Giving Thanks with a Full Heart

Giving Thanks with a Full Heart

I began this post a few days ago, but between cross country flights, reconnecting with my in-laws, filling up on wonderful food, and then eating leftovers of wonderful food, I still want to post my thanks and gratitude before we move too far away from Thanksgiving:

First and foremost, I am so grateful - everyday... every moment of the day - for the grace, forgiveness, and salvation afforded to us by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I cannot imagine my life without him; although, I can remember well when I chose a life apart from him. It is by the grace of God every day that I can love God well, love others, and know that I am loved. Praise God for what he did for every single one of us on the cross and resurrection!

In My Absence

In My Absence

This summer has felt more like a dream than reality.

It began with a notice on our apartment door one evening in the beginning of June, stating that my family had 60 days to vacate our apartment due to luxury renovations. Yikes!

First thought, "Bummer!" Our home since the beginning of our marriage... laughs, love, conflict, a little girl, so many memories over with a simple two sentence notification. Ten days later, we moved everything into storage and became a family without an address.
