Life

Hope Springs Eternal

Hope… such a little word for such a huge concept. This life can just leave us feeling as though it is one always going to be one long, dark winter-dry, gray, bare, and bitter. But then, we catch a tiny glimpse of spring with its new life appearing. I notice the tree in our front yard with tiny […]

Let Your Light Shine Before Others (Hearts 4 Hannah Year 6)

Hannah's last birthday

On February 15, our Hannah Grace would have been 10 years old. Ten.years.old. It’s just unimaginable really.

Before you were even a glimmer in my eye, God knew that those four years, nine months, and twenty-three days […]

A Faithful Friend

The Christmas of 2000 was quite the mixed bag. This Christmas found us as newlyweds- poor, still-in-college newlyweds but happy just to be spending our first Christmas as husband and wife.

The Wilting Fighter

Today was the day. I didn’t even see it coming. The day that brought my wilting. You would think, by now, I would have enough perspective that some things would just not get to me. And sometimes, I do. Today, it was insurance that got me. Or rather, lack of it. I won’t carry on […]
