"O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
for His steadfast love endures forever."
(Psalm 107:1 NRSV)

This is my first nephew, Ethan, with Grandpa and Dad - the guys. As I said before babies seem to be popping out all around us - which does lead to lots of pooping.

The mysterious gift of life continues to induce awe within me. Here is new life, full of hope and potential. As we approach our celebration of the Giving Gift - that is the Spirit which brings the transformational presence of God into the life of the community - let's remember that the Spirit brings us into the life of God through Christ - filling us with hope and potential. It is all because of His steadfast love.

That is what Ethan means by the way - steadfastness. May the steadfast love of God pursue him and overtake him all of his days and may the Spirit make him steadfast and faithful in responding to God's grace; may He do the same for us. Until next time - Blessings ~ RLS
