We did it, see above


I related Genesis 22 to my own situation with my son Isaac.  When he was diagnosed with Leukemia I felt angry at God for making my son sick.  Then after reading this scripture again it helped me understand that I needed to do as Abraham had, and put all my faith in God.  I have continued to try and do this better everyday and just like this scripture God has spared my son Isaac as he did Abraham’s son.

“When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an alter there and arranged wood on it.  He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the alter on top of the wood.  Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.

But the Angel of the Lord called out to him from heaven “Abraham! Abraham!

“Here I am” Abraham replied

” Do not lay a hand on the boy” he said “Do not do anything to him.  Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.”


  • I know nothing about soccer (I was a baseball player), but my son seems to be pretty good at it for 5 years old.  He scored a goal in the game with a sweet deflection off his knee.  Ronaldo was suggested as a name and I didn’t realize until I looked it up later that he is the best soccer player ever.  It just so happens that my father and grandfather were named Reinaldo (close enough). Another serendipitous F3 nickname that gave me good feels when it happened.
