Oh my son! You are growing so wonderfully, and I praise God!
He has such a sweet and charming smile!
This picture looks like one of my cousins!
Ethan's first tatoo from the IA State Fair; it's a dinosaur.
He was excited about it!
Standing and growing!
Ethan has very much enjoyed playing in this box since I brought it home from Aldis! HA
Ethan's wrestling match with his beloved dog Clifford:
No mercy for Clifford.
Oh naked babies are soooo cute!
Their skin is precious!
Oh my son, you are indeed growing up!
As I think about growing up, and God's perfect will that we grow up, how can I not think about growing up spiritually:
"15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body...makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love."
We have begun our fall Community Groups (formerly called bible studies), and we are so blessed to be able to host another year in the home the Lord has provided.
It is so wonderful how God created the body of Christ, universal yes, but also local, to have fellowship and to grow, becoming more like Jesus.
We look forward to another season to grow as our family presses on to know Jesus with the believers around us!
