We have a tendency to lose track of time. Life catches up with us. We work and play. Spend time with friends and family. There never seems to be enough time to do all the things we want to do. We are bad managers of our time, but for the most part we are just to busy.
Well it’s been almost five months. We had our second son in January. His name is James Adon Graves. He is named after his maternal grandfather and paternal great-grandfather. The reason for the odd spelling of Adon, as opposed to Aidan, Ayden, etc., is we wanted a slightly unusual biblical name. I really liked the name Adonijah because it means “My Master is Yah.” Yet, we shortened it to Adon. He is six months old now, and he loves his big brother Isaac. He smiles at us, but squeals at Isaac. I am an only child, so seeing siblings interact is a wonderful new experience for me.
My sister-in-law recently got married. I was privileged to be the Best Man. I’ve known him his entire life, being brought up in the same congregation, and have known my sister since she was ten. They are a wonderful couple, and I am so glad that they are in my life.
I am presently reading “What Did You Expect?” by Paul David Tripp and the Gospel Advocate Commentary on Romans by David Lipscomb and J. W. Shephard. I’ve recently read “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy” by Eric Metaxas and Timothy J. Keller. I loved the book, but evidently there are others I need to read. Also I have read “Reading Romans” by Robert F. Turner, “Religious Affections” by Jonathan Edwards, and “Brothers, We Are Not Professionals” by John Piper. I’ve got at least two more commentaries that I want to read on Romans (Lard, Hamilton), and “Crazy Love” by Francis Chan.
I have a new blog that I really enjogy, Bible Design and Binding. Be forewarned, that large sums of money could be lost after reading this blog.
I will have a post up in the next couple of days containing an article by Kevin Kay entitled, “‘Legalism’ Is Not A Four-Letter Word.” This was published in this month of July by Biblical Insights.
