Today marks another reason my God is praised
It is the twelth year of the boy we have raised
A son, this precious gift from Our Father given
My heir, my boy, is celebrating twelve years of living
How much love can one heart feel? How proud can I be?
My baby boy has grown into this young man I now see
I will always love you, my chlld, no matter what you do
This is a father's love and it is a love forever true
You have made me proud for so many wonderful things
But your choice to follow the Lord makes my heart sing
To know that you have focused on what is most important
This babe, now grown so much, is one of God's infants.
Happy Birthday, my one and only son, I love you so
But there is a love so much greater that you now know
Our Father in Heaven has blessed us with the gift of you.
We thank and praise God. Happy birthday, son! I love you.
I thought it only fair that I show my love for you here as I have done for your sister. I love you both so much.
I could never manage enough words to establish how much I love my children. I am so thankful to God for my wife and my children. How much can a human heart feel.
I have only one son and he is my firstborn, my heir. When I look or think about this precious gift I find myself thinking how powerful a love that God has for His children.
Parents each of you know how painful it is to see your precious children hurting from anything, just think about Calvary. I can never love with a love that Our Father has. Think how much love it took to send Jesus to suffer for me. I am thankful for my son. I am thankful that we get to celebrate another year of his life. But most importantly I am thankful that Our Father loved us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son that my son (and whoever believes) can live. Our salvation is assured because of a Father's love.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This is so wonderful! Thank you for sharing such a special part of your heart with us. I'm no Daddy, but I've got an only son as well. They hold such a special place in a mother's heart too. And I've often thought along the same lines... how the Father must have felt as He gave His Only Begotten, about how much I love my own son, and about what that says about the Father's love for me. It's quite humbling and quite amazing.
This is even more appropriate with 'Father's Day' around the corner. With a love that is so evident at home no wonder God is using you to touch lives everywhere you go. This is one of the things thats lacking in some of our leaders today. They speak of love in church but there is no evidence of it in their lifestyle and the bible tells us to lead by example. Your son is fortunate to have a father that cares like you and moreso you are blessed to have been given the opportunity to father this child. Never stop pouring out the love on your children. That way they can always feel free to run to you for advice.
My oldest, Christian, is also 12 he will be 13 in July how this poem has touched home and touched my heart this morning! God Bless our children and let them grow to glorify and seek You. Amen Love Danette
Christian - It is amazing the love that our Father in Heaven has for us! Sometimes when I really think about it deeply, I just cannot fathom such love. I think we were thinking along the same way tonight about the Father's love, for I, too have just submitted an article about it.
I love this poem to your son. God bless you. And Happy Father's Day to you! In Christ's Love,
