Children Are a Privilege

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Parenting (2 Responds)

Chloe reading to us. This morning we had medical appointments to get to. I should have gotten our things ready the night before but I didn’t. {Isn’t that often the case?!?} The morning was a little rushed and hairy. By the time I got all three children into the van, put Isaac’s wheelchair in and […]

Photo Credit: Vegar Norman The Lord is Come! That Jesus would come so humble, from unimaginable Glory to such an unexpected lowly place, astounds me. Since becoming a mother almost 7 years ago, I’ve thought more about this ‘baby’ business each year than I have before. Now I think about how He came and was […]

Photo by Dezz “But the father of lies, he’d duped us in the whole nine yards. Though we ate of that tree we did not become like God. We have no knowledge of good and evil apart from God. Our heart optics are not omniscient. How can I really see if a seeming disaster or […]

what it’s not about

Posted by Jennifer under Faith (No Respond)

Photo Credit I cried as I read a story by Michelle Lyn from A life surrendered. Then I cried as I read this: Though I struggle, it’s not about release from the struggle, but allowing Him to change me through it. Though I fail, it’s not about the mistakes I’ve made, but what He’s done […]
