For the Last 5 years there has never been a dull moment. I remember the day very well, at our 8 week appointment hearing that we would be having twins. What a miracle! Then at week 20 hearing that they were both boys. And while we still aren't completely sure if they are identical or fraternal, we do know one thing; they are a gift from God. I cannot even begin to imagine life without these precious boys. They bring such life to me and I hope I return to them a simple glimpse of Jesus. I know God better because of them. I trust in the Holy Spirit more now than 6 years ago. I am incredibly more reliant upon Jesus because of Dylan and Brody. They are my best teachers. They convict me of my need for Christ. I have learned gentleness, kindness, goodness, and love from them. They've challenged me to patience, self-control, and faithfulness. And now I can exude joy and peace. I love them deeply and long for the day when their lips confess Jesus as their Lord.
So Here are my Five Favorites things of each.

Each year I have had a special prayer for these boys. At each birthday I add another phrase. So on their 5th birthday this is their new prayer:
Help Dylan and Brody to grow strong and healthy (0), follow you always (1), be your servant (2), live with great joy (4), and give you glory (3). Let them care for those in need (5),...
In Jesus Name,
Happy Birthday Dylan! You are a big boy now. May God bless your new year of life!
Happy Birthday Brody! You are a big boy now. May God bless your new year of life!
