In the book of Malachi (the last little book in the Old Testament section of the Bible) God is very upset with his people. Basically, the beginning of the book is God talking to his people and explaining how things got so bad.
Now sure many people might guess that God would be upset if they forgot about him, or if they didn’t fulfill their agreements, or if they lied about him (all of which we see in chapter 1&2) but in chapter 2 we see another reason that God is upset. God is angry because the men of Israel have not cared for their wives in the way that they had promised to. God says that the person who dishonors his marriage covers themselves in blood. God doesn’t mess around—he is saying: sure the religious stuff matters but the daily life stuff is just as important.
As I begin church planting I can see how I might spend tons of time on church stuff and end up neglecting my family, but if I do that I’d be covering myself in blood! I’m thankful for this warning, and I’m thankful for my family.
This was from last month, when Gus’s “baby mullet” was just too much for me to handle so we got out the clippers and fixed the problem.
I’m not sure we are totally ready for bowls yet.

We spent the afternoon in Highland Park (the actual park). It was a lot of fun except for the fact that we were walking on a trail and there was a gate at the end of the trail that was locked so we had to walk all the way back.
Not those kind of raspberries.
Yup Augustine is bipedal. He had been doing the one-two-drop for a week or so but tonight he starting walking.

This is a bit late, but here are some pictures of our thanksgiving with the Horners in Indy. You’ll notice that we opened presents.
