My friend Jessie is going to have a baby in about a month. This last Sunday, I attended a baby shower held for her. It was just crazy because I kept on thinking that the next time I see her, she will have her baby, Ari Joshua.
This is also especially exciting because Jessie and Jammie are going to be going to Ireland and planting churches with us. I'm really excited to be able to babysit for them from time to time. I know that I will be missing Liam Morris, (our best friends Katelyn & Tyler Morris's son, who we hang out with all of the time) so I will be glad to have a little baby boy around. Not that Ari, will take the place of Liam, but at least there will be a little guy around.
I know I am going to have to leave my family, my church, my friends but mostly I just think about planting churches, so when these thoughts cross my brain about actually leaving... I try not to focus on them. Following Jesus takes sacrifice and this is mine. Yet, Jesus is so good to us and our friends Jammie, Jessie, and little Ari are going to be coming too.
God is good, all of the time.
