Another trip! I am so happy for a week off from everything. For the first time in awhile GT & GSU have the same spring break so we are seizing the opportunity.

The full-timers lovingly prepared packets for us and I was just so freshly touched by our first day’s reading,

What does it mean to eat the manna? It means to enjoy Christ, to enjoy God’s Word, and to enjoy His truth early in the morning every day. After we eat the manna, we have the strength to journey in the wilderness. The early morning is the time to gather the manna.

Day 1 highlights (because I am now too tired to post anything more eloquent).

Tasting the church life

So RP and I are endeavoring/grappling/praying/seeking/failing/succeeding/trying to live the church life. Like the real life, practical, day to day experience of Acts. Not just in a church building but in our home. Not just as a social or charitable network, but sharing Christ, shepherding young ones, speaking the gospel, and building one another up in life. We are blessed to be under a wonderful ministry regarding this very matter, but we’re still not really sure what it looks like. Kinda like we have the recipe and the photograph, but we’re not sure how it all tastes when it’s put together.

But in the meantime we’re endeavoring and here are a few pics of this week’s effort 🙂

Introducing the newest Graham: Baby S!


and Baby S flys away…

Blending meeting in Chattanooga:


So this week was a lot of Baby S and the Grahams, but we’ll keep endeavoring and (if I can remember to take pictures) keep you posted.
