High Hopes

Stickthrowing7thumbStickthrowing1thumbI love watching our sons explore, learn, and grow.  I’m going to watch them do that for the rest of my days, if the Lord wills it. We weave a web that might appear to be beautiful to us, but can be easily destroyed.  May my sons be willing to rebuild what others might try to take down and always work towards that beauty, and may they have hope and complete trust in God through it all.  My prayers for them are that they will not be concerned with the pleasures offered by this world, but willing to please others who are in need: feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, rebuilding the lives of the homeless, working along side those who are cast-off by society, affectionate to those who don’t know what affection is, love to the orphan and the widow, forgiveness towards the hateful, and seeking justice for the oppressed and the slave. I pray they (and we) will put on the whole armor of God and be concerned with the living out the fruits of the Spirit.  These things are true love and the most effective way to share God with others.

  1. Tony undergoes surgery to remove the shrapnel embedded near his heart. He pitches his obsolete chest arc reactor into the sea, musing he will always be Iron Man, even without his armor.

  2. They are such a cute boys! I think you are so right when you say about helping others as a way of life.
    I really enjoy reading your blog 🙂
