Okay, so Chelsey has been a little preoccupied the last week or two so I thought I’d let you all know we are still alive and doing fine. Eva turned 1 month old today which is pretty crazy. It has gone by quickly but in some ways I can’t remember life without her. The last month almost feels like a lifetime. I must say, she is pretty amazing though! She’s smiling a bit now and has grown a lot. She’s still eating like crazy which keeps Chelsey occupied most of the day. She isn’t playing concertos on the piano quite yet but I can tell she wants too. My favorite thing to do is sing to her. Im not sure if I’ve actually sung a real song yet or not. I usually make them up as I go and they consist of lyrics like “Eva Marjorie, you are so pretty, I love you very much, your are so pretty, pretty little girl, most pretty in the world”. All this rhyming has got me to thinking about a possible collaboration with snoop dogg or ice cube at some point. Anyways, life is good right now. I am loving my work with the church here in Victoria. Things are not always perfect, but most days I love coming to work. There was a time in life where I didn’t think that was possible. Lately my heart has been filled to overflowing with love and appreciation for God and His guidance of Chelsey and I to this place in our life. At the same time, I also feel like God has blessed us so much that there has got to be a good challenge waiting just around the corner. I’ve felt a growing awareness that life will not always be filled with such joy as it is right now, and so I’ve found myself savouring each small detail of this phase in life. Ive also been trying to let the faithfulness of God, which I can see so clearly at the present time, soak into my heart so that if challenges do arise, I can look back and find trust in Him. But realistically what challenges could possibly arise. Eva might be the first child in history to not provide a challenge for her parents. It could happen.
Until next time, keep fit and have fun.
