After weeks of not posting anything, I am back at it. It has been a pretty crazy time of year and looks like it will only get worse. Between renovations at the church, fundraisers, Houseboat Trip, and weddings, it might drive me crazy. I love it! I love the busyness and I love how God is blessing at Northline. There is still a whole lot of work to be done with our church, but I know that we are at least on the journey.
We have received an overwhelming response and support to the situation with our baby boy (see previous posts). The ability to talk to complete strangers and share with them about this season of testing that we seem to be in has been a great joy. I am starting to come to grips with the fact that I am not the same person that I was before this all started happening. Amy has felt the baby, whom we have named Caden Norris, move on several occasions for a little while now. Now, I am able to feel him kick. Some doctors say that they are not suppose to be able to hear, but Amy has said that on more than one occasion when I have been speaking she has felt him move more. I told her that everyone moves when I speak. They move to get comfortable so that they can doze off. We are experiencing different aspects of God’s grace each day. He does not give us one lump sum of grace and strength, but instead He gives us what we need to make it through moment by moment. I guess I will trust Him – He did create me. He might know what He is doing.
I want to thank everyone for their love and support. I know many people do not know what to say or if to talk about it. We are doing fine and you should act the same with us. Talk about the baby, his name is Caden. You must realize that the reason that God has made our paths cross is for some greater reason than “just because”. Maybe He wants to use us to help you or maybe He wants to use you to help and encourage us. I do not know what the case may be. Just be willing and I will be too.
Until next time…
