Malachi has totally and completely changed our world. With a calm and sensitive spirit, many of our family refers to him as a "mini-Joel". He has so many of the same mild mannered, carefree characteristics of his Dad in him! He loves to do anything on computers, loves to talk about anything and everything, overall just enjoys life!
Malachi in Hebrew means - "My (God's) Messenger". I had picked out the name Malachi James in Jr. High simply because one day I thought of it and it stuck with me. However, I know that God in His infinite wisdom knew who my firstborn son would be and so He laid the name on my heart! Malachi truly does love to discuss things in terms of God and His Word. He will often compare or relate things to God. Although I have no idea what he will be when he grows up - I know that he truly will be God's Messenger wherever he goes!!!
Although there are many times that Malachi drives us crazy - he is a Jr. High boy after all - for the most part, he brings joy, laughter and entertainment to our lives!!! I am so very very blessed to have this sweet spirited, caring, loving, young man in my life.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MALACHI JAMES!
