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.
Last week, the sweet ladies on staff at our church threw the boys a baby shower.
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.
Over Christmas, my very talented cousin Rebecca (you might remember her from the embryo transfer) took some maternity pictures of me. I was only about 22 weeks along, so I wasn’t showing that much, but she still managed to get some beautiful shots.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that we took a trip last week. We went with another couple (who is also expecting a baby soon) to Chicago as a joint babymoon.
