Weird Snake Phenomenon

Two mornings this week I have discovered two dead baby snakes near my bathroom. The first time we thought the cat must have dragged it in, but the second night, the cat was out all night and the door was closed.

Then, last night in the middle of the night, Spencer found one downstairs, under the kitchen table. This one was still alive. They are all about 3 inches long.

I sure hope this does not mean that mama snake is sleeping under my bed. This is so weird...

UPDATE: I think this is is a Worm Snake, or a Brohminy Blind Snake. We are up to 6 found in the house.

ChiChi's Baptism

It was amazing to witness the baptism of our dear friend, ChiChi, the other night. Over the last two years of knowing him, we have witnessed amazing highs and lows in his Walk. I am sure that I cannot even begin to understand what it must be like to walk in his shoes and try to Walk with Jesus. How must it be to have your family...your own mother, laugh at you when they see you reading your Bible? To be ridiculed because everytime they see you stumble, you are called a hypocrite? He seems to be walking strong right now, the strongest we have seen. If you think of him please pray for him. That he would:

~understand and live in God's Grace and Forgiveness
~rest in God's unconditional love
~be strong when faced with temptation
