My Right Hand

 Today is Ben's 11th birthday! 

     The name Benjamin means "son of my right hand".  It's obvious that God knew Ben's name before time began because this is the perfect name for Ben. 

     Ben is my "go-to" guy, my "right hand" man.  Regardless of the project before me, Ben is always ready to help.  Ben will get up before dawn to start a job and not stop until the job is finished even if it continues well into the night.  He is the first one to volunteer to help others on a project.  Friends and family recruit Ben for help all of the time because they know he gets the job done!

     Ben loves God, he is a loyal friend, and has a great sense of humor.   Our greatest strength is often our greatest weakness.  So, Ben's humor often manifests itself in the form of teasing, which sends him to bed first on many nights.

     I love Ben and I'm so grateful he is my son… my right hand! Happy Birthday Ben!!
