Today, my youngest child turns 21. For Jordan, “then” and “now” pictures represent a significant pilgrimage, even in his relatively short life. From athlete through multiple surgeries to musician, all of the cul de sac’s and relentless side roads were frustrating and confusing and, more than once, self-induced. But with fresh eyes we glimpse how God was directing his journey (regardless how hard he tried to fight against His blueprints). We have all learned that hard isn’t always wrong, and sometimes it is the only method that works. And, yes, it worked.

Happy birthday, Jordan Davis Colle. You have brought much joy, life (and prayer) to our lives and we are thrilled God entrusted your early years to our care. It has been fun and I have zero doubts it is going to get even funner.
