Packing the Kit For Camping With Lincoln

Not quite as organized as minimalist backpacking. Not nearly as light on the back, either. But can’t wait to get started!


Parents, Think On This

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was hanged naked, today 1945.

He is, by great length, one of my favorite theologians and I highly recommend: The Cost of Discipleship

Parents, think on this:

“It is from God that parents receive their children,and it is to God that they should lead them.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Running With Lincoln

Having a two year old is good exercise in and of itself.

It’s a Girl!

Second sonogram today. God’s construction of our baby’s face as shown below is beautiful!
One more ultrasound to view the heart, likely to be in four-five weeks. No concerns, heartbeat excellent (153bpm), but the technician was unable to get a clear set of pictures for the doctor. Fine by us!
Just a note, Christina is indifferent to pink, but rather prefers a classy black so as to match diamonds.

Lincoln was so proud & excited to wear his Guatemala shirt to church this morning. He has talked about ‘baby Bekah’ all day.
The whole way into church he was naming off all the people he wanted to show it to. Uncle Ben, Uncle Josiah, Uncle Cal, Uncle Sim, Uncle Matthew & Uncle Bob made the top of the list among others…
Lincoln has been rather obstinate against the nursery and so has been in the sanctuary with us for the past three weeks. But it was good to see his Uncle Cal interact with him during the service today. He’ll be a great father if that’s what the Lord has in store for him. Regardless, he’s a good uncle.
That’s all for today, Sunday.

I absolutely love the etymology of words and acronyms and this one is a gem.

Afternoon Walk

Lincoln & I walked up to Mom & Dad’s yesterday late afternoon. He was so pleased just to be outside!
