I pumped last night for the first time, no problems with that, but the problem is Zeke wouldn’t take the bottle this afternoon with Brian. He went five hours between feedings and he wasn’t even fussy. When I got home I tried to feed him the bottle too, he got so mad and cried. He knew I had the milk somewhere, but that bottle was not what he wanted. So—-I’m kicking myself. I’ve read to start bottles by the time a baby is 6 weeks and I just didn’t get around to it.
I have some brain function right now so I’ll share more about this weekend in Richmond. Brian preached on the wealthy and poor—-their relationship and what the Bible says about it. God is really stretching me in this stuff and I’m trying to get a grasp on it all. He preached on the Rich Young Ruler and focused on how we make our money and what we do with it. The Bible repeatedly teaches about giving to the poor and those in need. In this passage Jesus focused on how the RYR got his money–he got it by somehow taking it from the poor. The passage then focused on how God wants us to take care of our brothers and sisters in Christ–to sell what we have and give to them what they need. Acts 2 talks about the first church and how they did this. Anyway—that is a really tough topic to preach on and he did it. We just heard back a positive from the missions guy that people seemed to be discussing it and seeking further understanding. Brian was really hoping to create discussion on it all. So, we are trying to figure out how to apply all of this. We have some things to change and some more things to discuss when it comes to saving and retirement—it is just really tough, my culture has invaded my thinking of money and I’m really trying to see it as God wants us to see it.
The counseling is going well, but just really tough stuff too. If you think of it please pray–thanks.
