Edward is home from the hospital and sleeping like a baby. And by that I mean he wakes every two hours demanding food. One of the biggest question marks was how Chuck Bear would respond to his new brother.

An answer to that question came at dinner. Chuck Bear has a habit of praying before dinner. His prayers amount to him listing all the things he is thankful for. It starts with “Thank you, God, for our food” then meanders through his other favorites: “Thank you, God, for trucks. Thank you, God, for trains. Thank you, God, for Lewis. Thank you, God for excavators.” All the things a little boy loves.

At dinner, Chuck Bear added something new to the list. He said, “Thank you God for the bubba.”

I think they’ll get along just fine.

Husband. Dad. Pastor. I like to capture moments, pull their threads, and see what unravels. Lead well, read well, think well. And grace. Lots of grace.
