This rugged lumberjack turns 16 today!

Oh my! Well, never in my life did I imagine I would have such a handsome rugged lumberjack for a little{err big} brother!! At 6′ 2″ Gideon towers us all but please don’t let his big burly exterior and immeasurable strength intimidate you ’cause underneath that flannel top and muscle is a loveable hug-able teddy bear who just happens to have a rather extensive knowledge of all things history{honestly, his a walking encyclopedia}! ;) Plus he has proved that real men wear aprons! On top of his muscle, strength, vast knowledge, and super sensitive side, TODAY IS HIS BIRTHDAY!!

Future plans for Gideon? I am SOOOO glad you asked. ;) You see, I am pretty sure I have it all figured out for him! After becoming the world’s greatest gunsmith here in a few years{of course finishing his formal education beforehand is a must ;)}, he will ride off to Montana, buy a few hundred acres where he can cut down all the trees his big heart desires, build himself a cabin with his own two hands, and then someday in the {near or far} future he will find himself a little lady{if your looking to apply for the position you’re welcome to send over your application HERE ! ;)} who shares his infinity for all things war-history and gunsmithing!! Together they will raise a few hundred chickens and a handful of little lumberjacks! ;D Okay, so only the Lord knows what my extremely handsome brother’s future holds and I am super excited to see what is in store for Gideon!

Happiest of Birthdays to you, Gideon! Thankful your my little{big}BROTHER!

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”
Psalm 1:1-3

And though I had half a dozen super cute and somewhat embarrassing pictures of Gideon from days gone by I wanted to post, I decided to be nice and stick with the below. ;)

 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
