Jesse Borden is Twenty-One!


Though others have properly celebrated him here, and in motherly ways here, I also wanted to add in my celebratory comments for Jesse’s 21st birthday. Jesse is a great younger brother. He runs after God in a big, hearty ways. His hugs are healing. And his manner is so calming. I met him in the first week I moved to Portugal at a worship gathering in his living room. He was barely a sixteen year old chap, that year! Yes, he was dreadless then, but he was endlessly deep in things of the Spirit. Jesus is all braided into Jesse and we like it that way.

It is very lovely of Father this year to send Jesse to Belize for a semester abroad. And it is even more lovely that there is such a thing as Skype, that I could talk to the fresh twenty-one year old in real time on his day!

Happy birthday, brother.
