  9. HaPaY 3rD bIrThDaY STERLING!!! It feels like just yesterday we were visiting your mama and daddy in a “small” little city. That was the beginning of praying for you even before you were born. It’s so hard to believe that you are 3 years old now!! God is so good! May today be filled with all your favorite things. May you experience God’s love through all the people around you. Most importantly, we pray that in the coming year you will learn more about who God is, how much He loves you, and how desperately you need Jesus as your Savior. May God do more than you could ever ask or imagine in and through your precious life this year!!! With Love, Tim and Amy Wisdom

Big HUG and kiss on the cheek that you can wipe off if you want, but it doesn’t mean it ain’t happening. – Curtis and Timi

  14. Sterling,
    We are so happy that you are growing up so fast, but we are so sad that we won’t be there on your (and Michelle’s) birthday. We will be back in a few weeks, and then you can give us big hugs! We are glad that God gave you to your parents so that we could get to know you and be your friends. You bless us so much with your friendly smile and happy greetings. We can’t wait to see you again soon and play with you again.

    Love, Uncle Tom, Aunt Brenda, Michelle, and Christina (and Uncle Tom’s van)

  16. This is a joint birthday haiku for you, young sterling, from two bearded friends in Oklahoma.

    Happy Birthday, kid.
    Soon, you will be brave and strong.
    Like your dad. Love ya.

  17. Sterling, my love! I love you and miss you more than you can imagine! How I so wish we could be with you to celebrate your 3rd Birthday. I am counting the days until we are reunited again and I get to watch my daughter interact with her first BEST friend again! My wish for you is a pony, oh wait, that might not fit in your apartment 🙂 I guess I will wish you more hugs and kisses than you can absorb in one day. I will leave it to your Mommy & Daddy to give you mine, but don’t worry, I will have plenty for you next time I see you. Hugs, Kisses and LOVE from your (favorite) Aunt Niki 🙂

  18. Sterling,
    Do you have any idea how special you are? You have brought so much joy into so many lives. Josh and I think of you often. We enjoy looking at pictures of you that your mom and dad post, because your smile makes us smile. We ask Dad regularly to guide your parents as they guide you, because we want every good thing for your future; and we know that every good and perfect gift come from above! May blessings be poured out on you the whole year long, birthday boy!
    Josh and Tamrynn Fett

  21. Sterling! Oh how you will wonder someday at God’s plan for your sweet heart! All those years praying for a butterfly and along came this dragon! Happy Birthday Buddy! God’s plan for you is masterful and perfect, keep walking in his light.

    p.s. Yay for being 3 today! Get into something you’re not supposed to just to celebrate!

    Love you (entire Davis family),

  22. Happy, wonderful, marvelous birthday wishes to you, Sterling! I praise the Heavenly Father for you. So many people have been praying for you before you were even born, and I promise to continue praying for you. You are such a blessing to your Dad, Mom and little sister – and to everyone else who knows and loves you and your family.
