So I just sent my son an e-mail because he hasn't gotten any in a while...and I signed it DAD. Don't think I have ever signed anything DAD before...it made me freak out and kind of feel old. (My apologies...) And I sure do miss my Dad and Mom...Mom will be home in 3 weeks, Dad in 5!!!!! (They are in China if you are new to this place...)
I'm a Dad...I am a Dad...weird...you know sometimes stuff just slows down enough to sink in, and weird me out.
Anyway, the pic is what my Wife discovered last night when she left me home alone with the kids...or she left the kid home with the kids. Took 2 showers to get rid of that homemade tat. and for once, she didn't yell at me! (But I will get it when Join thinks because she can write on me, she can write on anything...)
This all reminds me of the love our heavenly Father has for us. He is surprising, outrageous at times, fun, and faithful...not to mention a bunch of other things.
"Our Father in Heaven...hallowed be your name, your KINGDOM come, YOUR will be done..."
p.s.--We got a contract on our Wooster house! What an answer to prayer! 1 down, Ashland house to go! Know anyone who wants to rent to own an amazing house in Ashland? Drop me a line! ($1195 a month)
God is so good. Be in prayer...tomorrow is our first Ashland Campus launch team informational meeting. (6:30 @ the Loudonville Campus...dinner and childcare provided). It brought back some deja vu for me! It was exactly 7 years ago that New Hope began as Tiffany and I decided that God was leading us to Loudonville to start New Hope...and here we go again. Who would have ever imagined this?
blessings and peace.
