left for this

discovering God's plans as life falls apart

Going through countless tragedies, I wondered where God was, and why He wouldn't show up to do something...anything. Then He did, taking me from this life. Left to live, tragedies have increased, but I'm no longer the same. I'm certain God has a plan, and He'll use what we go through, for great and mighty things. Day after day, I hold on, knowing there's a reason...I was left for this.

Why I Desperately Needed Faith

A year ago today, Meg hit her head on the slide. Strangely enough, it was one of the best things to ever happen.   I can’t say time has flown, but it’s ticked to God’s will.   Many nights I’d lay with my hand on my chest feeling my heartbeat. It was betraying in a

All The Little Things

Meg’s hair is finally long enough to fit in a ponytail!   It’s something so small and simple but every time I wrap the band around her hair, I feel the gratitude.   Days are made up of all these small things we fail to recognize the difference they make, and importance they hold.

When The Good Is Too Dear

Meg’s been having a really good week and it’s so good to see!   Sometimes it feels like we search for the good in the bad and when the bad leaves, we’re almost afraid to touch the good in case it’s not real.   So I try to not let her overdo it because I

Finding Deliverance In Our Problems

Meg’s surgeon visit went like the initial one we had last summer. While she has symptoms it’s not worth the risks of surgery. Since her body didn’t do well on the brain pressure medication, even a low dose of it isn’t an option.   I’m grateful it’s not as bad as it was or can

The Luckiest Kids Ever

I figured 2 days on the road with the kids would test my hair strength, but it’s actually been really good. I haven’t pulled my hair out (yet).   When we pulled up at SeaWorld the kids faces dropped in shock. The surprise was priceless! They kept asking if it was really it and if

Moving Forward When Sliding Back

We are headed south. Houston Neurosurgery called and Meg is to be checked in Monday morning. Seeing the left side of Meg’s face slack, I know there’s no getting out of it. We have to go.   Isaiah 30:21 NIV Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a

When I Have No Song

I hear Meg outside whistling. She stops and listens to hear the baby birds. The ones who’s nest rests on the downspout that I didn’t have the heart to knock down. The mama had wove in ribbon from a yard decoration Meg made, and Meg was proud they liked it too.   I hear her
