Nathanael - 6 Months

giggles - Nathanael 6 monthsMy nephew is growing up quick. It sure doesn't feel like 6 months have passed already. Ness and Andy came home from Canada in December, so it's been great to be able to spend more time with them and Nathanael.

Nae has the most light hearted personality... even for a youngster he seems very accommodating and joyous. He's loving his solid food these days, getting into corm (yum), peas (yuk!) and all kinds of other blended delights.
I love my Mum
I find it easier to do the drive out to Ipswich to visit the family now that seeing the little guy is also part of the deal.

Why do we get it so wrong?

I did a Google Image search for 'Jesus' with Pastor Joe today as we were discussing cultural views of Jesus in regards to his sermon this week on God's Revelation Through Jesus (seriously if you're in the North Brisbane this Sunday come and hear the message at City North Baptist).

Anyway, the image search was quite interesting. How, over so many years, have we got the image of Jesus so mixed up? And we continue to do it today.

Here are just a few;

Honestly, who was the person who came up with the idea of blonde Jesus??

Pretty-boy metro Jesus has soft straight hair and trimmed bear in clean fashionable robes and hugs a lamb.... awwwwwwwwww

This one gets me... Feminine Jesus just looks cringe worthingly wrong with his blue eyes, girly face and ET 'phone home' heart...

Super cool Jesus gives us his best Fonzy impression...
