Skipped and blurred memories
I'm terrible about keeping memories during stressful times of life. While this picture was taken we were living with the inlaws, I wasn't pastoring, I was working odd jobs, and life was just plain hard. I had just left a stressful ministry position, made a cross country move, and was really wondering what God had called me to do. I was also in a period of growth/testing/refining about what kind of husband was I going to be - - a strong silent type, a depressed basket case, or a humble leader.
This is son #2 who was a mere 5 months old when we made the trek to the Left Coast into God knows what. I hunted for this picture to "repopulate" my memory banks with this stage of his life that is frankly a blur to me. I love him dearly and he is too loud, too smart, and too fun to forget now!! God has brought us a long way and it's good to remember and "forget none of his benefits."
