Here is the last of my Chicago photos. This is Susan. She is awesome. We met on Lookout Mountain, when I was in college and she was in high school. If there is anyone I want Huntleigh to grow up and be like, it would be Susan. I think Huntleigh has a lot of Susan in her, even as an almost three year old. Susan is not comfortable with the status quo in anything. Her heart is big and longs for justice and mercy to be fleshed out in the world. She challenges all things in order to get to the truth of the matter and I appreciate that, because it's honest. She gets the brokenness of the world and knows that the only remedy is Jesus incarnate. And she lives it. She'll soon be living it in Malawi and then, perhaps, Nepal. Susan, you're always a breath of fresh air and new thought. Thanks for sharing an expensive steak with me at midnight in a random suburban restaurant. It was so good to see you.
