We knocked down the wall and opened up the space - the back area will be where the kitchen is! Kind of an older picture...the doors are now all in, all ceilings are painted, all walls are primed and some are painted with actual color! Move in begins 2 weeks from tomorrow!
My Uncle Bob was in town for business, so we were able to have him as our next to last guest at the apartment (my Dad comes tomorrow). His visit allowed for some good times with my brother and his family, which is always great! Unfor. Uncle Bob had to leave the beautiful 75 degree weather and return to Michigan where it is getting into the 30s at night. In this case, point for Texas.

Full circle: Abi sleeping to Waterdeep

September is Hunger Awareness month in North Texas. This link from the North Texas Food Bank's website gives a slight insight into the frustration that so many people in our community face. It was eye-opening for me.

- Waterdeep Lyrics
Below is a comment I posted on a blog called Downward Spiral ( http://mikewhitenton.blogspot.com/2008/07/following-jesus-and-social-justice-3.html). I just saw the post today and felt it was in rythm with my concern this afternoon.
It is both a confession and call for prayers. Thanks friends.

I was wondering about this today on the train
Paul says to Ephesus that he is praying for them that they would have the wisdom and understanding to see the hope of their calling, to see the riches of their inheritance, and the greatness of His power.
I started to realize that when I picture myself as "a man who helps the homeless" I see myself more poor and hopeless than rich, hopeful, and flowing with a greater power.
I need this prayer (sorry for the numbers, pasted from NET Bible):
I pray that43 the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,44 may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation45 in your growing knowledge of him,46 1:18 – since the eyes of your47 heart have been enlightened48 – so that you may know what is the hope of his calling,49 what is the wealth of his glorious50 inheritance in the saints, 1:19 and what is the incomparable51 greatness of his power toward52 us who believe, as displayed in53 the exercise of his immense strength.54

Here's why our weekend was AWESOME!!!
Joshua's First Swim in the Pool!
Happy Birthday!! Everyone was in town to celebrate Malia's wonderful life.
Josh is very anxious for his cousin to get here soon! (Us too, Josh!!)
Meeting my good friend Katye for coffee, and if you needed any more proof that Abi is going to be a big girl, look no further...

"Its unfortunate that you have the personality that you do, especially considering the way you look."
Please don't feel sad for me (well, okay, maybe you can a little), I think this quote is really funny, I just have no idea what to do with it.

Chris Tomlin didn't write this song, but it is his voice in the video. We heard this song for the first time a few months ago in church, and I feel as though it has served as a gentle reminder of what the hearts of those in His church should feel drawn to and hopeful for as we reside in areas surrounded by those who are lost and desperately seeking love and acceptance. I am encouraged and amazed by the greatness of our God and his consistency in my life.

There they are, my wonderful wife and baby on their way to work at the zoo... for the last time! Now, I am sure that they will be back at the zoo a lot as our little Abi grows, and we still don't know if Angela will be back at the zoo working after her FMLA runs out... so the separation is not quite as intense as you might expect... but come on, she works at the zoo! Yesterday she pet, PET!, a rhinocerous for work. Anyway, it is still certainly a milestone and it is bittersweet for Angela for sure. Not only does she work at a super-cool, super-fun place... but the people she works with have become very dear to her (and visa-versa). But today, we celebrate as our due date is only two weeks away! Next week, Angela will work from home... and then its all baby, all the time! This is a wonderful feeling!
