re changes

hmm. i suppose it was ambiguous (and, i confess, deliberately so) but mrs hope has instructed me to clarify that we are not expecting any numerical increase in our family unit in 9 months' time. rather the changes alluded to relate to our current positions of employment, and will take effect in a little under three months' time.

don't be afraid

almost every encounter by humans with the divine in the bible is marked by God's re-assurance that they needn't be afraid. i've been chewing on that this week, and i have to say that i have been struck by how re-assuring it is to know God is with us and on our side. we really ought not to be fearful with such a trustworthy God.

there are changes a-foot, ahead, around. while the world is undoubtedly a scary place, both mrs hope and i are strangely peaceful.

my mum cried when we told her. she was very happy.
