3 day potty training?

Rebecca and I have embarked on a "3 day potty training" program for Christian. I'll let her elaborate later about the program but suffice it to say we are in the "throws" of "big boy underwear", pee all over the bathroom, and stalking a toddler anticipating his every bowel movement! Currently I'm writing this blog seated on the floor of his bedroom while he naps. I must be available the moment he awakes for bathroom duty. Somehow I even drew that duty at 11:30 p.m.! We'll update later. For the time being enjoy a few recent photos.

Somebody is tired-who might that be?

I know when I was born!

Four basic principles

On Sunday Hunter and I always join Rebecca and Steve in worshiping at the church they recently joined here in Columbus-Vineyard Columbus. The pastor is Rich Nathan. Today I was impacted by the simplicity of four basic Biblical principles he shared with the congregation.

1. All of life is to be Christ-centered. In fact our fundamental identity should be: I am a Christian-a daughter (or son) of God.

2. We are to sacrifice ourselves for each other.

3. We are to strengthen and encourage one another.

4. Christ makes all things new.

As simple as these principles appear to be they are found throughout the Bible and if followed will transform us and continue to make life full, rich, and a growing experience.

Speaking of growing-here are a few grandchildren updates from North Carolina
