Happy Birthday Eric!

Today is Eric's 18th birthday! It's a pretty big day in a young man's life when he turns 18 years old. I'm not sure if the law is the same in Uganda, but in my eyes, I suppose I have to stop calling Eric my sponsored "child", since...well...he's an adult now. Is it weird to call him my sponsored "man". Haha. Yeah, that sounds weird.

Either way, I pray birthday blessings over Eric today.

Dear Eric, 

I hope that you are having an absolutely wonderful day today! I hope you woke up this morning with excitement for your birthday. I hope you know how much you are loved and appreciated by your family, by your friends, by me, and most importantly, by God. 

God has certainly made you into a wonderful young man. I know that God has many big plans for you and your life. I will continue to pray that God blesses you and your family with abundant grace. 

I hope you get to do something special for your birthday. Maybe your mother will make you your favorite meal today. Maybe you'll have time to spend with your friends. Maybe you get to even have a party! Whatever you get to do, I'm hoping that you have a wonderful birthday.
