Ol' Levi Willy

Ha! That title will not make Momma happy. (Rach is not big on "Willy.") Tomorrow is my boy's 1st birthday. Levi William, like each of our daughters before him, has brought immeasurable joy to our home. He is all boy -- active and into everything. He's a pretty happy kid, pretty sharp, and pretty even keeled. We're proud of him.

As Levi grows, I'll teach him a lot of things. I'll teach him to throw a baseball. I'll introduce him to the healing powers of an Ozarks stream. But most importantly, I'll instill in him a love for his Creator, and His Word.

"My son, hear the instruction of your father . . . do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with the Lord your God."
