“While we are blinded by carnal desires, the commands of God will appear rigorous; and we shall labour more to explain them away, than to obey them: but if once we adopt them as the rule of our conduct, their beauty and excellence will manifestly appear; and we shall be convinced that, to obey them is, to be truly happy?”
Simeon, C. (1832-63). Horae Homileticae Vol. 15: Romans (474). London.

Family,

Kai’s Birthday

We had a fun time at Kai’s Birthday party. They had a bounce house in the backyard where the kids rarely took a break from jumping around.

Kai was jumping along with many of the other kids.

 

 

Claire had a very hard time walking around the jump house with all the kids tossing her around. She had a moment alone in the jump house and was able to enjoy it a little more.

Matthew found a use for the jump house screen that I hadn’t yet seen. Of course, I don’t spend much time around jump houses, but this looked awfully strange to me.

Matthew gave Kai his first John Deere die cast tractor. Now they have matching tractors.
