“Do you not know that if you yield yourselves to any one as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?” -Romans 6:16 RSV

I’m reading The Crucifixion by Fleming Rutledge right now and this passage from Romans jumped out at me in her discussion. We become a slave to whatever we yield ourselves to…this can be bad or it can be good.

I’m going to be looking for where I have yielded myself…for sure.

Four Years Old!

This guy. Four years of changing us from the inside out and outside in. Loving, tender, brave, silly, fun, curious, passionate, smart, and on and on. I’m so thankful God chose us to be your parents. You are wonderfully made and your Mom and I can’t wait to live the adventure of another year with you. We love you Harper Ellis and Happy Birthday!! 🎁🎉🎂🎈

New We are the Wards Vlog!

I really want to try and get the vlog going weekly again. I ❤️ sharing but also ❤️ having them to watch back on. Especially Harper’s growth. So, here’s to trying! (If you’re wondering it’s just the time factor…the editing…and the need for sleep…how did I do it for 1 1/2 years five times a week?????)
