2 Teeth.

I couldn't resist sharing this one.

Butts' boys' teeth mess up naps, cause drool and we'd like to even blame them for our funky hair and bad breath.

But, isn't he sweet?

Keep Praying For Cari!

A few weeks ago, we found out that a sweet friend of ours (from the first couple of years of our time at Third Avenue in Louisville) was diagnosed with breast cancer. We've been praying for her and thinking about her constantly. Her husband, Josh, was one of the first people we met at Third on a Wednesday night. And she led the Women's Group that was such an instrument of spiritual growth and deep fellowship in my life as a new wife in a new town. She is an amazing woman, and she is trusting her amazing God.

Chemo is underway and life is hard. Please pray for this sweet family.

Cari encourages me so much, as she says things like this -
This is a testing of my faith like I have never experienced before and I find myself running to the ONE who gives me strength. Thankful for His faithfulness and perfect ability to help me be steadfast! Jesus alone is my strength.

Cari's sharing her heart - in pictures and words here.
And strangers, friends and family are giving generously here.
Please pray for her to have strength to fight and keep running to the One who gives her strength. Pray for healing.

I love you, Cari!

Not just for the kids...

It's never a bad thing when I get THESE songs like these in my head. Listen to an entire cd here. UPDATE: If you click on that link and scroll down (arrow to right of grey bar), you can listen to all of their cds!! Wow! So, if you are interested, you can listen to Nate's faves. Choose Seeds of Praise #3 and listen to #2 and #6 to hear what's almost always in our van (if he asks kindly) lately and in our heads and dreams. He actually has been known to throw FITS when his "mouth song" is not on, so we are trying to teach him that he's not in control of the song selection.

This is the only Seeds cd we own so far. Nate's FAVES are #2 and #6 without a doubt. Dustin and I have our own favorites.

Thanks to the Collins for the intro to Seeds Music... We recently bought their van, which they kindly filled with goodies from diapers to Mr. Potato Heads to this cd. I miss you, Collins.

The following two songs are not from our cd, but a couple I found on a quick You Tube search, to give you a flavor -
