The Baby’s Lair
This is the nursery we have put together so far for our first child. I like to stand in it and close my eyes. I imagine what it will be like to have my son laying in the crib or cradled in my arms as I stare out the window – into the world. But how much more awesome it will be when I no longer have to imagine. Soon enough our baby will be here and I will get to actually physically stand there with him in my arms. What a bonding experience that will be! I can barely describe how I feel in anticipation, so I know that in that moment when I finally have him in my arms, I will be completely and utterly speechless. (more…)

We are heading into the crucifixion weekend and I want to focus on you and you alone. Let me push all ideas about easter, bunnies, eggs, candy and all that other garbage out of my mind and focus on you and what you did to rescue us.
It’s incomprehensible, the pain and agony you endured – it should have been my pain and agony. I am the one who should have been beaten, tortured and murdered. I am the one who should have suffered hell – but you took it for me. Then you rose again to show the father was satisfied with the sacrifice! God that is what I want to remember this weekend, nothing else.
1 Corinthains 2:14
