Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

We're having a boy!

Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.
(Psalm 127:3 NIV)

When I called my Grandma (that is, my mother's mother) back in March to tell her that Abby and I are having a baby, she asked, "Are you hoping for a boy or a girl?" Well, I tried to do the good thing and respond that I have no preference as long as the baby's healthy, but as I tried to get the words out of my mouth I realized how unconvincing I sounded, so I finally blurted out, "I want a son!" Subsequent to that conversation, as Abby and I talked about preparing for the baby, I realized that I really would be equally happy if the baby were a girl... but yesterday the ultrasound confirmed that we are having a baby boy!

We plan to name our son Christian Amadeus Lindsey.
"Christian" means "Christ-like" and "Amadeus" means "loved by God." These names reflect our hopes and prayers for our child.
"Lindsey" (which we have little control over) is, as far as I can tell, some Old English geographic reference concerning the place where my family was known to live at some point in the forgotten past.
