It made me ponder for the rest of the night about what we do know about the future and about how Jesus will one day return. We do have specifics on the disastrous fate of our planet and the people separated from Jesus Christ. How often I fail to warn those around me of the future which will be coming soon, probably sooner than we think. Justin had a professor during seminary who was teaching on the end times. This professor, after all his extensive research on the "end times" said... "I am confident that while I may not live to see the rapture... but most of you in this room will. (pointing around to all the younger men) This thought humbles me, challenges me, and gives me a burning desire to more diligently serve the Lord with extreme sacrifice.
It turns out it was a 4.7 earthquake in Santa Monica, just big enough for us to feel in N. Hollywood. There were only reports of minor damage and injuries. Kalena slept soundly in her bed for the rest of the night.

Sara has some new developments in the past several weeks. Our favorite for sure are her sweet kisses. Now when you ask her for a kiss, Sara will open her mouth wide and head full throttle for your face (anywhere). It is amazingly cute to get such a sweet wet slobbery kiss from this little one who is just trying to figure it all out.
Sara also will hold any small electronic device or remote up to her hear (or the back of her head ??) and talk into it like a cell phone and she takes her shoes and puts them to her feet. She says "mamma, dadda, and ba ba" (for bottle)
She also says "Ohhhhh" and makes a face when she sees something she likes.
After that we headed over to our favorite little Indian restaurant in Burbank. We ate until we couldn't anymore then they brought out some Mango ice cream with a candle and sang "happy birthday" to Sara. She was the hit of the restaurant! Our waiter was particularly taken by her and couldn't stop talking to her. It was so cute!!
Partly because I want Kalena to know what it feels like to be at the dentist so she won't be scared when she goes, and partly because we don't have dental insurance right now... I have taken to once in a while scraping the plaque off her teeth myself with a little kit I bought. Justin thought this was cute and funny until I assured him that he was next.
