Life Emerging From the Road

Holly and I found out a little while ago that we are pregnant. 11 weeks pregnant today. Pretty exciting.

Just went in for our first midwife appointment a couple weeks ago. Got our first picture.

Meet the newest member of the Sharp family.



So, due date is October 12th. A fitting time for us as fall has always been our time of transition. We're very excited...very excited.

This is life that was birthed out of our pilgrimage...that's the coolest thing. All the ideas/dreams/visions for a different way of living that were planted in us along the way have produced life. Wow.

Congratulations...You now have a huge responsibility before the Lord. But, the effort it takes brings emense joy and maturity in your life. There are a few things in my life that have helped me to grow up...getting married and having children. Praise to our King for covenant children!
