Peter Anthony ... Blessings.

My little car struggled up the steep incline only to be stopped on the crest by red signal light's. Glancing downwards for a moment my eyes then averted once more towards the road.
Transfixed I stared as a huge coach, maneuvering around the tight corner looming towards me and almost hitting my car by mere inches.

My mind wandered to think of my eldest son Peter.
He drives monster's such as this for a living.
It's his birthday on Saturday (30th) and he is hundreds of miles from family.
Now residing in north west Queensland, he drives a variety of different coaches, catering for the mines.
I pray his day is bright and that the coming year is full of the goodness of the Lord shining with Joy upon him.
I commemorate my son and all he means to those of us who love him.

His name means:
Peter:  The Rock
Anthony:  Worthy of Praise
God loves Him.

He was one of those perfect babies who kept to a timed routine.
Always a sunny child, he looked at life though rose coloured glasses of love.
  Nehemiah 8: 19
                            "For the joy of the LORD is your strength."

Even as a toddler, he reached out to take his big sister's hand.
Family have always been priority to Peter.

Femia and Peter

John 3:18

"My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue,
but in deed and in truth."
Quick witted, he always has something funny to say
He has the ability for turning sadness into joy.

Picture here on the right of his sister Femia, with her husband David, two of his cousins, Vanessa and Brad and his younger sister Daniella. 

At ten years of age he plagued me for a little brother. 
God granted him the desire of his heart.
Pictured proudly here with Lee-Joel, brother and gift from God. 

So my son.

My prayer for you today is.

"A wife of noble character YOU can find.

                                She is worth far more than rubies.
                                You have full confidence in her
                                and lack nothing of value.
                                She brings You good, not harm,
                                 all the days of her life...
                                 (and you Bless each other)" AMEN
Proverbs 31:10-12
May the Lord Bless thee and keep thee..
and strong
in Him always

  12. Ah Crystal Mary, a beautiful tribute to a handsome and deserving son. I'm sure some lucky woman will recognize all his marvelous qualities--all in God's perfect timing.

    Our baby son wanted nothing more than to meet the right woman and have a family of his own--he was twenty-five, not old, but older than he wanted to be but God brought the PERFECT woman into his life. They are two peas in a pod as everyone says. They love all the same things. God is awesome to answer our prayers like that.

    Praying with you for Peter--


  13. I especially love that picture of Peter and his brother. His look and pose strikes me as saying "this is MY brother. Mum got him for me special"

  26. Hello, I happened upon your beautiful blog today. I love the song you posed on your side bar. What a wonderful and heart felt tribute to your son.

  27. This was a lovely post. Your son should be so proud to have a mama like you too. Have a blessed day.

  28. hey??? how come i didn't work for me?? i kept bugging my mom for a little brother/sister, but i remain to this day an only child.
    i now understand what an hysterectomy means...
    i was lucky me and my mom both survived the pregnancy as we were both doomed to die, according to the doctor, who even prepped my dad to choose between me and my mom if one could be salvaged...
    your boy is lucky to have had his wish. and you have lovely children. they look...happy!!
    good for them!!

  29. Thak you all, what a blessing you are.
    Hey Tickle...You are so blessed your mum and you survived.. Gods love is around you. hugs back.
