Today we had the joy and pleasure of meeting Emily and James Mummert. It was so neat to finally see them in person and to get to know them a little bit better. I knew they were good people when I found them laughing on our front porch at our welcome mat which reads, “For Shizzle, Welcome To Our Hizzle” (an artifact from my gangsta days). It was so refreshing to see the smiles on their faces despite the very human broken hearts they carry around inside. When they spoke of their sweet son it was not with the deep anguish that you would expect (and certainly could understand). They instead spoke of Harrison with great pride, confident that they would see him again someday, and understanding that God has something great in store here. Harrison, a little prophet like Nora, inspires people by the thousands and will continue to do so for generations! That is definitely something to be proud of!
I had the honor of designing a tattoo for James in memory of Harrison. James just had it done yesterday and allowed me the honor of seeing it first before he publicly unveiled it. I think it turned out beautifully, but even more beautiful is what it represents.
Here are pictures from our time together:
Thank you, Emily and James for making the drive down to see us while you were in town and for bringing us lunch! That was so sweet of you and we loved spending time with you! May God continue to richly bless you!
Let me say first that I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith in him is being talked about all over the world. (Romans 1:8 NLT)
Here are some other pictures of random sweetness throughout the day today:
I was poking around in William’s phone’s picture/video gallery and found this really sweet video:
