3 years ago today...

My sweet little Zakeaus joined this world.

A joyful and sometimes serious child.

He brings laughter and fun to our home.

He has a vivid imagination for one his age.

He loves Legos, Star Wars, Cars, Power Rangers and playing "family house" with the siblings.

I will always love the Bible story of his namesake....

Luke 19: 6-10 Zaccheaus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy. But the crowds were displeased. "He has gone to be a guest to the notorious sinner," they grumbled. Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, "I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have overcharged people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!" Jesus responded, "Salvation has come to this home today for this man has shown himself to be a son of Abraham. And I, the Son of Man, have come to seek and save those like him who are lost."
My prayer for our son is that Jesus will always find a home with Zakeaus, and that his life will become an example of God's eternal love and grace for all of us. I also pray that God's heart in Zak will be generous to those in need.

Happy Birthday, my baby boy!
