#Mom this post is about you. This photo is from last year. In it you're 8 months into the battle to rest in your faith in God manifesting healing in your body (which is exactly what He did!). You're still having monthly chemo, you've had two surgeries and you're just about to start 39 sessions of radiation. In the middle of this you're concerned about me. You're at the hair salon with me (even as a hat covers your own bald and beautiful head) - one of my first times out in public since I've been out of inpatient physical rehab and the hospital some weeks before. You watched attentively as the stylist washed and blow dried my hair, asking her to be careful, asking me if my neck was straining too much. That belt I'm wearing, you held onto it to help lift me up from the wheelchair so I could sit in the stylist chair. The shirt I'm wearing, you searched my closet upstairs for it (I'm not able to negotiate stairs just yet) and made sure I had some matching earrings on. The night before this day and many nights throughout this journey you slept right next to me to help me turn on my side or sit up or get to the rest room. In the days around this photo and so many times since and countless times before - you dried my tears and assured me that God's promises to me were sure and what I was experiencing would pass and things would get better (which they continue to). When my arms haven't been strong enough and when my hands couldn't grip well enough - you've stirred my doughs and batters - measured my ingredients - to make sure my contributions wouldn't stop due to temporary physical limitations. Your #love for Candy and I never ceases to amaze and inspire me. I believe that your love for us is the very expression of God's love for us. You taught us to pray, to trust God, to believe, to persevere, to make peace, pursue justice, to love others and ourselves, to express and seek to glorify Christ through our lives, to serve others, stand tall, be secure, be unafraid of being different, to walk on uncharted paths using the word as our light. This is you - you're everything and then some. #Happy #MothersDay Mommy. The best is yet to come. #Godisgood #Grace

#HappyBirthday to my #bestie #bff #sister. A #gorgeous, #brilliant, #kind, #loyal, #loving woman who has made our lives better in every way since she arrived around 8:30am today in the early 80's. We love you kid!! Mom's not on social media..so this post is from her too. #Godisgood

#tbt Same wayward #eyebrows #neck lines and #chin #gap and #cheeks. Some of the things that make me #unique. About thirty five years or so between the photos. I was so #loved then and I am so loved now, that hasn't changed either. #Blessed beyond measure. Oh the things I'd tell the younger me. #Godisgood #grace

Guess who was able to go to #church last night for the first time since February! Me! #Godisgood #Healed #Whole close to leaving the #wheelchair behind. #Thankful for God's #Grace which is sufficient for whatever season I am in. Also thanks to @can_spicuous for tying my #scarf for me #bestsister. #Family #Faith

Had a #visitor for a couple days. It was #great to have a #pet around the #house. Made me #miss our #girl #sugar but #mookie the #hound was such a sweetie and I look forward to hanging out with him again. He was perplexed by the #wheelchair movement at first and kept looking at my feet but then figured it out. #family #Godisgood #Grace

My #WCW is my #Mom. This was a few weeks ago on #easter #weekend when I was desparately wishing I was at #home. Mom suggested we head outside and enjoy the day. We sat #outside the #rehabilitation #hospital on a #beautiful #breezy #day for a #couple of #hours watching #newborns go home for the first time from the #maternity ward next door. I marveled at how my Mom who was in the middle of #winning her own #battle managed to lighten my load and bring a #smile to my face that day and everyday. We talked like two old ladies on a #southern #porch engaging any and every passerby. While enjoying the breeze, I took a deep breath and realized that in the middle of difficult times there is plenty of #joy and #goodness to be found. #Blessed #Healed #Family #nofilter #Grace #Godisgood

#Grateful - A #friend loves at all times and a #brother is born for adversity......I've experienced the truth of this scripture many times but in the last 48 days it has come alive to me in ways I never could have imagined. #Thankyou to all my brothers and sisters (most of whom are not on IG) for facing adversity with me like it was your own. Loving me and my family so fiercely and completely with the #Love of #God that we didn't have time to dwell on the craziness. God's #grace is sufficient - believe that. The #peace #Jesus gives us does go beyond what our natural minds can ever understand - trust that. #Healing is a finished work - thank God for that. #home #family #faith

My #dog #sugar closed her eyes for the last time yesterday. I wasn't there with her which makes me #sad. She was the #sweetest most #chill #pet ever. I will miss her laying on my feet, hogging all the space in front of the fireplace, doing an inspection for dropped food after our guests leave, placing her head on my lap and staring me in my eyes like she was trying to get me to understand something, turning her back to us when we said something she didn't like and her unabashed love for men (she was a #shameless #flirt). Thank #God we got to be your #family. You were the best, you were loved and you will be missed everyday.

#fbf reading #script changes from my epic #co-writer and #bff + #sister @can_spicuous, I think I prefer #longhand #writing. But I #type #90words per #minute so it doesn't make much #sense in terms of time. #SawyerSquared has so #much #content to #share. #Excited to #write and #produce our own #projects #screenwriter #writer #producer #sisterpower

#Celebrating my #first #bff #sister fellow #girlboss and #allaround #awesome @can_spicuous #birthday. She gets more #amazing every #year and she's a #blessing and #gift from #God to to our #family and so many other #people. #Thankful #Grateful #grace #Godisgood

#HappyBirthday to my #youngest #brother. This kid is absolutely fantastic and it is very befitting that he'd be born on #valentines #day as he is the #kindest #most #thoughtful #smart #funny and #handsome #11yearold #ever

#Beautiful #day with #mygirls #celebrating our #church #anniversary #31years. I know that the last 25 years we've been at @worldchangerschurch have made an epic and eternal mark in our lives. Now we watch the #falcons #win the #superbowl!! #family #faith #grace #Godisgood #riseup
