As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Birthday blessings to a cool* seven-year-old!
Happy Birthday, dearest Owen!

Much love from Papa and Gran...

*I wanted to say "cute" instead of "cool" but Owen insists that he is NOT cute. (He hasn't been able to convince us.)  

Not long ago, this conversation took place...

BRIAN (Owen's daddy): Owen you are so cute.
OWEN (horrified): No, I am not cute!
BRIAN: Yes, you are.  You are very cute.
OWEN (louder): I am not cute!
GAVIN (Owen's big brother): I don't think Owen is cute.  At. all. 
OWEN (greatly relieved): Shew!  Thank you!


  1. Well, it is obvious that he IS cute. Lots to celebrate in your family lately. Happy Birthday Handsome Owen. :)

  2. He could have fooled me, but don't tell him so. He's seven months younger than Sam. Seven is a great age!

  3. What a cute, no adorable little guy. Love the gap in the teeth. Happy Birthday Mr. Owen.

  4. They grow up so fast! He is a "handsome" young man!
