Man, it has been probably a year or more since I have done a POTW.  As much as I love photography, it has been one of those things that gets laid aside when you have these two little ones by your side. 🙂  For those who do not know, I usually give a little personal update in my POTW posts.  And as far as photos go, the majority of them will be coming from my iPhone, so the picture quality will not be great.

Nolan is doing great.  He just memorized the fourth question on his children’s baptist catechism, learned to turn his John Deere battery-operated tractor, and absolutely loves doing this.  The picture of Aiden above was from Christmas time and was submitted to the Regis and Kelly show for their baby contest.  My wife thought it was her ticket to NYC.  Who knows where we came in?  I will just say he “just missed the cut.” Or something like that.

I’m coming up on two years of serving as a pastor of Grace.  It’s been an incredible journey so far, and I’m excited about what God has in store for us in the future.  We are living in desperate times here in SW Florida, with our county ranking #1 for the worst job market in the US and #2 in foreclosures in the country.  Needless to say, we are hurting as a community.  But such realities put the hope of the gospel on display.  Pray that we would be a faithful, compelling, and clear witness to the transforming power of the gospel and lead people to hope in more than what this life can offer now or what death can take later.

More to come later. I hope to be more regular with these POTWs. I kind of miss them. 😉
