Little Fingers of Life


Alleluia, Christ is risen!

What a joyous and glorious time of year. The daffodils are blanketing our yards, the lilies are gracing churches and homes with their presence and many other flowers are peaking out to see the world. Let’s not forget the wind telling it’s stories and the warm and cold temperatures at war, battling for their place in our days. The gorgeous colors are springing from the trees and the sun’s bright face is staring down at us in wonder and confusion, even as more teardrops fall from the sky. All puzzling over the crazy doings of us humans as we finally make our way out of our winter prisons to welcome these new found beauty’s to the world. They also bring with them a reminder of the new life and hope we have in Christ.

And during all of that this little guy brings about an ever constant reminder of the wonderful miracles we are given daily.

Here’s our little guy on Easter Day (I didn’t have any lilies to include in the photos, I’m sure he’ll be quite thankful for that in a few years, and I bet his daddy already is thankful.)

And then there are those silly old parents-



Gabriel Lukas


2 Months ago Gabriel Lukas was born on Feb. 1st and baptized on Feb. 26th, entering the Kingdom of God. At 7lbs 9ozs he was born very healthy and has continued to thrive. Our life has certainly been filled with love, happiness, change, sleeplessness, worry, doubts, joy, crying fits, grumpiness, sleep, and so much more. With the little guy now squirming around and keeping us plenty busy I’m still trying to adjust to a new schedule and find out what works. Naturally his schedule is in a constant state of flux making the adjustment all the more challenging, and all the more worth it. He’s growing way to quickly and putting on plenty of weight. It’s always nice to know that he’s healthy and getting plenty to eat. At 2 months old I’m already wondering just how quickly he’s going to grow out of his 3-6 month clothes as some of the onesies are looking a bit short in the body, he might be a tall one!

Are you ready? Feel free to sit back and watch him grow before your eyes.
