Sometimes life takes you back a few years and it’s always worth looking over your shoulder to remember the overflow of one’s heart.

A few pages from the diary of my heart for our son on his birthday….
Your Life’s Amazing Race began on
February 24, 1983 at 5:55 PM
When you became our son;
Jacob James C. England
God has had a great plan on your life before you were ever born.
That plan has been unfolding with every mile you complete in your race; a race that has been charted from the very beginning.
There are those who have greatly influenced you along the way.
Now, it’s your turn to lead the next generation of runners in their race;
Those adorable children of yours.
I am forever thankful for those lives that have loved you greatly for so many years, but sadly were last seen at the fork in the road called “Heaven Bound.”
David and I love you son.
May God continue to reveal amazing surprises for you around every lap of the race you take.
Your Life’s Amazing Race
By Lori A Alicea
A charted course, your race is set,
Specific map assign.
A plan prepared before your birth,
To reach the finish line.
Your map it details every step,
Your path God charts them all.
He guides your way and sets the pace,
The prize, fulfill your call.
A marathon of hills to climb,
Yet miles where watchers cheer.
Encouragement when loss of strength,
Demands you persevere.
Beware the turns that lead astray,
The detours that seem right.
Keep firm your faith and feet before,
The prize that’s in your sight.
You’ve journeyed far, we’re proud of you,
Yet many miles you face.
Faint not, your God he runs beside,
Your life’s amazing race.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easy entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Blessings on another year older son.
You are all grown up; but that little boy still holds a special place in my heart.
Spoken from the pages of David’s heart …
You may not be my blood.
You may not share my name.
But love goes deeper than any human understanding.
If I never told you,
I’ve always believed it.
I’m proud of you as any dad would be.
You are my Beloved Son.
Thirty-eight years ago
You left the starting line to begin your
Life’s Amazing Race.
As the laps in your life begin to take their grueling toll; Don’t give up or give into the pain. Stay in your lane. Persevere and complete your race. As a prize awaits your finish. Love Mom.
