Is that you???

I will answer this once and for all.

No!

 

The girl in the middle is not me, though we do share a striking resemblence.

This afternoon we fed Abbey turkey for the first time.

Her response?

An instant Wilson home video-clip classic:

What childhood foods did you absolutely hate? did your kids absolutely hate? did Lee and Beth absolutely hate when we were babies (this question is for you moms of mine)?

music monday: timeless duet of ‘praise hymn’

October 26, 2009 6 comments

Andrew Peterson is known in Christian circles for his incredible album “Behold the Lamb of God” (which is certain to be featured on the blog this upcoming Christmas).

One of Peterson’s songs is cleverly/cheesily (your call) titled “Serve Hymn”.

It is a really good song and a modified version has become a staple of corporate worship at our church – City Fellowship Church here in Jackson.

Perhaps I will say more about this song in the future, but for now I would just like to share a clip of an up-and-coming young married couple doing their own version of the song’s chorus.

Be warned, this may leave you speechless:

I think they could have a future in the business, but it seems likely that they will quickly return to obscurity with the passing of this fine young lady’s laryngitis.

We went to the pumpkin patch with the Autry’s and had a blast.

Here is a preview of what’s to come:

internet video conferencing: wilson edition

The other day I called Beth from work to see what was going on at the house.

I confess, I got to missing them and felt a little lonely, especially after I heard Abbey giggling and being silly in the background.

So I decided to hang up the phone and Skype my girls to really see what was going on at the house.

Here’s some of what I saw:

Beth doing something silly with her hair

Beth doing something silly with her hair

Beth doing something silly with her hands (I love Abbey's sweet little grin)

Beth doing something silly with her hands (I love Abbey's sweet little grin)

Beth pretending that Abbey has some hair - how silly

How do you take advantage of technology to stay in touch with your loved ones?

spotlight: every man needs a father

I think this is the first blog post I have ever read that made me cry.

Here’s a snippet:

“Every man needs a father.”

All men have fathers, for better or for worse. Some of those fathers misuse their authority as a father and cause brokeness in a young man’s life, be that by abuse or abandonment or what have you. So what about those boys?

If you want to see what made me (Lee) cry – and it will be obvious – jump over to the Prodigal Roamer blog.

Cryptic shout out: I love you too Dwight – and I am still incredibly proud of you.
