19 Years...

Today is a day of celebration. On this day, 19 years ago, I married my knight in shining armor! We were just two young (17 & 20) kids so in love we couldn't imagine life without one another. Alot of people told us we would never make it, that we were too young to know what love was, we were too immature. Now that I have a son almost that age I completely understand their comments and would probably say the same things to my son, actually...I already do! LOL! I have been married longer than I was single!
Sean and I are complete opposites...I'm talkative (I know, you didn't realize that about me! LOL!) and he's quiet. But God has knit us together perfectly and you can't really tell where one of us ends and the other starts. He is an amazing, amazing man and I'm so honored to share life with him. Really though, the icing on the cake has been seeing Sean's heart enlarged as he loves each new child God sends our way. He is a walker, not a talker. He walks hi…

Counting Down...

Only one more day until I meet up with my cousins, aunts, mom and mother-in-law to enjoy our yearly weekend getaway to the Women of Faith Conference! I am so excited about having uninterrupted time with my Savior. Nobody hanging on my legs, or needing me to referee, or screaming, or wanting to eat. I won't know how to act! I wasn't sure I was going to go this year with Nolan being so little but I really feel like I desperately need some refreshing, some time away to breathe and recoup. Sean will do a wonderful job of holding down the fort while I'm away. The boys won't be here to help because they will be out of town doing another skateboarding event all day Saturday. So, if you think of it, could you say a prayer for Sean, mainly his sanity, LOL! and for safety for all.

Sean will be counting down too....counting the minutes until mommy is home doing what she does best....maintaining the chaos. :)

A Little of This, A Little of That...

For those of you who have been praying for our messy situation with Nolan's adoption....THANK YOU!! It appears after conference call, lawyer meetings, and another large outlay of money that all rights have been terminated. Now we just finish our post-placement visits and in 6 months we will have finalization in the court system. Only days after learning that Birthmom's rights were indeed terminated I received a call from the agency who had BM on the line wanting to speak with me. It was very awkward for the first couple of minutes but then we both warmed up and chatted for almost an hour. So we are breathing a huge sigh of relief here and praising God for His answers to our prayers.

On that note, let me tell you about little man (aka: Nolan). He is the most precious little guy! Seriously. He is all smiles and cooing now. Love it! He is so alert too. He spends alot of his time (ok, ok, MOST of his time) in my arms. LOL! Yes, it's been said that he is spoiled but I beg to di…

Roots and Fruit....

Because they had no root they withered away. Matthew 13:6 "If a tree puts on a lot of top growth and few roots, it is liable to be weak-wooded and short lived.." William Bryant Logan We live minutes from a beautiful National Park. It is filled with creeks, hiking trails and trees....lots of trees. It is always amazing to me to see these huge trees felled by wind or insects. Something that seems so solid killed by something so small. These roots, covered with ground, exposed now for us to examine, are not what you would expect for such a large tree. They are shallow....only 1-2 feet long. Definately not long enough to anchor a tree against storms. Roots are important not only for trees but for us as well. They are what ground us, anchor us, and sustain us during the storms of life. If our roots are deep in the soil of God's word we will be strong and solid. Although the storms rage around us, pummelling us with it's power, we are able to bend and sway, standing tall am…
