My daughter turns 13 today–we have all teenagers in the family now.

I think our kids are just about the greatest anywhere–even as teenagers! I have intentionally avoided talking about them much here, as a matter of their privacy. If you only knew, though, how much they’ve gone through at school, and how they’ve had to learn to process pain and disappointment. They’re learning faith and forgiveness through it. That’s about all I ought to say… except we sure thank God for his work in and through them.

P.S. By the way, we’ve been on the road all week, visiting family and ministry partners in Michigan, which is why my blogging has been slow. We’ll be home in a few hours. (I don’t announce our travels here for the same reason I don’t hang a sign on our front door that says we’re gone.) My sister Kathy, who sustained a very critical head injury last September, is still progressing far better than anyone had expected. Cognitively she made a full recovery in a very short time. She could still use your prayers for relief of pain and for enough strength to be able to leave her wheelchair. Thanks.

  1. I’m on the other end of those all-teenage years. My oldest will turn 13 in about one year. Six years after that, my youngest will turn 13. Happy ‘Big Day’ to you all!!

  2. Happy Birthday!
    (well, it’s still April 12 here)

    My prayers for your sister, Tom, and for the rest of your family.
