"Happy Day!"

"Grant to ... my son a whole heart that he may keep 
your commandments, your testimonies, and your statutes..."
1 Chronicles 29:19

"Rejoice in the Lord always .
Again I will say rejoice!"
Philippians 4:4

Mother's Day was followed directly by Warren's birthday, and then of course Father's Day wasn't long afterwards. To avoid confusion, I simply taught Eason to say, "Happy Day!" At first, his version sounded more like "Poppy ... DAY" with great emphasis placed on the word "day," But it has since evolved to a clear "Happy Day!" He often greets us with "Happy Day" when we enter his room in the mornings. He will also proclaim it randomlly throughout the day. Praise the Lord for the joyous spirit He has placed in this child.

"Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
in everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

So, to all of our precious friends, family and whoever else reads this I pray you each have a "Happy Day!"

P.S.  Since, writing this post, Eason has edited his phrase, and Warren tells me it is my fault.  Whenever this precious child would proclaim, "Happy Day!"  I could not help but smile & say, "happy day, baby."    So, now, instead of "happy day" Eason looks right at you with a smile &  nod and says, "Happy Baby!"  How appropriate.
