Our new deck is on!

No time to write, but here are some pictures to give you an idea what it looks like. Too muddy now to get pictures from below. Also, as you can see, our camera is really starting to go downhill. Arg.

BTW--Today I'm 30, which is pretty strange. I don't know really how to describe it. I'll post some highlights later.

Very Sad News

Last night at 10:30pm, Luke Benjamin Michael went home to be with Jesus. He was almost 5 months old. Please pray for his parents, Rachel and Paul as well as the rest of their family and friends. Please also remember our friends Justin and Holly who also lost their newborn baby Luke to HLHS this year.

Here is the last entry from their blog...

"The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a child will lead them." Isaiah 11:6

Luke Benjamin Michal suffered a lethal arrhythmia last night and passed away.

Born: 07/21/2007
Died: 12/19/2007

Me again...

This year has been such a year of grieving. Praise the Lord that he says their will be laughter as well as weeping and that there is a time for both. For now we weep and we wait on Jesus in hope, knowing that when he returns all things broken and hurting will be restored and whole again. Please Lord, come quickly.

Our baby's 2

Clara turned 2 on Thursday! We had a small party for her with just the five of us and it was the best birthday party I've ever done for the kids. It was so simple and quiet. Even the kids liked it better. She got her very first baby doll, which she named "Baby Doll"--smart girl. If you click on the picture below, it will take you to a series of photos from the event. Merry Christmas!
