A couple months ago I had a terrible migraine that lasted for five hours! The excruciating pulse felt like my head was going to explode. My wife and I went to the ER and I desired to immediately get help! It was my first migraine and I had no idea what to do. Instead of getting help right away, I had to wait!!
We’re having a baby!!!
This is extremely exciting for us and getting to experience the process of life developing is amazing. I'm going to be a father!!
Among the many things I love seeing, is our child's heart beating. This is the same heart that my wife and I will be responsible for shepherding. It’s the same heart that God desires to show His love!
So, in our excitement, my wife and I created a little song to express our joy for our little one. I recorded it for fun and I'm happy to share it with you!
For some, it takes place quickly and for others, it happens over a long period of time. For some, it’s foreseen and others have to adapt from its unexpected arrival. It’s diverse in the way it comes, but for all it’s a common part of life and along with it are challenges. I’m talking about transitions.
Have you ever been in a relationship and those small but big moments happen? For instance the first time you hold each other’s hand. I remember holding my fiancée’s hand for the first time and it was amazing! A small gesture yet meaning so much! As the one initiating for her hand to grasp mine, so many things were going through my mind even before she responded. It’s in this simple moment that God revealed Christ love for me.
It was a pivotal day.
The earliest memory I have of seeing him was on my 8th birthday; my dad
Walked through the doors into a house full of children playing
I was in the middle of something which I don’t even remember
because my eyes caught a hold of him.
Standing in the midst of the congregation my heart beats heavy like a kick-drum.
Riding on the city bus all of my being is overrun with longing.
Walking the concrete sidewalks on campus, I feel like I'm drowning in amazing grace...
It was the most agonizing time of the year for me. Hearing the merry tunes of Christmas songs berated my ears. Seeing the decorations caused me to seethe on the inside. A Christian who deplored Christmas. I had a wounded heart, but it has been refreshed.
I love to write. These writings come from my time in the Word of God, from observation, and trails in life. I pray that you will be blessed as you read them.
