On December 27 Jedidiah turned 6 years old! Of course we had the usual Hellwig family birthday celebration, peach tart and all. Jedidiah is definitely a character, as you can tell from the picture below.Arianne made a beautiful blueberry pie, below:
On top are his initials, Jedidiah Nathan Hellwig, then comes the dog, his favorite animal and the 6, his age. Of all the pies we have made in the fairly recent past I think this one definitely turned out one of the best.
Jedidiah (beloved of the Lord) and Nathan (gift) definitely summarize how highly we prize him.
He was a most precious gift from the Lord 6 years ago and we wonder how we ever lived without him. Indeed, when each new one comes along we wonder how we ever lived without him.
We pray that he will grow up to be a mighty and beloved man of God and that God would use him for his own good purposes in years to come.
