This frees us to love unconditionally.

Dear Son, not feeling prepared this Advent. I want to be, should be, need to be. Only 14 days until our Savior’s birthday. The saving Grace is listening to continuous Christmas music since the day after Thanksgiving. Every song is a prayer.

Maybe the preparation is better than first thought. Maybe I’m being differently prepared this year. Are you ready?

Dear Son, White House protests must happen daily…

The White House protests
The White House probably has daily protests
passion for a purpose
passion is so thick sometimes it oozes from a person’s pores
don't judge
try not to judge the woman, or these boys

Dear Son, White House protests must happen daily…

Sorry you had to see and hear this. Hopefully, you will understand that freedom of speech doesn’t always mean we’ll hear nice things. And that everyone is entitled to have a voice, no matter what.

Dear Son, I hope you’ll forgive me

forgive and forget
let's focus on the positive things and forgive and forget the others

Dear Son, I hope you forgive my missteps, the awkward moments, the fumbles and other generally embarrassing things I’ve done.

And I hope you’ll remember the triumphs, the laughs, the learnings, the fun, the traditions and all the other generally really cool things we’ve done.

At The End Of The Day, We Must Figure This Out Through Thoughtful Prayer

Ready to go? Did we forget anyone or anything?

A little easier than herding cats…

The extra effort to be early provides unique views invisible to most…

The children and chaperones had a great tour…

Yeah, I wish I could have had a do over…

At the end of the day, God will never punish us for making a mistake in trying to do the right thing. Our son will never have to worry about not knowing how to apologize – I’ve modeled it far too often for him to forget.
