My oldest son, Robby is 16 years old, and will be getting his driver’s license in two very short days! He has his own lawn mowing business, job as a lifeguard this summer, and he is actively involved in his youth group. While on vacation this week, I was able to spend time observing his character, listening to his heart, and even learned some valuable lessons from our conversations. What can I say about this amazing teenager? I couldn’t be more proud of the young man Robby has become! He has a heart for serving God, he has a deep rooted sense of loyalty and commitment to his family and friends, and he is the hardest working teenager I’ve ever seen! He refuses to quit and pursues every dream or goal placed before him! He does life well, whether it’s in school, his personal life, managing relationships, spending time with his family, or his entrepreneurial world; He succeeds!
One thing I know for sure… He is one great catch! The young woman God chooses for this guy at the right time, will be one lucky lady! She will be treated as the Bride of Christ, respected, well taken care of, and loved fully! He’s never taken an interest in girls, as he is fully aware of the important factors in choosing a Godly mate. He waits patiently, loves deeply, and aligns his thoughts and actions with God’s word, all while seeking Godly council.
This week I’ve been blessed to spend quality time talking and walking with him on the beach! What I discovered? What an honor it is to see the fruits of your labor, undeserved really, mature and produce such strong Godly character and love for others! I’m one proud momma!
