Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Happy 16th Birthday, Bear!

My favorite picture -- just minutes after being born.

You were the sweetest, happiest, snuggliest baby I've ever known.
Your nickname "bear" still fits you.
Even though you're 16 years old, you're still the sweetest.
We love you.



  1. Don't you just love the tender memories such nicknames inspire?

    Happy Birthday, sweet 16!

  2. Happy 16th!!! I imagine your mom is doing an awesome cake. :)

  3. Happy Birthday!!!! Hope you all have a wonderful day. I just have to ask... is he a teddy bear or more of a grizzly?

  4. Thanks, Kimberly. I do have very fond memories of his sweet youth!

    Margaret -- this boy wants Sweet Potato Pie!

    Matilda -- mostly a teddy, but he has his grizzly moments!

  5. Happy 16th Birthday! What a beautiful picture!

    God Bless,

  6. I have heard that most teenagers have grizzly moments. I think the Professor is warming up!

  7. Happy birthday! Can't wait to see the cake!

  8. Happy birthday to your teddy bear Barbara! That is a remarkable picture for a newborn. So sweet!


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
