Fruitful


I would like to announce with great joy and thanksgiving that Jenny and I are expecting our first child. That's right... my beautiful wife Jenny is pregnant. Please keep us (all three of us!) in your prayers. I have caught myself frequently humming, tearfully at times, a song by Josh Garrels called Little Blue:
Who is like my child
Who’s so lovely and wild?
Oh, my little bird
By the river I have heard
My lover calls
In fall and spring
She says
Keep your eyes on heron’s wings
She’s coming soon
Let’s dance and sing
For the joy a new life brings

Strong and graceful, too
Like your mother
In red and blue
Love I never knew
Filled my heart
When I held you
My lover calls
In fall and spring
She says
Keep your eyes on heron’s wings
She’s coming soon
Let’s dance and sing
For the joy that her life brings


It's coming soon, let's dance and sing, for the joy a new life brings!
