Well it’s been a while since I’ve blogged so I wanted to bring everyone up to date on the life of the Lopers and share a few things that Andrea & I are so thankful for.
Even with times that are challenging financially as I search for full-time employment God keeps providing. Andrea & I have so much to be thankful for. We are thankful that God has provided freelance hours for me during these past several months while I’m looking for employment and Andrea is out on maternity leave.
I am so thankful for the way God is moving at C3 Church. We have so many people coming to know and depend on Christ during these trying times. I am so thankful to be a part of the Management Team that God is using to impact the community.
And last but certainly not least we are so thankful for our new little son Dallas. Obviously with Dallas celebrating his 10 week birthday today he has been keeping Mom & Dad pretty busy but he has been the bright spot in our challenging year. At 10 weeks he is wearing 6 month old clothing. As of last Wednesday he is 14 lbs, 10 oz and 25.3 (over 2 ft tall!) inches long. Dallas is totally off the charts for height & weight. It could be that his grandfather (Andrea’s Dad) is 6.5′ and his great grandfather was close to 7′ tall so we think he might have the tall gene.
So a mixed bag of good and challenging but God has been very good to us and as long as we have Him and family we will be fine!
