Someone Turned 4 This Week!!

Coralynn Mae is officially a "big girl" now.  We know because she tells us 4-5 times a day.  Our tiny baby has become a bundle of personality, and we are so thankful for her!

A Word.

Worst kept secret:  I love words.  I really really love words.

Even more worst (hmm) kept secret:  I love my husband.  I really really love my husband.

Worst worst (time to stop) kept secret:  I'm obsessed with Jesus.  Totally obsessed.

There is nothing greater than the combination of the three.

And that was what took place Sunday morning.  Mother's Day. Such an unexpected gift.

Saturday night, we went out to eat.  Late Saturday night, Coralynn and Chloe began their fight with food poisoning.   Sunday morning, I got to deal with their illness while Tony and Camilla headed off to church.  (Carson was away at camp missing all the fun.)

I was so disappointed because Sunday was elder ordination Sunday, and Tony was going to become an elder of the church.  He's been a deacon before, and I don't pretend to understand the nuances between the roles.  What I do know is that this was different.  Early in the week, I got a real sense that this wasn't just a committee thing.  …

I want to tell you.

I want to tell you how much I appreciate each person who the Lord has brought across my path.
I appreciate you.  Each of you.  
I've been pondering a lot lately.  "A lot" in frequency and in quantity.
In the past few months, some very important relationships have ended.  Nothing dramatic or angry.  Just over.
Some of us will walk the same path forever. My family and closest friends are on this path for the long haul.  We'll be in relationship as long as we have breath.  Praise Jesus for you!
Other people in my life were in for a fleeting moment- to say the right thing at the right time, to love on us just as we needed it, to hold a hand when no one else was there.  I'm so thankful for your impact on our lives!
What I didn't know until recently was that some relationships last beyond a season but end before eternity.  People whom I spent much meaningful time walking with, and whose path split from my own.  It's a gradual process really.  A little distance.…
