Samuel’s daddy drives a Jeep SUV, so it’s only natural that he should have his own Jeep, too. In fact, somewhere in his wardrobe is probably a onesie that says, “Crawl. Walk. Jeep.” Like father, like son.
That’s why we were thrilled to find a baby book called, Jesus Is with Me, the words of which can be sung to the tune of “Jingle Bells.” One of the lines in it says, “In a jeep! Beep! Beep! Beep! Jesus is with me!” That one reference made it a must-purchase. It reinforces the simple truth that Jesus loves and cares for children, and he is always with us.
But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
(2 Timothy 3:14-15)
Below are a few recent snaps of this little cuddle bug I adore so much. I may be brave and post a video someday of this silly “cheek thing” I do that he gets a kick out of. He’s on the verge of giggling every time I do it, especially when I combine it with bare belly zerbits. (His bare belly, not mine.)
Thanks for your continued prayers for his one kidney. About once every two weeks he has a really painful pee because of the calcium debris. It’s heart-wrenching when that happens, and we all just cry along with him. His appointment with the nephrologist is scheduled for mid-April, and we’re hoping to get some answers at that time.
Be blessed, and have a great week!

A keeper, indeed! I pray that the calcium deposits dissolve. God bless him and you. What a darling!
This morning as I was praying for Sammy, I asked the age-old question, “Why, Lord, why the little one?” But then I realized that, while Sammy’s parents and grandparents and doctors and nurses are seeing to him, and indeed the Lord Himself, the Lord is using Sammy to increase our engagement with Him. Surely Lord, there must be another way. But in the meantime…
Thanks for your prayers for little SamJam, Sandy. Much appreciated! I just love him to pieces and hate to see struggle like that. It’s only once every couple weeks, but it’s really hard to watch when it happens. We’ll keep you posted on the nephrology appointment.
