On your fifth birthday........

Dear Faithie,

On your fifth birthday,  I would like you to know how much I love you.


I am so grateful to God that I get to be your Mama.



You are the sweetest little girl in the world.



My spicy chicken.

I would not change a thing about you.

And today, you celebrate your third birthday home with your family.

Today means that you have been home with us longer than you were away.

I am so grateful to your birth Mama.

I think of her today with love and respect and gratitude.

And I am sure she is thinking of you.  Because no one who has looked into those deep brown eyes of yours could ever forget you.

You are so loved my sweet baby.   So very loved.

Lord over all

    In the searching

In the waiting

You quiet my soul


Jesus, you are Lord over all

Cloudy days and blue sky



Things have been cloudy at our house lately.......

My head has been cloudy.

My heart has been cloudy.

And sometimes I have felt really discouraged.

I had to go for a drive the other day to get a few things and I was by myself which is not the normal way I drive.

Everywhere I looked for as far as I could see there were clouds, thick clouds in every direction, no matter where I turned to look at the sky.

It made me think that this is how I feel right now, clouds everywhere.....

And then as I continued to drive, from out of nowhere (the sky was totally overcast) out in front of me was a beautiful blue color of sky.....the clouds had opened just a little and there it was.

I smiled so big because God showed that to me to tell me that there is always blue sky somewhere underneath all of those clouds, whether they are in our lives or in the sky.

We don't always see the blue but we must trust that it is there, it will come!

I went about the rest of my day singing to Him.......

 He doesn't have to show me any of those things, He just does it because He loves me.


Hope this encourages you if you are reading it!    xoxoxooxoxoxoxoxo
