Lunch with my boys

My Rocket! I had lunch with the boys today. Chick-fil-a was in order. Nuggets. Waffle Fries. Lemonade.

The gesture of lunch was simple but long-lasting. I can’t believe I have the capacity to love another human being as much as I love these boys. Thank you, Father!

Another tooth…lost…well, found, but lost


Christopher lost his fourth tooth today. The story goes that he had just finished school and was waiting at the car line, having his after school snack. While eating his blueberry bar, it fell out. He managed the whole event on his own, washing his mouth out, putting his tooth away (for the tooth fairy…OBVIOUSLY!) and continuing to eat his bar. He’s my little “molacho”! He has a small lisp, which, for some reason, all parents like.

He asked me in the car why we get so happy when he loses a tooth. “It’s part of you becoming a bigger boy. You start losing teeth, a sign of you getting bigger.” We’re all in the process of becoming. I’m grateful we get to share this with our champs.
He put his tooth in a baggy (actually, insisted on it) and is waiting for $5! Tooth Fairy is not in recession. ūüôā

David the percussionist

Ok. It’s been a long time that I’ve blogged about our family and I’ll discuss that later.

For now, I want to say how much fun I had with David today at his morning chapel service. We were both on stage playing percussion instruments. It was so much fun. I got a little teary-eyed when I saw and heard him singing and playing clave. I had a hope for a future with us all on stage playing and worshipping the living God. It was like I saw a picture of what the future may hold (or what I want the future to hold).
Here’s a snapshot of it:

Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, 
the Father, the Almighty, 
maker of heaven and earth, 
of all that is, seen and unseen. 

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, 
the only Son of God, 
eternally begotten of the Father, 
God from God, Light from Light, 
true God from true God, 
begotten, not made, 
of one Being with the Father. 
Through him all things were made. 
For us and for our salvation 
he came down from heaven: 
by the power of the Holy Spirit 
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, 
and was made man. 
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; 
he suffered death and was buried. 
On the third day he rose again 
in accordance with the Scriptures; 
he ascended into heaven 
and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, 
and his kingdom will have no end. 

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, 
who proceeds from the Father and the Son. 
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. 
He has spoken through the Prophets. 
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. 
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. 
We look for the resurrection of the dead, 
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
