I recently decided to join this weekly meme which Carin created over at "Forever in Blue Jeans". For 52 weeks you have the opportunity to get a photo that you are in and blog about it. I personally think that dads miss out as well, and so I guess they should participate, too. I'm just sayin'...
This is my boy, Austin. My firstborn. A 13 year old. I love him to pieces, but he tries my patience. I think we might have been having a heart-to-heart just before this was taken or maybe that talk happened 5 minutes ago. They happen a lot. Does anyone else have lots of talks with their teenager(s).
I am trying to get used to him having more of an opinion and let me just say, it's hard. He is sweet, precious, and loving, and he gets moody, irritable and at times is obnoxious. He reacts to my moodiness and has no problem letting me know how he feels.
Lord, I pray for wisdom in helping Austin figure things out as he grows and develops into a young man. I pray that He continues to love and serve you and above all else gives Glory to Your Holy Name in all he says and does. In Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen.
On a little different note, these are some of my girlfriends. It was Jane's (in the pink) 40th birthday we were celebrating. I was honored to have been invited to join these ladies in celebrating her.
(From Left to Right: Me, Deb, Jane, Deb, Pam, and another Deb~~ I'm not even kidding)
Go on over to Carin's and join the fun.
