingenuity you add to our family, Matthias! From your orderly ways to your diligence in music practice and work, you add so much to our family. As Charissa could readily attest, you have a special heart for young children and our younger ones greatly benefit from your patience and care! It's exciting to see you step into the 'big brother' role this summer as the older boys have commitments away from home. May the Lord continue to bless and guide your life as you seek HIM!

"that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,"
Eph 1:17


A few of his favorite things --

  • Sport -- football
  • Restaurant -- anything Mexican!
  • Vacation spot -- Branson or Florida
  • Store -- Scheels
  • Pastime -- Practicing instruments
  • Bible character -- Paul
  • Brand -- Adidas
  • Dessert -- vanilla pudding, bananas, and graham crackers
  • Car -- Classic Dodge muscle cars

Happy birthday, brother! I hope you had a really special day! I missed being there, especially since the last 3 years we've celebrated with YOU! :)

Thank you for loving Jesus wholeheartedly, because it spills over to all you are with, and it is such a blessing! May God go before you in the year to come, and only reveal more of Himself as you seek to honor HIM!

Happy, Happy Birthday!!!
