Some new thinkings...

"Thinkings" is a word that circulates around the Peek home quite often. It replaces those generic words like "thoughts" and "conclusions." Please don't feel pressured to remind us that it's not a real word. Don't worry--we don't use it in public and we try our very best to keep it out of Kevin's papers. But nonetheless, "thinkings" is our word and we like it.

Now that I've explained our vernacular, I can go ahead and get to the point of this little Blog. I've been perusing our Blog postings of late and realized they're a bit lopsided. It is true that we run 5Ks and go on hikes and try to get to Wal-mart and end up in Indiana (that only happened once--I promise!). But what is more true is that we want to be a family who strives for deeper things than just events and fun activities. And we want you, O faithful patrons of Blog-world, to be a part of that pursuit, to walk along side of us as we learn, struggle, and grow more into the likeness of Christ. In an effort to make our Blog more reflective of who we are and who we want to be, be prepared to find some deeper "thinkings" popping up in the near future. We'd love to have you along!

We're in! We Gerlts, who have our own definate vernacular, like the word thinkings. Can we add it to our list?
Looking forward to your thinkings. We're due for a good visit soon. Miss you guys-

"slickery" That is a adjective that my lovely wife uses occasionally to describe things that are slick.

I have no doubt that your "thinkings" will be ecouraging and full of insight, but I do ask that you guys will keep posting updates on all aspects of your life! It brings me joy to read about the zoo and hiking. I guess it just reminds me that siminary life is still just life.

I love you guys and am hoping to see you at the wedding :)
