Another Doggie

This photo is of Lydia holding our neighbor dog, Max. He is such a rascal, running away from his loving owner to the house where all the children are. Our neighbor knows to come looking here first when her doggie disappears. She told me the other evening that Max is happier and more willing to stay home now that they have gotten him a pet, a cute kitten they rescued and nursed back to health. Diddy the Kitty and Max sleep on the same blanket together, and “wrestle” with one another. I saw them in action, and they are truly great playmates. Still . . . We don’t mind having Max wander over our way once in a while. 🙂

Paedobaptism – Why?

Another site I love to read is the Reformation 21 blog. A posting today by Ligon Duncan is an excellent synopsis of WHY Presbyterians (of which I am one) baptize believers AND their children.

The various ministers who write for Reformation 21 do not agree on everything, but they state their beliefs with intelligence and graciousness, and sometimes with humor. 🙂

blue-letter-bible.jpgI very much appreciate Bob Hoekstra’s Day By Day Grace devotionals which are available on Blue Letter Bible. The devotionals are short yet pithy, and address many aspects of the Christian life. I find them easy to apply to my life.

Can you guess what he means by “unpopular” promises?
