Zebedee is now 7 years old as of February 24. I have had the privilege of having him as my special birthday present for all of those seven years and I've got to say that no matter how many wonderful gifts that I recieve from people having a Zebedee born on my birthday tops them all! Zebedee is one of the most generous children I have ever known. He loves to give whenever he has something that makes him happy to give. It just comes natural to him to share what he has with others and make them smile. I just love watching him do this and pray that he will always enjoy giving! giving can be such a great reward in life. To see someone enjoy a gift can just give you such a great feeling of joy. Joy is the happiness that God gives because you are doing what he wants of you. It is also, the hope of a great future with Christ. when you have this hope no matter what kind of bad day that you may be having you still have a joy that is unspeakable.
Here is what he got for his birthday, you can find these at Amazon.com:
this watch from Mom and Dad (its real cool the boys keep finding more and more neat things you can do with it. It even has games, a flash light and a lie detector)
This cool flash light that changes colors from Mom and Dad
An art set from Nana
and a whole tin of gum from Granny
and some money from our dear friend at church
He was so happy and thankful. This was a great day!

My little boy, Loty is sick with a cough and he woke me up this morning early! So I did the first thing that I always do; that is to pray and then I took him some water. Sometimes that's all that is needed but the water wasn't doing it alone this time so God impressed upon me that I should do the next thing that I always do and that is to take a garlic gel cap and open it up by snipping off the end and and rubbing it onto the souls of his feet. I let him drink some more water and fervently prayed some more. The cough just was not going away and seemed to be getting more stubborn so I continued in prayer and God said that I had another thing that could help his breathing so I added some children's vapor rub to his chest plus I tried an old remedy of letting him drink a little pure honey to coat his throat. the cough is a little better now but not gone. So please say a word of prayer for my little Loty this morning and through the day. His little sister, Nora (twins) also needs your prayers although her cough has gone away she still has a runny nose. Mommy has been sick this weekend as well but God has raised me up enough to watch over my children although I am very tired and need the prayers of God's people. Thanks!
