Our sweet Jojo





This sweet little man turned 9 today...  our JOJO!

He chose iced coffee and coffee ice cream for his breakfast of the day... yes, the kids were jazzed up early!:)

He is tender, incredibly generous, funny, joyful and kind hearted... seriously, his generosity blows me away... Last fall he was totally committed to buying bunk beds for some kids in Africa...for $150... That opportunity fell through, but he has been wanting to share that money so badly ever since... He has asked over and over again what person or group of people might have a need... He wants to give...

He had been asking for $6.81 for his birthday... Weeks ago I had told him of a potential need for a gal in Africa and he was determined to be able to get it for her.. .He just couldn't imagine her living with out it...

And he was $6.81 short when we totalled how much he really needed.  But he is only 9... should we really let him clean out every last penny he has saved?  He is thrilled to be able to do it!  How can we hold back his generosity?  What a precious heart the Lord has given him...

We are so blessed to be his parents!  Happy 9th Birthday Elijah Thomas... you bring my heart great joy!!
