This post has been put on hold for the past two weeks because the Lord gave me other words to share instead. But I'm very thankful it's being published today because it holds a very special place in my heart. Sunday, September 24th, was a bittersweet day for me. It was the sixth anniversary of

Each Sunday morning and each Sunday evening throughout the month of June, excluding Father's Day, a different person from the congregation would be featured in a video. They would speak of the faithfulness which the Lord
This past Monday, the 10th of July, was the birthday of our one and only! I can hardly believe he is now thirty-two years old! Wasn't it just yesterday Brian and I brought him home from the hospital? Didn't he just begin kindergarten two months ago, and then the following month graduate from high school?

This is finally the post that was supposed to be published MANY weeks ago, but kept getting bumped up because of life throwing us so many curve balls and the Lord totally "changing up" the posts! I was seriously considering trashing this entire post, but just as my finger was on the delete button, the
Well, this is still NOT the post which I had planned to publish this week! If you remember from last week, I had a post all ready to go, but God totally changed the entire thing. So I thought for sure that I would be posting it this week! But nope, life interfered again,
