30th Birthday

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up to be on the look-out on the blog around June 1st!  I turn 30 June 9th and wanted to do something special to celebrate.  I have decided to raise funds during the month of June for a group that is special to my heart.  God began to show me the plan for this in February and has been slowly revealing all the details since then.  Check back soon for more details and to help spread the word.  It will truly take help from lots of sweet people to reach our goal.

Details will also be on my Facebook page

I am so excited to see how God raises this money.  I am a little nervous setting such a large goal but I KNOW this is what I am to do and God can totally do it!

I cannot wait to share the details!

9 months home

Lucy, 13 months, 1st day home 8/5/11

Lucy, 22 months, 5/5/12

What a difference 9 months can make! As we were out with Lucy in the pool today, I thought back to Lucy's first day home. She was a tiny (16 pounds) little girl that was smiling yet so scared in her new home. I thought I would take a look back at that picture and when I did I realized it was exactly 9 months to the day. Today, as we played, she was talking, calling us Mommy and Daddy, running around, and having so much fun. Thank you Lord for the way you are growing us together as a family!

Save Me from Myself

Mighty God, who created the waters
but also the grip of an infant son
In some ways so visible and clear
In some ways shrouded in mystery
Unknowable, yet approachable,
Invisible, yet  breathable,
Save me from myself
