“Coming to Jesus Christ is coming on His terms, not our own. The person who comes to Christ comes in humility, meekness, a needy beggar in spirit who hungers and thirsts for God’s righteousness, who cries for mercy, and is willing to be hated, reviled, and persecuted for the sake of his Lord (Matt. 5:3-12). The Lord may not take away comforts, money, or relationships with others, but all of those things-and everything else besides-must be given over to Him, to do with as He pleases. Otherwise He is not Lord, no matter how much allegiance to Him is professed.” John MacArthur

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.
