At 11:59 he slipped into the world without a sound.
He didn't cry at all. His big brown eyes were busy taking it all in.
He has grown up much like that.
He is never in the limelight
but always leaves an impression.
He is rarely found without a warm smile
or a helping hand.
He is a hard worker
and loves to work out.
He is zealous for the Lord
and admires vintage trucks.
He is loyal and sentimental,
quiet and thoughtful.
He is Jonah
and he is sixteen today.
Happy Birthday to our brown eyed boy!
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.
