Vacation…Melanie and Cole and I spent the last week in Ocean City, MD and it was such a blessing to us. We realized that, besides our honeymoon 6 years ago this was our first real family vacation (just us). We spent the week at the beach and pool and had a great time. I got in a TON of reading and reflection on church stuff and even worked in a few design things. I am sure I’ll post some pictures in the next few days.

Adoption News… We apparently number 4 in line to get the refferral for our adoption! This is awesome and very, very exciting. Though, this means we need to come up with about $3000 more at a moments notice. We have a yard sale that our church is putting on for us tomorrow that i am sure will help a little..every little bit helps. Read more here

Some good reading on prayer… this week i finished up a few great books. Franciscan Prayer, Prayer, A Cry for the Kingdom.
