Happy 30th birthday, Mark!

June 3, 2010, birthday morning.

Counting up last night, I realized that I met Mark 2 months shy of 10 years ago. I've had the privilege of having a front row seat to seeing God's working in him over the years. His 20's were full. I'm tired just thinking about them. Really, I've watched him grow from a boy to a man. I've seen him grow in humility, service, patience, wisdom, selflessness, perseverance and love. All the gracious work of the Spirit in his life, and all characteristics of our Savior.

We went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast this morning, and Mark opened some gifts. Tomorrow we will celebrate with some friends. The menu? Chili dogs, cheetos, mt. dew and apple pie. He may be 30, but he loves jr. high food.

Thanks for the happy birthday wishes, everyone.
