Today is my son’s 13th birthday. We have had a wonderful time celebrating this week as a family. How could we have three teenagers?!

I asked Grant to lead us in prayer for our meal the other night. Near the end of his prayer he said, “Thank you, God, for giving me 13 years.” It was a simple statement. It made a profound impact on me.

Indeed, God is the One who gives us every year…every day. And we should be grateful for every one of them.

As a dad I was encouraged by his prayer. As a Christian I was convicted by it. How often do I pause just to thank the Lord for life? He gave it. He alone sustains it.

I thank God today for giving us 13 years with our son. I thank God for each of our children. Our lives are in His hands. He has been exceptionally good to us.
