  • Happy Birthday Hailey!!!
  • Today is my baby daughter’s – Hailey Breanne Charles – fourth birthday.

    I use the word “baby” for my own sake. She is not a baby anymore. Ask her, and she will quickly tell you that she is a big girl.

    But, of course, she will always be daddy’s baby.

    I begged for Hailey. Literally, begged.

    More specifically, I wanted another son. But I could not be more happy to have this been given a precious little girl.

    Hailey is Crystal. So is Natalie. But while Natalie has more of my personality, Hailey is Crystal. On steroids! But this is just another reason for me to love her so deeply.

    I look forward to getting a front row seat to see what the Lord will do in Hailey’s life. And I count it a great privilege to be used of God for her nurture and development.

    I pray daily for her salvation and that she would grow as Jesus grew – in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man (Luke 2:52).

    Happy birthday Hailey!

    Who loves you?

    The Most Important Commandment

    And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this:‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him. And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that no one dared to ask him any more questions. – Mark 12:28-34 Armies win…
