This pic was taken at my surprise 30th birthday party at the Ringle crib.
Even though he's technically my younger brother, I look up to him and respect him greatly as if he were the older one. In fact, for years I called him Pa Ringle for his fatherly disposition. Joe has a maturity that is well beyond his years and a faith in Jesus that is unshakeable. Those of you who have read his blog can attest to the depth of his wisdom and knowledge in Christ. As a birthday present to me, go ahead and stop by his blog and encourage him! I have no doubt that in doing so, you will be blessed as well.
Praying that your special day (and every day) is filled with grace and blessings, birthday buddy!
This pic was taken at my going away party before moving back to NY (also at the Ringle abode).
P.S. - I'm totally cool with peeps thinking I'm younger! :-)
*After I started writing this, I scrolled through some older blog posts and came across this one from four years ago with the same exact title and picture with the cake and cupcakes! Hysterical!
