Sometimes it is very difficult to keep the family close when 2000 miles separate you, but tonight was one of those occasions when technology and extra effort
narrowed the gap. 
After a morning of delivering specially baked cupcakes from Sweet and setting up a new Skype account, we anxiously waited all day for the 
Big Reveal!!!
Of course, nothing goes exactly as planned with a 3 year old; Sam had the grumpies due to her sniffles and was not a big fan of a party for her little sibling.  
That hardly stopped Gigi and Baba, though. At the count of three, we took a revealing mouthful and shouted in unison: "It's a girl! What a fun way to learn that another bundle of pure pink joy is on the way!

Only thing missing this evening...  a round of happy hugs and an ultrasound picture!
Thank you, Lindsay, for making us feel so included in your special day.

Immeasurably More
That's the phrase I believe will define my relationship with God this year.
I've been searching for a rudder to guide me through 2013. I turn to Louie Giglio's introduction to Passion 2013 and there it is!
Immeasurably more! 
Am I going to believe in the God who can do immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within me? 
What if? 
Prayer life...fervent the chart
Willingness to serve...eager
Fear, anxiety, stress...conquered
Am I going to believe?
Only You know, Oh LORD!
