The Breaking In of New Life

As a lot of my thinking has been fixed upon the arrival of our first baby in December I was reminded of a journal entry I wrote for Barclay Press in 2005. I wrote it after the birth of two children who are close to us. In it I talk a little about new life, and how God uses it to speak to us in sometimes not-so-subtle ways. I look forward to being confronted with the Holy through our baby’s birth and hope that I will respond humbly. Here’s the post if you care to check it out.
