the wait

2017 finds us in a small, unkept waiting room. it's lamp shines an eery glow of uncertainty and casts shadows of doubt across the walls. it's scary here.  we are believing that God is even now doing a great work on our behalf. we are choosing to trust in the faithfulness that we've seen from him in the past, but not knowing how he will move or when he will move is proving to be quite paralyzing. there is work to be done here in the wait and so we get up, we do the hard work of plowing the field and baking the bread, even as we pray for a miracle.

in christ alone, my hope is found.


he is my light, my strength, my song.

 when they're all doing something quiet together i always, ALWAYS take a picture. 

this cornerstone, this solid ground

 best cousins in the world. this is just fact.

firm through the fiercest drought and storm.

 right outside their little prairie school.  check out that view.

 what heights of love

again with the quiet togetherness. in-between squabbles of course.

what depths of peace

he is a giant.

when fears are stilled

remember that one time when we built an enormous fort with our cousins? 

when strivings cease

my comforter

 i'm telling you, i'm a sucker for peaceful moments. i look for them always. 

my all in all

favorite homeschooling mommas. favorite homeschooling mentors.

here in the love of christ, i stand. 

 when i take her to starbucks and we play fraction war. 

 couldn't love beautiful feet books any more.
