Over the last few months, Steve & I have been talking and reading a lot about the past century of African American history, lingering racial injustice & structural inequality, and the church’s role in racial reconciliation.
We’ve talked extensively together and we’ve talked with a few people in our church about how we can better address racial reconciliation in our congregation. Then, a few weeks ago, Steve & I got to attend the Stronger Together 2017 Justice Conference here in Oklahoma City.
I was going to write a post about something completely different today, but then the mail came this morning. Nike barked at the mean man for daring to deliver a package, and I went out in my pajamas (yes, it was 10:30, and I was still pajama-clad) and pulled the package inside. I eagerly opened it – getting mail is always exciting!
A few years back, my friend Sarah Jo posted about a tradition that she and her husband have for Valentine’s Day. Every year, she buys him a children’s book and embellishes it and writes notes in it and gives it to her husband as a sort of love letter.
Steve & I came back from Thanksgiving break on Sunday night both feeling sick, but we were so excited because this Wednesday was our ultrasound, and we were eager to find out our little one’s gender. We were both going to be so excited for a boy or a girl!
When we got to our appointment, I lay down on the ultrasound table and as soon as the exam started, we both saw it – TWO heads!
