Death

  
This is D and I after several thousand miles of driving. For D to say hello to many family members and landscapes. For me to say goodbye to my grandmother. For us both to say hello to this new chapter of our lives and goodbye to the old “normal”. Baby sister will be here soon. 

Whoa what a whirlwind trip. God showed up and showed out. Sandstorms, rainstorms, elk, and wildfires. Rainbows in odd places (that’s a whole other blog post). 

Man am I tired. Sometimes you have to go backward to go forward. I’m ready God. I know you have big plans in store. 

   
    
    
 
We were able to sneak some visits with friends and family on the road. This last week taught me to live every moment to it’s fullest. Choose kindness (even if you are tired and don’t feel like it). Life is too short for anything less. We are not guaranteed tomorrow. Our family and friends are not guaranteed tomorrow. 

Rest in Peace Hazel Barnett, Lori Westmoreland, and Alex Sullivan. 

Love, like everything else in life, should be a discovery, an adventure, and like most adventures, you don’t know you’re having one until you’re right in the middle of it.

E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭9‬ ESV)

For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭13‬ ESV)
