Theres nothing like sitting on the edge of a vast body of water to remind you of your place in this world. Sometimes I think of what it must look like to zoom out of where Im sitting much higher above my head to galaxies higher than Ive ever been. I am weak but Jesus is strong. And He loves me? Me? Tiny blip on the earth me? . The truth is sometimes I think we all think were taking up too much space. But when we consider Gods perspective the space we take up is just the right amount for the…

#FathersDay is a mixed bag in our home. On the one hand its a day of sheer joy celebrating the gift God has given us for the privilege of my husband being a dad himself. On the other hand there are painful reminders of loss for both of us...one dad not here because of cancer the other because of sin. . I found myself pushing my toddler the buggy the other day searching for both Fathers Day & Birthday cards for my husband. (His birthday falls on Fathers Day this year.) As I squatted down to…

Im strong! my 2year old exclaimed while flexing his muscles and holding something much heavier than any toddler should be able to carry. We all giggled and affirmed that yes he certainly is strong! . Reflecting on that exceptionally cute moment I realized why he said that. Its because we tell him he is strong. The words we speak into him are remembered and are becoming part of who he is. . We all have words that people have spoken into us both good and bad that shape who we are becoming…

Its June and Ive finally got a breath to share what word I want us to focus on this month: remembering. . Remembering things like... . Those in your great cloud of witnesses that are cheering you on in your race from Heaven . Why you fell in love with your husband or wife (if applicable ) the vows you made and to be intentional to let your spouse know you love respect and believe in them . To teach your children and children in your life that youve been entrusted to influence as you go about…

Ive been sorting through thousands (literally because Im THAT mom) of photographs from my sons second year of life as his birthday approaches next week. They say not to blink. Ive thought about putting toothpicks in my eyelids to try not to but that sounds too painful so sometimes I do blink. These photos show me just how many times Ive blinked over the last year. My blinks have been like the shutter of my hearts camera I suppose. . As I tend to the curating of our first memories with him Im…

Tending. Thats just what my Granddaddy did in my life our family coming alongside to serve #BillyGraham  and for so many others. Hes on my heart today remembering his home going to Heaven 17 years ago. Read a few things from my two part series ( #linkinbio ) called Lessons From My Granddaddy & be encouraged. .  We all mess up along the way. None of us reach full holiness until we pass through the gates of Heaven. Yet on the journey to glory the process of being made holy and more like Jesus…

Tending. Thats my writing topic for this month. One of the best was we can spend our time is tending to little souls that have as big of a need for Jesus as we do through VBS. (Locally and globally).

My husband is outside mowing the grass clipping dead bushes trimming live ones and evading snakes today after work. Myself? Ive been putting the chicken nacho ingredients in the crockpot making the sandwiches trying to create equal parts of whimsy and rule following lessons for the babe putting my book in progress in a binder month long meal planning and supervising a pickup for the neighbors today. Today has been filled with all things tending. . Whats my point? We all have things to tend…

My focus word for the month of May is: tending. Its a good one for all of us I think. . What has God called us to tend to in our world? . What are you tending to today that will outlast you for generations to come and even eternity? . Whom are you called to tend to like a shepherd tends to sheep? . What tend(encies) do you need to lay down at the Good Shepherds feet? . Are you letting the Lord be your shepherd and do all the things He said He would in Psalm 23? . Are you watching Him attend…

All the pouring out and all the pouring into we spend our time doing? All the labors of love. All the listening. All the speaking. All the making. All the putting in order. All the going. All the staying.  All the sleep loss. All the resting and waiting. Is it worthy it? . Yes. A thousand times yes when Christ is our reward. . You cant hear it yet but when Heaven holds your hope your ears will one day be tuned more crisply than even the strongest radio stations signal. . All the pouring in…

My son and I have had a little side project going since January. We planted some flower seeds in a pot & have diligently taken turns watering it for about three months now. . At first I wondered if wed really ever see growth. Im not exactly known for having a green thumb. In fact Ive had a black thumb of plant death for most of my life. (Sorry lady who once had me plant sit. I hope your plants made it!) But about twelve days into it we saw tiny little sprouts and got super excited. . Those…

A year ago today this was still our home. The events that made this picture so astounding had not yet happened yet. A year ago today we had just signed a very complicated dotted line to buy our own home after finding out to our disappointment that our lease would not be renewed for the home in this picture. We were angry betrayed hurt exhausted and desperate when we got the letter that told us we would need to change addresses. But God knew all along that there was more to the story than we…

I was pouring over options of what to see. It had been only what- 12 hours since we even decided to go away to D.C. for the weekend. It had been a rough day. It had been a rough week. A rough two weeks. A rough month. A rough number of months. Trouble has surrounded us by no choice of our own without end. We were tired of it and needed a respite from reality. We longed for a change of perspective. . Pondering what plans would work the best for our family of three humans (one being a tiny…

April showers bring May flowers they say. Weather patterns arent always predictable though are they? Here in Virginia they are calling for SNOW on Saturday. What?! But as we ease into April the word on my heart and mind goes back to what the month is usually known for: Pouring. . Where we are headed this month has to do with thoughts like these: . What and to whom are you pouring out? . Who and what are you letting pour into your life? . What do you do when trouble is pouring down on your…
