i know that you probably thought you'd come here today to find me celebrating the steeler victory and subsequent home field game against the jets in the AFC championship game. i know you clicked here thinking that you'd get a good chuckle at my ridiculous fanaticism, or at least some decently cool (although wildly amateur) steelers images about how they wanted it more and whatnot, but....
i interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you those breaking news:
my family currently consists of 2 adults, 2 kids and a dog. somewhere around july 23rd you will be able to change that number to 3 kids. yep. we're having a baby.
so as much as i would love to fill your screen with images of black and gold today, i'm uber-pleased instead to share this joyful news. we've been sitting on the news for a bit, and we finally shared it with our church yesterday and now with all of you today. i hope you'll rejoice with us in this incredible blessing: a new member of our family, and a new member of steeler nation (sorry, had to work that in there somewhere).
i hope you are finding your life as blessed and richly abundant as i am. peace to you.
(and on this MLK day, how about we end with a quote from the great man himself)...
"i love you. i would rather die than hate you."
(taken from a sermon called "loving your enemies")
