Rhonda’s Bday with some pics from 2016
So this is getting a little out of hand. We were not going to make Thanksgiving and didn’t ask anyone for a meal either. The kids old therapist Mrs. Carol and her husband decided to bring us Thanksgiving dinner a day before Thanksgiving. God is so so good. The food was great. We had a chance to fellowship and they prayed over us. They blessed the house and asked God to help us be a lighthouse in the community. I love that picture that develops in my mind when I think about that.
Here a short video of the kids thanking the Carol family just before Thanksgiving dinner. And pictures from games we played before the meal.
Just before the Carol’s came over we decided to make our rounds handing pies in the neighborhood. We had a chance to spend time with the Baum’s, St. Pierre’s, and Sipes’. Great conversation and awesome people. They were all saying they were supposed to bring us pie – in the words of one of my favorite Christian rappers Tedashii – everything’s in reverse. In God’s kingdom things are often in reverse.

Jada, Caleb, and Cruz
So wow. Found out this morning things are about to get a bit crazier. God has saw fit to bless our family with another little one but in a more traditional sense. We are happy with all the one’s who have been stitched in to our family by other means and we are equally as happy with the child that is growing in Rhonda’s womb.
Psalm 127:3-5 New International Version (NIV)
3 Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
Know for real talk I do wonder what God is doing. We are elated but I wonder how we are actually going to do it. With Germany on the horizon I have no idea how to interpret all of these things. God please lead me as I lead my family. I submit my will to yours. And when I don’t fully submit please help me. I pray you are glorified and your will is done.

Rhonda and I made video for Bethany Christian Services about African-American Skin Care. It was actually fun.
