Happy Birthday, Nathan!

Today, May 27, 2012, my baby turned 18.  Nathan Ray is already a young man but he will always be my baby.  I was with him last year on his 17th birthday;  but since we are continents apart on this special day, we had two celebrations.

My celebration here in Florida

His birthday celebration back in the Philippines.

I love you, son! We will soon be together.

"I love you, my child
There is nothing that you can do
that can separate me away from you

You are here always,
with my strong and loving embrace
You are protected 
You are loved.

I delight in you,
and see my own eyes upon your eyes
I take away your fears
I take away your tears
from now on you are safe
and you are where you've always longed to be.

Let the people who judge you
see how I cherish you now,
Let those who condemn you 
see how close you are to me.

You are never outside of my love,
never an outcast
never a failure
never so far away

You need not do anything
to please me,
for I am already pleased
that you trust me
to guide you in everything
you wanted to do

You are beautiful
you are whole
you are healed
you are my beloved
you can rest upon my strong shoulders,
and trust that you won't ever slip away,
For it is I
who is holding on firmly to you."
