Happy Birthday Grayson,
Life is all about choices.You have already made a lot of choices in your young life. One of the choices that I am amazed by is your choice to read through the Bible this past year. I was awed by your diligence and discipline to see this through. One of the things I often talk about with the college students that I work with is “becoming a man or woman of the Word.” Most of them, who are twice your age, have never read through the Bible. But at least one of them, when I told them what you were doing, has taken up the challenge.
That is one of the by-products of the choices we make. People are always watching. You make good choices and people will follow your example. You make bad choices and people will follow your example. As a 10 year old young man I am very proud of the choices I see you making.
But now you have another choice to make. It is a choice that Nona and I have been looking forward to ever since you were born. It is a choice that we hope you will be as excited about as we are. It is a choice that we think will be very fun and memorable. It is a choice that your parents already know about and are willing to help you think through.
So make a choice right now. What one question can you choose right now to figure out what I am talking about.
Hope you have an awesome awesome birthday.
Never forget that you are very loved,
