“Look at the flowers of the field. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you?”
Meeting Piper for the first time…
I’m pretty sure he likes you.
Daddy and the nap time guard dogs.
Hey Reagan, what’s the meaning of life?
Hmm…let me think about it.
You: Daddy, how did the dinosaurs go extinct?
Me: I don’t know, Reagan, how?
You: Tar pits.
Trying to figure out this whole dad thing.
Time for a music break…
First bath at home!
The value of our home has gone through the roof since becoming a family of three (five if you count the pups). It’s so so good to be together. As funny as it sounds, I keep thinking about God and his love of home. God’s first action in the Scriptures is to make a home where he can his children can live together. When that home is lost, the rest of Scripture is full of God’s desire to bring his family back. “I will be their God and I will be their people.” Home. Together.
Home is what God loves. Recovering home is what he died for. This is that longing in our hearts, too–to be home in the company of the Trinity. Invited up and in, into the great Family Room of God’s hospitality. These few days with you has given me a clearer picture and fuller taste of just what it is God loves so dearly, and why he loves it so much.
