"Sinner," he cried, "Behold the head this thorny wreath entwines. Look on these wounded hands and read thy name in crimson lines." -Joseph Swain

Today we dedicated raising Andrew "in the fear and admonition of the Lord." Everything was going fine until I was handed the mic to say a few words. I got about a half of a sentence in before I was no longer able to speak. What I really wanted to share but couldn't because im a big cry baby is how greatful we are for the church...the whole church. Through the body of Christ, we have experienced the love of Jesus in a very real and meaningful way. You have been instruments of grace to which we owe a debt of love.
The good thing for me is that most days I really love the church, I love it with all its broken, imperfect, messed-up, sinners just like me.
Thank you Jesus for your church.

Last year my wife was pregnant for mothers day so that was mothers day .5, this year im calling it mothers day 1.0. Andrew wrote his mommy a nice little letter saying how thankful he is for all that Amanda does for him.
Lately the Chizzlewick blog has had the spirit of telling everyone how wonderful we are...now we would like to extend that to the Chizzelwick grandmothers. Amanda and I are truly blessed to have been born into families with loving mothers, so we take the opportunity to thank MammaMo and Grandsmomma Chadwick for all they have done for us. You both are special to us and it pains us that we cannot be with you today. Thanks for all you've done and continue to do for the Chizzelwicks.
Curt, Amanda and Andrew
