Today is our first son, Rob's, birthday. Rob has always been a joy. As a baby, he was always happy, giving smiles to everyone. As a boy, he worked to excel at sports, at school, at scouting. He earned his Eagle Scout rank at barely fifteen years old.
At nineteen, he served a mission for our church, devoting two years of his life to the Lord and proclaiming His gospel. His testimony grew with every day. He never took credit for himself for any baptisms in which he participated, but, instead, gave credit to the Spirit, and, of course, to the Lord.
At twenty-three, he married in the Lord's House. When his wife abandoned him and their two sweet boys, Rob did not harbor bitterness. He cared for his sons and redoubled his efforts to serve the Lord and to listen to His voice.
Today, Rob is married to a lovely young woman, and together, they work to rear their boys in righteousness.
So, for today, I am grateful for Rob.
