Silver/Gold



We never stop being amazed by the way God gives us people, wherever we go. Today we turned this page once again, feeling loved and held together in the pew and on the monkey bars.

It felt indulgent to hope that our kids could be smitten with the neighbor kids like they were before.

Why do I doubt? Why?

When will I stop believe I'm telling God something He doesn't already know when I talk to Him about what we need?

Thy mystery of His love unravels another length and I'm left standing with my mouth hinged open over the way He holds us so well. Every one of us.

  9. I love the top picture. I don't usually comment-but should. Your posts have shown up in my thoughts lately and have challenged my way of "safe" thinking and living. Thank-you, thank-you for putting your bold thoughts and questions "out there" for the rest of us to read. God is getting my attention, through you.

  12. Has nothing to do with the blogpost...but Calvin is everything I find adorable about Korean men. After living in Asia for 6 years I can tell the difference between all the "Asians" (well, most of them) and I am convinced that Korea is the only place in Asia with "handsome" men...or more accurately, the Asia with the most abundant percentages of handsome males. My husband feels the same. You can imagine what our mall people-watching is like.

  14. We moved last year and I could not have found a better fit! When I sit and think how did it all fall in place when there was so much stress associated with this move? I realize it was divine intervention... From GOD!!! (As one slaps forehead).
