Part of Andrew Peterson's Resurrection Letters

"We welcome you in because we think you'll give us what we want. We believe
that our true motives are hidden from you--you who made the world with a
word. We spread our coats and wave our hands and cry "save" and you ride
with your back straight and your face drawn, indulging us because you don't
want to hurt our feelings. You accept our hosannas because you know that
even if the heart is false the words are true, and for now, that is enough.
You come in the name of the Lord. Son of David, you come to save us. You
come to save a fickle people, who one minute cry for help and the next cry
for blood, and it is both help and blood that you give us."

I was thinking about you today and telling Zac how I can't believe how you are choosing NOT to know the sex of your baby until it's born. I would be out of my head with curiosity - I'm sure you must be. You are much stronger then me my dear....
