ANNOUNCING MY NEPHEW ZACHARY!







SO proud am I of Becca, Sam and Zach! I just talked on the phone with Sam, and he's such a delightful Dad! The joy and wonder of Becca and Sam becoming Zach's Mum and Zach's Dad is such beauty - it's hard to find words, and yet somehow this miracle is more fully word than most of life, entwined in that word which was in the beginning, from which came Sam (and I remember the day of his birth!) and Becca, Zach and Cosette, Eowyn and Eddie, Bastian and Bump...

Home, by sea, to Seattle...

And Eowyn...

And Coco!

This stoll was made by children set free after being trafficked in the sex trade. I love the redemptive beauty and healing and hope for the suffering

Our lovely old friend Dave Sellers!

"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

Father God
You waited
Through the long hours of agony
When he was robbed even of the sense of your love, your presence,
when the sin and disease and hatred and darkness overwhelmed him so greatly
He was wounded for my transgressions

(from the Celtic Daily Prayer Good Friday Ritual Katie and I are saying together)

Eowyn is old enough to swim in the pool without a grown-up, AND to dive off the board without a life jacket - and she did!
