We've been missing.
What's this "we," white boy?
Oh alright, then; I've been missing, but I do wish others had helped. Where have David and Joseph and Lucas and Gary and Andrew and Jake—all the guys we've invited to contribute—been?
Who knows. Christmas. New Years. Travel. Family reunions. Snow and ice. Visits from relatives. Global colding.
And babies—always more babies. Several little blessings have been sent to Clearnote, Bloomington, recently, but let's pay particular attention to that little boy you see there, born to our son-in-law and daughter, Ben and Michal Crum. Delivered at home Friday, January 3rd, Knox Quillan (cub) Crum weighed 9 pounds, 8 ounces and is our fourteenth grandchild (with another on the way in a couple months, Lord willing). Mother and baby are doing very well, praise God, and father and two brothers are pleased as punch.
With joy and thanksgiving to God Who closes and opens the womb.
