Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above,
where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:1-3

The Baby Is . . .

. . . a precious little boy! Yes, we're expecting our second grandson in July. My daughter Bethany and her husband Justin invited me to go along to the ultrasound on Monday. We counted tiny fingers and marveled that we could have this glimpse into such a dark and private world.

Jeremy is going to be a big brother. Though he announces it with great pride, we're pretty sure he has no idea that a little intruder is headed his way. Being with this young family at this point in their life makes me wistful for those days when I was the young pregnant mom.

For about three minutes.

I cherish the memory of those days, but I don't want to go back. I love the now and the rhythm and patterns of these days.

This is the day that the Lord hath made! I will rejoice and be glad in it!

For about three minutes....bwahahahahaha. You're funny.
Oh, believe me... Jeremy has no idea. It cracks me up that Bethany and Justin seem to go through everything we go through about a year after us as far as family milestones go.... I try to give Bethany the "heads up" and tips. haha.

Hi there. Great post. I'm Justin's cousin and found your post hopping from Bethany's. :) Congrats on another boy! I hadn't heard yet!

What Windy doesn't know is that I remember most of those things from when Nathaniel was little. :)

Yea for the boy!
