My children’s deep interest, encouragement, and delight are prime motivations that keep me blogging. Recently, one of them requested I blog more milestones with a bit more detail. He wanted to be able to “look back” and find our memories.

So, with this in mind, I am going to try to be more faithful in recording such things.

In April, our oldest turned 15. 15! I am navigating new waters with teen-agers in my midst. It is exciting and challenging. We celebrate Micah with great joy!

though its waters roar and foam,
    though the mountains tremble at its swelling.
