our little drunk ghost

so, i have a meeting all day today, but, before i hit the road, i thought i'd post a few recent pictures of our awesome little man. i realized i haven't put up any pics of him recently.
he is doing really well. he is talking so much - seems to learn a new word every day. here are a few bits of ridiculous cuteness that he brings to our lives:
-he often greets us in the morning when he wakes up or at other random times by zealously, "hey, buddy!"
-to say goodbye he sometimes says, "goodbye, see ya later, peace out."
-he likes to walk around the house with shoes on his hands (as pictured above).
-even more than he likes to walk around with shoes on his hands, he likes to walk around the house with a blanket over his head so that he can't really see where he is going. this is the best. he looks like a little drunk ghost who runs to all the walls. it is hilarious. he pretty much does it after every meal.
-he loves praying before meals and at bedtime and always ends with a loud "yay-men!"
-he loves taking showers.
so, there's a little bit about our son for today. i will try to post again tomorrow. have a good ides of march.
ps. yesterday was pi day (3.14) and we celebrated here by eating a wild rasberry/peach pie that shannon made. so so good. i love pi day.

That is awesome. At two years old, Jack is embracing the most important of Jesus' teaching, by telling everyone "peace out". That age is pure innocence and so totally cute.

The other night we had dinner with family friends. Their two year old decided that he wanted to sit on my lap (simply because I was closest to the cheese and cracker plate) and lucky me, he leaked. I love kids. (seriously, it's so cute when you get to give them back, and you can go home and wash your jeans) :)

i think i was more impressed with how sweaty his hair got around his face. my top three favorite concerts ever. switchfoot sounds better live than on the cd...and they are awesome on cd. great great energy. at one point they did Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" which was a hoot...and quite honestly, better than beyonce :) we did observe the vein which was impressive :) After seeing them in concert, i love this latest cd so much more as well. though they did play a decent amount from the Nothing is Sound cd. they also did Meant to Live and something else from an older cd (no legend of chin though) At one point they were asking for requests and someone asked for The Pirates Who Don't do Anything which i thought was embarrassing because thats not their song...thats relient k baby. i wanted Evergreen :) on this day of green. i heart switchfoot. (Copeland was really good too by the way!)

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged? 

we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name. 

the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into the …

running uphill in the wilderness (one step at a time)

back in early june, as part of an overall effort to get more healthy, i started jogging.  i was just kind of walking and running a couple of miles to start off, but over the last 4 months i've been staying consistent, which has helped me to run faster and further, lose some weight, and just generally be healthier.  on fridays, which are my day off, i try to run a longer distance, and i've been adding a mile every other week or so, which meant that today i ran 9 miles in about 99 minutes, which isn't great, but it isn't terrible, either.  mostly, it just feels good to be doing it, and to feel healthier in a general sense, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and so on. 

but there is one area that i haven't felt great about.  professionally, these last 8 months have been, without doubt, some of the most difficult in my 21+ years of full-time ministry.  now don't get me wrong: i love my job.  i really do.  it is so much more than just a job for me, but a vocatio…

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy.
