Merry Texas Christmas Y’all

We’ve had a lot of fun this Christmas, in spite of me having an ear infection and our dog fighting a bout of kennel cough.  We haven’t done much, but it has been great having chill time with the family to play, rest, and generally relax.  GTB especially loved his new GeoTrax setup we got for him, and OTown and I have enjoyed it quite a bit as well.

I’m sure the rest of this season will include more pajama time, some fun potty training adventures (GTB has peed on the dining room chair three times already), and some good fun as a family.  Christ’s peace is reigning in our home, and I am thankful for the light entering into a dark world, that we might have joy abundant.  Praise the Son!

Although I was raised in the church and had a knowledge of God, I didn’t embrace Jesus until I heard gospel preached and lived out by some Young Life leaders. God has proven faithful and good to me since that day, even in great suffering and loss. I have learned to treasure Romans 8:28 as a wellspring of hope and truth.

God has blessed me with an amazing wife (Olivia), three sons (Micah, Hudson and Owen) and a daughter (Emmaline). Growing up in the northwest, the thought never crossed my mind that I would have four children who are native Texans. Despite landing in the south, I still watch Notre Dame games with my children every Saturday in hopes they will land at my alma mater.
