 Photo Credit In a castle so grand, There lived a sweet lass; Who flopped on her bed, And picked up her looking glass. She sighed at the image, And wrinkled her face; She lowered her head, And cried in disgrace. "Oh my nose is too big And my hair looks like straw!" As she sat […]

Five Minute Friday: Unexpected

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Just Life (3 Responds)

After two homebirths and two healthy children, we figured that we knew the drill. Isaac would arrive and six weeks later we’d hop on a plane – an African adventure awaited us. Isaac, born at home, began to go down hill quickly the next day. A month and a half in the NICU with Isaac […]
