I miss those

CURLS! Elijah's hair always turns so curly in hot, humid weather! I'm looking forward to the summer weather too... I'm done with winter. I know we've been spoiled with a nice mild winter this year... it's not the weather I'm tired of. I'm just sick of all the viruses we've been getting. The flu bug twice, pneumonia, now Eden has a fever again... and all three have bad colds. On top of it all, Evie has to get a molar tooth pulled. I feel so bad for her.

I really can't complain though. I'm just so blessed in so many ways. My heart is so heavy these last few days for this family.

Listening to Francis Chan speak today (February 21's service) too reminds me of just how easy we as Christians have it living in North America. Francis is encouraging everyone to watch a video he posted on his website. It's supposed to be very difficult to watch. I haven't been able to bring myself to watching it yet. It's about persecuted Christians. As my heart is heavy with for these families, I keep finding myself saying, "Jesus, come back soon!". I'm so thankful for the hope we find in Christ and in eternity!


  1. That is the cutest picture of his curls EVER! I love that boy :) And I love Francis Chan, but I don't know if I want to watch that video.

  2. I am finally starting to read "crazy love" by francis chan. i had to finish reading "fearless" by max lucado first (really good book)! (Lindsay)

  3. Thanks Beth- I love Elijah (and Francis) too!
    And Lindsay- Crazy Love is awesome, life-changing actually. Puts life into a different perspective:)
