I’m sitting here in Starbucks in Bolingbrook, Il., for some quiet time with the Word and to use the wifi (and coffee too, obviously). It’s been a great joy to spend time with Steph, Frank, and the kids…a GREAT joy. They are all doing quite well. We had the chance to worship with them on Sunday morning. Their air conditioning wasn’t working either, but it was a rainy day and not too hot. It was encouraging to see how God is using Frank and the whole family in ministry here.
After church on Sunday we got the call from Tim II that Dana was on her way to the hospital, a couple weeks early, to deliver their third child. So, late Sunday afternoon, Claire Alyse Jordan was born, 6 lbs. 14 oz. with dark hair and eyes. She is beautiful! Everybody seems to be doing well. Marilyn and I can’t wait to see her in the flesh sometime this weekend. We are grateful for the miracle of technology so we were able to “see” her shortly after she was born.
Our plan is to leave Chicago tomorrow morning and head for Indianapolis to visit with Sarah, Joe, and the kids for a few days before we head for home on Saturday. So, the first couple of weeks of this “get away” was really about getting away, alone, praying, reading, reflecting, and planning. The last couple of weeks has been about getting away and seeing the children and grand children. So, I am looking forward to spending time with the Mc Daniels then heading home to see Claire…then worshipping together with you on this coming Lord’s day.
See you Sunday, Lord willing.
