Birthdays

Today marks a very special day. Today is the 164th birthday of Herman Bavinck. If Dr. Bavinck were with us today, he would, in fact, be the oldest person alive. It also marks the birthday of my father and one of my cousins (I won’t give their ages as they are a little more particular about the world knowing how old they are).

Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is an interesting holiday. While the story that is taught in school is the one of starving Pilgrims and Native Americans sitting down together for a meal, the holiday wasn't established as a national holiday that day. Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863.

Loving Where We Are

Taryn and I regularly look around and are so thankful and happy for this opportunity. The funny thing is, when we think about it, it can be hard to give the tangible reasons why we are thankful for living here specifically. I thought I would give a quick list of five reasons we love living here, and why we are thankful for the opportunity.
