To my nephew:

Tuesday, April 14, 2015




To my nephew,

I am in the delivery room anxiously waiting to meet you. Your grandmother is here in the delivery room, while your father stepped out to the vending machine. Truth is, he's too excited and too nervous to sit still. 

There is something you don't know, and might never fully understand, and that is the extent of our love for you. We prayed for you for five long years, and God has finally granted us the honor of welcoming you to this world. 

You have been blessed with two exceptional parents. Your father is the second best man in the world, the first one is your grandfather (he raised your mother and I). Your father is kind, honest, smart, humble and a man of honor. You are going to learn so much from him! Your mother is loving, caring, strong, wise, diligent, an amazing sister, an amazing daughter, and an amazing wife. I cannot wait to see her play the role of mother.

The photo pictured on this post was taken on our last family trip, the one we took on December 2014, five months before you were born. Your mother and I were sitting on an airplane 36,000 ft above ground. Elizabeth (your aunt), and I were trying to negotiate the seat next to your mother's seat because she is just the type of person you feel safe around. 

My little Adam, when life gets turbulent remember that you have been blessed with the best co-pilots in the world (your mother and father). Remember that we prayed for you for five years. For five long years the world waited for you, and you are finally here. You are more than special. Be kind and courageous, the God who gifted you to this world will protect and watch over you all the days of your life. 


Cannot wait to meet you,

Your Auntie Who Loves You to Pieces

Easter Sunday

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

 


 
Easter Sunday is my favorite holiday of the year. It's nice having a day to "officially" celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. My Easter Sunday traditions involve putting on a little Spring dress, attending church to celebrate the life of my savior, and then sharing a meal with family or friends.
 
Do you have any Easter Sunday traditions? I would love to hear.

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. (Proverbs 31:25)

A woman at rest in God is at peace with who God made her to be. She is fearless, and unstoppable, and so she can laugh at the days to come. She can do these things because she has placed her trust in God, and not in her own understanding… She knows who holds her future and who controls her destiny. She finds rest in Jesus because she is living according to His will.

As I get ready to celebrate Christmas and to welcome the New Year, I can't help but feel my heart explode with gratitude for all the blessings my family, and I have received on 2014. On this upcoming year, I want to make obeying His instruction and resting in His promises my number one 2015 goal.  I am so excited about the new year, and cannot wait to see His promises manifested in my life.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Purgatory Chasm

 According to Harvard Forest, leaves change color during autumn because the amounts of pigments change as the leaves prepare to fall from the trees. To say that I find this process fascinating would be an understatement. The process of letting go, and holding on -that is.

Letting go seems so easy, all it takes is determination, the simple act of making a decision to move on, to let nature take it's course. But holding on requires patience, and it is in patience that we truly realize how strong we can be.


The Bible teaches us to let go of everything, and to hold on to Christ because it is in letting go that we die to ourselves as we learn to live a life guided by Him.

For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” -Isaiah 41:13.

There is so much beauty in letting go, but so much strength in holding on. In holding on to Christ, we truly learn to let go.
