Happy Birthday to a Colorado Cowboy!

Nathanael Ebenezer
The gift of God :: Stone of Help

Nathanael!! Where do I start?? Well, first off, IT’S HIS BIRTHDAY!! :) Today this young man turns 10 years-old. Can hardly believe it! Nathanael’s “face the day with a smile” attitude, eagerness to lend a helping hand, and infectious grin completely light up the house! He has a work ethic that I aspire to and can work a thousand times harder than most men twice his age. His motto is “A job worth doing is a job worth doing well!” And did I mention he can climb a rope using his toes?{video below to prove it} He’s quite a guy!! :)

Now, Nathanael is a cowboy at heart but not the normal “El Paso” type of cowboy. You see, he is a Colorado cowboy!! That explains his nick-name “Colorada Pete”{nope, didn’t just miss-spell Colorado, just the way it’s pronounced around these parts ;)}! Future plans for this handsome blue-eyed 10 year-old? Funny you should ask! :) You see, he has had this dream for several years of moving to the rugged mountains of Colorado, building a cabin, and becoming a classic gruff mountain man living off venison stew & corn-cakes….. But just recently he has told us his plans have changed! He has decided to stick close so that he can support and care for our mom & dad once they are too old to do so themselves! :) This is one Colorado Cowboy with a huge heart of gold!! We shall see what the Lord has in store for Nathanael!

Happy Happy Birthday, Nathanael!

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.”
Numbers 6:24-26

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. Happy birthday, young chap! Your parents will sure love having you care for them in their silver years. And great job climbing ropes. I have fond memories of climbing ropes high into trees in my younger years with my brothers…but I don’t think I could do it anymore!

  2. I’m so late, but Happy Birthday to the Colorado Cowboy! That story is the coolest ever…and I wish I could climb a rope like that! :D
