Check out my little men!
Now tell me if you can believe THIS! Luke will be 3 this month and Judah and Micah are 7 months old.

We are having fun at our house. Luke is such a big boy. He talks in very grown up language using phrases such as "actually, mommy, its called a jeep" and "as a matter of fact, I enjoyed it", but he still includes his little cute things like "Mommy, did you know that the airplanes go to the airporch? They do."

Luke, you make us laugh every single day and you are so much fun. You are so observant and clever that we've taught you what those words mean because we use them so often when we talk about you.

Judah and Micah are growing up! This is the month that they began waving and sitting up. Micah is very good at using the sign for "all done!" and Micah is also cocking his head to the side just to make us laugh. Already a jokester. Judah's wave is so intentional and charming. He is happiest just sitting in someone's lap. Both boys will giggle for apparently no reason, and think that Luke is the funniest thing. I have to agree with that.

Judah, you are so quick to smile. I love when you scream for no reason and then laugh like you are telling a good joke. You love to cuddle. You are also very impressively saying "hey" while you wave. I think that counts as a first word, don't you?

Micah, you love a good game. Peek-a-boo and tickling get you every time. You are quick to laugh and especially think Luke is funny.

Joseph is working on a little trick:
No need to call the authorities. Joseph is skilled in baby holding, yes, but he is also skilled in Photoshop.

A man named Finite awoke and found himself in a sinkhole full of quick sand. He was sinking very slowly and knew that he would meet certain death.

A man came along who had holes in his hands. The man threw Finite a rope and told him to grab it and he would pull him to safety.
Finite looked at the holes in the man’s hands and said, “Your not real.” “It is not scientifically possible for a man to live who has holes in his hands.

The man with the holes in his hands looked at the guy a little puzzled and said, “You are in a sinkhole and about to die. Your response to my help is to say I’m not real?”

Finite said, “Well, I like how warm the sand is and I really don’t want to get out. Second, I know I am having an illusion because it is not possible for a man to have holes in his hands and still help me out.” Therefore, morally I like my plight and scientifically, you don’t exist being a mere projection of my mind.

The man with the holes in his hands said, “Listen, I was sent here by my father to help people out so please let me help you! I will take you to my father’s mansion where you can enjoy life for eternity. Obviously, death was not able to hold me in the grave because the holes in my hands are proof that I overcame death. I now have the power to save you so grab the rope!”

Finite put his fingers in the ears and said, “Now I know I am hearing things because there is no such thing as eternal life…Everyone dies so I am going to take my turn and just enjoy this warm sand until the end.”

The man with the holes in his hand said, “If you won’t grab the rope, then I won’t be able to help you…please, please take the rope and I can pull you out. Have faith my friend.”

A few moments later Finite sunk into the quick sand and out of sight. Finite was surprised that he did not die as expected. He just sat there surrounded by sand, unable to move, unable to breathe, unable to talk with his fingers in his ears. Finite tried to comfort himself by thinking, “I would rather stay here for eternity than believe that the man with the holes in His hand could help me. Faith in that mirage is irrational!!

So Finite sat in the quicksand for eternity. Day in and day out for eternity Finite was always thinking about the man with the holes in his hands. He would comfort himself thinking, “It was better to not have faith than to believe something that didn’t make sense.”

The man with the holes in His hands continued to call him for the rest of eternity; however, Finite could not hear his voice because he had plugged his ears.

The Lesson

If you are not with Jesus, you will be thinking about Him for eternity anyway… so have faith.
