transparency

"There is a beautiful transparency to honest disciples who never wear a false face and do not pretend to be anything but who they are." - Brennan Manning

So many things I want to say about this quote, but suffice it to say - life is too short to be anything but real. Be yourself. We don't have time to play the game of sorting through phoniness. Drop the one-sided (or two-faced) friendships. Move on. The coolest people in life are the ones who are just that: people. They don't try to hide it and look like 100% 24/7 edifying saints. What's the point of iron sharpening iron if there's no one around admitting they're dull?

a note of thanks

Hey there!

I just want to say thank you to everyone who has been calling, emailing, and messaging asking me how I'm feeling. I think pregnancy is the most frustrating thing ever because you feel too sick and tired to do anything but not sick enough to cancel life, so you just hang in-between feeling worthless. :P And since there are people out there dying of heart failure and cancer and whatever else, I definitely don't deem it important enough to put myself on a prayer list or anything. 

Needless to say, thank you for thinking of me and praying for me! Thanks to those who have already donated little cool things for Baby. I'm so thrilled to have started a little stash! 

I'm afraid if you still want updates you will have to continue to contact me myself personally because.....*drumroll*....

I don't dig the whole belly bump pic and "dear baby" post things. Some can pull it off without making it look stupidly cheesy or self-promotional. Some. Like, 1 in 5,873. 

So, thanks again and as they say in the South, bless your heart for caring about Chris's and my little cutie!

We're Having a Baby!!!


Lord-willing, we will have a little Marsceau munchkin this October! It's a little early to announce it, but with how gross I've been feeling, you guys would find out soon enough anyway.  So excited!!!

an enormous predisposition...

I am slowly but surely working my way through Josh McDowell's A Ready Defense. In the chapter I read this morning, I came across a quote I find very interesting and true.

     "The excessive skepticism of many liberal theologians stems not from a careful evaluation of the available data, but from an enormous predisposition against the supernatural."
