“In the media today, the Christian media, there’s too much triffling with God, too much slapstick, too much triviality. There aren’t enough tears. There isn’t enough seriousness. The Joy has a light silly flavor to it. Not the kind of flavor that out to be there when you have suffered and died with Jesus. We ought to be calling the world to a kind of joy which has tears on it’s face and can walk through dark valleys. Instead of trying to sound like the silly banter of primetime, drive time, world.”
John Piper, “Looking at the Kindness and Severity of God 2

Pee and Poop outside the diaper

I picked Matthew up to discover that he had pee’d enough to wet the diaper and make his blanket and bassinet a little wet. So I brought him over to the bed to change his diaper. Everything was going fine until I noticed a new look on Matthew’s face. As I look at him, he looks back at me, but I notice a stream of pee flying past his head and completely onto the other side of the bed! I called for Jenn to come and check out the long distance wet spot he made. She came with a towel to wipe it up and as she was wiping it up, he began to pee on her arm. Jenn screamed as her arm was being washed with Matthew’s pee. Simultaneously, he started pooping all over the changing pad. I thought it would be wise to block the stream of pee with the old diaper, but this just made a puddle of poop and pee underneath Matthew! He didn’t seem to be bothered by any of this. And most of the time this was happening, Jenn and I were laughing histerically. I wish I had a picture to show you, but I don’t. Our hands were full. So here’s a photo of Matthew and I.
