Ecclesiastes 11:9

Be happy, young man, while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you to judgment...

I like this verse I heard at church a couple weeks was shared by a Moldovian youth pastor who said it was the verse that brought him to salvation. I, at first, thought it was a negative or sarcastic verse. But after more thought, I think that it is easy to correlate judgement with negativity. Yet, judgement simply means the prospect of divine praise or blame-so it's actually a verse that holds great promise and comfort. God sees both the good and bad things that we do-not just the bad. And of course, we all mess up (daily for some of us;-). I am thankful for such a loving, forgiving God!

Speaking of things we do, Tim was holding Owen the other day and he (Owen, not Tim) was SOOOO fussy. So, finally, in desparation, he covered his head with the blanket to decrease his stimulation and he (Owen, not Tim) calmed down and fell asleep. A little while later, he (Tim, not Owen) went upstairs and I was on the phone and I was wondering if he put Owen in his bed. As I looked around, I saw Owen's blanket on the couch and wondered why he (Tim) didn't take the blanket with him...low and behold (see picture one) the blanket was not just a blanket at all, but my poor baby.

Picture 2 shows proof after I uncovered his precious sleeping face;-)

Oh well...he's fine:-) We have a check up on Friday, which I'm looking very forward to. I will update then with Owen's latest acheivements;-)
