We’ll miss you, KP!

Standard

In the matter of one week, my friend, KP, found out she was finally pregnant, her husband was offered a position at his dream job, and a contract was pending on their house. So, to celebrate our friendship, some of the ladies from our church took her out to eat tonight and spend a few last moments with her, because….well….you see, her husband’s dream job is five states away. KP will be moving in ONE WEEK!


I love you, KP. I’m so thankful God gave us three years of face-to-face friendship. I know that we will forever converse, whether it by via phone, email, or FACEBOOK. Your parents also have a sweet place in our hearts and we will miss seeing them twice a year. I am so excited for you and MP. God is certainly the giver of all good things. How grand that he’s given you each other, a job to provide, a house to live in, and a sweet little baby in your family. I wish I could be there to celebrate the baby’s birth but please, please, please call us over here in Georgia when he/she decides it’s time to make an appearance.

Some of my memories of KP:

eating PB&J sandwiches together
traveling to St. L for a week long stay at her parent’s house
learning about our cameras together (can you say “manual”?)
gift of the stuffed frogs
conversations after the worship service
giggling & crying on the phone
talking about pregnancy and motherhood
apartment horror stories
SCRAPBOOKING 101

We love you, KP.

ONE TRUE GOD!

Standard

Luke: “Mom, who are those people walking through our neighborhood with their Bibles?”


Andrew: “Oh, I know. They are telling people about God.”

Me: “Well, how many Gods are there?”

Both boys: “There’s only ONE TRUE GOD!” (children’s catechism #10)

Me: “Well, those people are telling others of…..

Luke, interrupting: “…a pretend god?”

Me: “Well….yeah.”

Andrew: “‘Since we know the one true God, does that make us better than them, Mom?”

Me: “Certainly not. Our hearts are just as dirty as theirs…but what do we have that we could share with them?

Andrew: “Jesus! A savior!”

Me: “Do we deserve Jesus and his grace?”

Luke: “Nope, but he died on the cross for my dirty heart anyway, right, Mom?”

We had this conversation in the car tonight on our way to a Jews for Jesus presentation of the Passover meal. What a great reminder of God’s love toward me! How encouraging to hear the gospel gripping my boys’ heart, softening it, and molding them through the asking of questions. Praise God!
