Once upon a time, a sweet baby boy was born.

As the years went by, he became an adorable first grader…

…and an award-winning cow handler.

Eventually he became a college graduate,

and then he became a cancer patient – and then a cancer survivor.

And because he had found the lovely love of his life, he became a husband.

Not too long after that, by the grace of God, he became a father.

Just a few months later, he became a physician (and then he became an intern!)

A few more years went by. The man became a father again,

and then he became a thirty-year-old. And he lived happily ever after.

*When Jonas counts by rote, he gets his numbers perfectly up through 29. Next, he says, “Twenty-ten!” And I say, “No, next is thirty.” And he says, “Okay, thirty. 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, thirty-ten.” And I say, “No, next is forty.” And so forth and so on.

  1. What a great post! Beautifully written!

    The 30-10 thing is such a very funny and common thing for little ones to do…it actually shows how smart they are to apply it that way. Aw…so cute and such fun times!

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”
