Isaac's 3rd month

Here is our boy. Look how awesome he looks. I am so proud of this little guy. He loves to eat and eat and eat. And he loves his little bathtime.

Chubby baby

Here is the baby boy tonight, so happy to see his daddy...

Romans 8

Romans 8:1 tells us that there is no judgement, no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. The middle of the chapter tells us why, that God chose us and he predestined us. The end of Romans 8 Paul tells us that that nothing could separate us from the love of God.
Eternal Security: what a wonderful truth of Scripture. I do not need to feel worry or doubt because God has saved me and sealed me. The assurance of salvation is as important to understand as salvation itself. If I could lose my salvation, then what good is the salvation in the first place? Romans 8 tells me very practically, that salvation is through the finished work of the cross, where Jesus Christ took our place.

Pack Attack

Well, we lost another one yesterday. I say "we" because I feel partly responsible for the loss.
As our boy Favre was driving for the game winning touchdown, I could feel the all the years of glory and victory returning to Lambeau field. I was so excited, I could taste victory. And that is when I did it, I cost us the game. How you ask?
I did the touchdown dance. Yes, I did the touchdown dance before they scored. I picked up Isaac and was holding him and we were laughing and dancing together. It felt like 1997 all over again. Favre was 27 and winning 3 MVP's, and Brooks and Freeman and Dorsey and Edgar were scoring touchdowns, and Chmura wasn't in jail yet, and Reggie was sacking the QB and proclaiming Jesus Christ...
But it's not 1997. It's 2006, and those guys are gone. Well, Brett got hit, ball popped out, and the big lineman from Green Bay couldn't hang on to the ball. I know he feels bad, but it sure looked liked the old game "grease watermelon". Well the Rams got the ball, and the Packers lost. And Isaac cried. and cried. and cried.

Getting Bigger

here is our little guy: he is getting bigger everyday
