Driving Pet Peeve

In response to this post, I must say that I am emphatically an early merger. Late mergers are the bane of my driving existence. Go to the back of the line!



Between family, ministry, school, and a bit of sickness, this blog has been slightly neglected.


Alora's First Cavity and Filling

I went with Alora this morning to the dentist because she had to have a cavity filled. This was her first filling, so she was a little nervous. On the way to the dentist office, Alora and I had the following conversation:

Me: Are you nervous?

Alora: I'm a little scared of the shot. Is it going to hurt a lot?

Me: Not too much. But it will hurt a little. Do you want us to pray together?

Alora: Of course.

After we prayed, we talked and made jokes for the rest of the time until we arrived at the dentist.

Me: We're here. Are you ready?

Alora: Yes. I feel much better now.

Me: Do you feel better because we prayed?

Alora: I like the prayer and the knock-knock jokes.

Alora's appointment went great. The Dentist and his assistant were so good with Alora. They did everything they could to help her be comfortable. Hopefully, we won't have to deal with any more cavities for a while--through all the candy from last weekend certainly doesn't help.

To My Wife

Since this is my blog, I guess I can blog about whatever comes to my mind. So, tonight, I've decided to take a moment and let everyone know that my wife is the greatest. If you know Amy, then this fact will come as no surprise to you. Amy loves Jesus. She loves me. She loves our girls. She is a constant source of encouragement. I am so blessed to have her as my wife. We've been married for 6+ years. I can still remember the first time that I met her at North Greenville--so beautiful and funny. And she's still beautiful and funny! She's not only a great wife, but also a great mother. Our daughter's adore her. On a daily basis she tells them about Jesus, instructs them in godly living, teaches them, encourages their creativity, and much, much more. Amy, when you make your way to my blog again, know that I love you. Always and forever.
