Well, sorry about the pics not being up yet. I have not had enough time as of late to justify my posting pictures. So I hope you will forgive me. We do have Gunnnar's birthday pictures, however they are awaiting my email box. I will put them up as soon as I do get them from the Patterson's.
However, right before we celebrated his first birthday, we had just arrived home from our conference in sunny and very hot Palm Springs. We LOVED the weather and we were greeted by our old friends from church and school. What a line up of godly men we heard from! Rick Holland, John MacArthur, John Piper, C.J. Mahaney, Randy Alcorn, and my favorite, Steve Lawson. The theme of it was Heaven and Hell. You can imagine the depth and glory of God that we heard through expository preaching, worshipful music, and godly fellowship. You can hear any of these sermons for FREE on http://resolved.org. John Piper's second sermon really lifted the veil of the glories of the cross, and of Heaven for my soul. What a time of worship the whole weekend was. If we are not living, in all things, for the conscience glory of Almighty God, we are wasting time and dishonoring the Savior! What convivtion and Grace we experienced!
If we are wasting time, we are wasting our life!
Soli Deo Gloria, Paige
