Happy Birthday, Brother Bear


Dear Son,

This week you turn 11. For the past 11 years, we have been making most of your decisions for you. For the next seven years, we will be teaching you to make your own decisions. After that, we hope you will still come to us for advice, but you will be responsible for your own choices. Choose wisely. You have already made the most important decision of all, the choice to follow Jesus. Always remember that that is a choice you must make again every day. Choose to do right. Choose to be useful. Choose to be generous. Choose to be thoughtful. Choose to be kind. Choose to be happy wherever He leads you. We are proud of the boy you are and of the young man you are becoming.

Love, Mom and Dad

Happy Birthday!

That's about the best thing we can teach our kids - learn to make wise choices.
