But first, I want to tell you why today is so special in my home. My eldest son, Will, was born on this day back in 1991. Today is his 21st birthday!
Will is a joy and a delight, a man of God who is a blessing to all who know him--most particularly to his mom. I'm so blessed to be the mom of three wonderful boys. It's an amazing privilege to watch them grow into adulthood.
What I'd really like to do is to show you dozens of photos of Will from all stages of his life, but I don't want to embarrass him. Still, I'll share this one from what seems like just a short time ago, but is actually from 1991:
And this one from just a few weeks ago.
And I'll say it once more: the years go by really fast! If I were to give one piece of advice to a new parent, it would be to make your family a place where grace reigns--grace for your kids and grace for yourself. Be grateful for God's grace and model yourself after Him!
Now for this week's party! Grace at Home is a party is a celebration about all the things we do to make our homes places of grace. You can link a post about

Whatever you do to make your home a place of grace, I'd like to hear about it. Please link up the permalink for your post, not your blog's home page. Please include a link back to the party and visit with some of the other links. If you can help me spread the word about the party, I'd surely appreciate it. And since today is such a special day for me, could I ask a favor? Could you please take the time to visit the link just before yours? It's not really a party if no one visits with others. Thank you!
