Sitting Pretty

Psalm 92:1-5

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
to declare Your steadfast love in the morning,
and Your faithfulness by night,
to the music of the lute and the harp,
to the melody of the lyre.
For You, O Lord, have made me glad by Your work;
at the works of Your hands I sing for joy.

How great are Your works, O Lord!
Your thoughts are very deep!

On a Firstname Basis

So we have gotten the question quite often lately, what we call our daughter… and then also how to pronounce it.

While it had never really crossed our minds that we would be asked this, it’s kind of fun to spell it out and set the record straight from the beginning. 🙂

Our daughter’s name is Evangeline. Yes, that’s what we call her. Nope, she doesn’t have a nickname. (Just like the rest of the family!) And as for pronunciation, it goes like this:


And it’s awfully beautiful, don’t ya think? 🙂

My Valentine Sweets

The most delicious sweets that I’ve ever had. 🙂

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
