Happy Birthday, Matt!

 Happy 22nd Birthday, Matt!
We are so blessed and thankful by the laughter and love you bring to our home!
Whether you're working, working out, laughing and sharing crazy youtube videos,

or discussing life's more serious side,
may God bless and lead you in the year ahead!

The mettle of a runner is not proven at the start
The middle-to-end of the race proves who we are at heart
The most important matter is not how the race began
But how we finish that confirms the measure of a man

Then choose to be strong in the Lord; the power of His might
No matter what may try and test, will fit you for the fight
Do not be wise in your own eyes (for we see but in part)
We walk by faith and not by sight; Trust God with all your heart

Young man, rejoice while you are young but keep one thing in mind
The greatest mark of success is to be honest and kind
For these will bring true happiness through living’s highs and lows
And leave a good example for Small Fellow who follows

Who knows what you must brave before you reach the other side
While fire pulses in your veins with many dreams untried
Remember this, while you are young and feeling fit and fine
The measure of a man is proven at the Finish Line

Ecclesiastes 11:9
Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, 
and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth. 
Walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes. 
But know that for all these things 
God will bring you into judgment.
Titus 2:6 NKJV
Likewise, exhort the young men to be sober-minded,  

1 Cor.9:24
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run,
 but only one gets the prize? 
Run in such a way as to get the prize.
