when the unexpected is good

Sometimes you wake up to see the sun rise and are met with darkness, clouds, a downpour of rain off in the distance.  Unexpected.  Sure, it’s not what I rubbed sleep out of my eyes to see, but the downpour left me wanting a drenching of my own- a Holy Spirit sort of reminder of …

new perspective

You look at me and tell me I’m awesome. I look at you and tell you “awesome” means nothing in the face of the kind of tired I feel many days. *** You see me dealing with medical care, appointments, and therapies and wonder how I maintain composure in the face of a life-long diagnosis. …

“what if”

I’m not normally a “what-if-er”.  I know the type because I have been the type. Over time I’ve realized that what-if-ing is just a BIG. FAT. WASTE. OF. TIME. And then, our adoption process began. And our home-building process began. AND we felt that ‘now’ (being the 2014-2015 school year) is the time to homeschool …

a time & a season (part IV of IV)

Oh my friends.  It’s time.  Time to post about the impending arrival of a new little one in our family. I will be careful in writing this, and probably sit with it a few days to make sure I’ve communicated everything clearly. I am going to tell this part of the story using excerpts and …

perfect timing

This week, I had the opportunity to organize our office closet. Yes, I said “opportunity”. You see, I actually like organizing closets and stuff. Really, I LOVE it. It’s true. As I was sorting through piles of things that had managed to find a home in there, I came across a gem… it was my …

good triumphs

Last night Rachel told Matt, and then me, about a dream she had.  Far from rainbows and unicorns, it was disturbing, but turned out to be an excellent opportunity to talk about the goodness of God. She said that she dreamed two men broke into our house, and were looking for the kids.  They found …
