Something Missing

Ben had an eye appointment earlier this week. His eyes are stable and doing good. We are glad for that. Dr. Jen was pleased. In fact she said she would rather he not wear his glasses at basketball. So tonight at practice he didn't wear them. He looks so strange to me without his glasses.

The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, as it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way” “a voice of one calling in the wilderness,‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’” And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.  Mark 1:1-4
