But, in my defense*, spelling is kind of an artificial skill anyway, right?
*Just took four tries to spell "defense" — pro tip: there is no "c".

- My wife and motherhood are going to mesh well together. Like, insanely well.
- A double-wide stroller (combined with gravity and a hill) is potentially a deadly weapon. Wield it carefully.
- I have some kind of paternal instinct kicking in hardcore. "Feeling like a dad" is something I say when I feel great about something.

I write about prayer as a pilgrim, not an expert.From the author description for Randy Alcorn's Heaven:
Dr. Randy Alcorn is a leading authority on Heaven.The difference between a pilgrim and an expert (or authority), is that, though both spend a great deal of time and energy seeking knowledge, the expert stops at some point and says, "I have conquered this subject. I know all this is to know."
The pilgrim is ever restless. But in that restlessness, she continues to uncover truth — long after the authority has declared the case closed.

Thank you for this woman. For this home, this life. You have wrapped your arms around me. You have taken care of me. And times where my head is pulled out of the dark clouds around it, I see what you have done. And I feel it. I feel very taken care.
You are my shepherd. Goodness and love will chase me. Goodness and love will chase me.
Goodness and love will follow me. All the days of my life.
I was taken care of when I looked at the little pirate lord on his island. And I am being taken care of now.

For Mary Poppins.
For my book.
For a Shakespearian passion project.
Her hair. And what she's like with a little wine in her. My playful girl.
For the satisfaction of flipping switches.
That the bus waited.
For the trust put in me.
For danger. Danger is so deeply important.
And for that reason: That Papa played shuffleboard last night.
For reconnecting with my old friend. We scratch the topsoil of our friendship and found it still fertile.
