my dear, you've captured the essence of the writer's desire to live fully present, and the tension to share that inevitably bursts into the world as words. i'm so glad you are back at the writing and sharing, because i have deeply missed your insights. and i should say how thankful i am for the pictures of a certain long-anticipated girl :)

it's hard to know where to begin when so many things in my life have changed drastically in the past five months. things were moving so quickly as the Lord began to unfold these changes that i was simply attempting to embrace and live fully into each. opportunity to catch... Continue reading

i smashed my pinky finger today, but it was for a good cause. i'm starting a garden, and while moving a boulder...well, you get the idea of what happened. you see, my recent energy, excitement, and spare moments have been devoted to getting a garden started up and growing. it's... Continue reading
