We wanted to post this picture, indicating that we’ve enjoyed a merry Christmas and hope that you did too. However, Lindsay wouldn’t want me to put it up without some commentary. So it’s left for me to announce to the blogging world that Lindsay and I are expecting our first child! Yes!
The due date is April 16, which could make it an Easter baby. And the April timeframe also puts the ETA after March Madness, which is really fortunate, because it might be hard for Lindsay to tough it out in the delivery room by herself…
So now you’re in on our big (well, getting bigger) secret.
Posting may be a little thin for the next several days because I’ve been given my annual chance to present a message at our church. I’ll be speaking New Year’s Day on the subject of Epiphany—a topic that relates to some things that I think about and write about pretty frequently (i.e. “Clues”).
What is epiphany? I’m thinking of describing it this way: Epiphany is something we constantly feel, if not in its presence then in its absence. It is something we long to experience—a glimpse of the Rescuer who came and lived on earth, and still lives today, but may not be very visible in this present moment.
Epiphany is a glimpse of God.
Epiphany hinges on Christ’s presence on earth.
Epiphany only comes to children…
No doubt I’ll be writing some more on this. Feel free to give your own take on the mysterious topic of spiritual epiphany in a comment. Who knows, maybe you'll get cited in my message. :)
