I can't stop thinking about this verse (and all of John's prologue) :: “For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.”
‭‭John‬ ‭1:16‬

Super messy house, super grumpy child, super mondayish Monday. I think we're all in denial that Spring Break is over. 🤦🏼‍♀️

I try to take a picture of this glorious purple tree every year and every year the picture sucks compared to the real thing. Anyway, spring is gorgeous. Also, up on the blog - 2 Things I Love About Friendships with Younger Women :: Link in profile

I want to thank you all for your kind and thoughtful words after my post last Friday. It meant so much to share something so personal and to be met with so much warmth and encouragement. Many people have asked how they might be a blessing to a loved one going through a similar journey of infertility or miscarriage. It's so hard for me to speak into someone else's situation since we all process in different ways, but I would encourage you to just be present in your friend's life. Also, I always appreciated it when someone would ask me how I was doing--even if I didn't open up much, it meant a lot to know they were thinking and praying about something that was almost always on my mind and was so close to my heart. Much love, friends 💕

Going through the baby things - remembering the newborn smell, the long hours spent in a comfy chair, all that spit-up!, the rollercoaster of euphoria and sleep-deprivation-bordering-on-trauma. I can't wait :)

Everyone deals with grief in their own way. When I had my miscarriages, it was hard for me to know how to process my pain, what to do with the hurricane of emotion I was feeling. Writing it all down helped me to process, and then my mom gave me this necklace - and a baby ring for each child we lost - and it was just what I needed to remember without being swallowed up in grief. Today on the blog I posted the story of one of my miscarriages :: Link in profile

This week has been about time and space - breathing room - margin. The lack of agenda lends itself to wandering thoughts, finding motives and desires and ideas that had remained hidden. The long hours allow me time to do things I normally have to squeeze into a handful of minutes - Bible reading, prayer, reading - and to do them until I'm bored with them and find a new way of doing them. I feel comfortable just sitting - "wasting& #34; time - something I almost never do at home. It reminds me of winter, the long dormant months that nature rests before a new season of growth.

Another gorgeous day 🙌🏼

Praise God that his plans do not rely on my faithfulness, his joy doesn't hinge on my good behavior, his glory doesn't depend on my performance. // @jenwilkin , "None Like Him" #agbookclub2017

Oh my gosh. I can fool myself into thinking I'm not a huge nerd until you put me in front of a camera. 🤦🏼‍♀️Anyway, I have a couple blog posts up on the blog and I'd love to have you weigh in :: Link in profile
