  • The before and after! 
It appears that the 100 fires in his arm has been extinguished. He will be able to live like his old self again. And he will no longer need to be held by his infant sister for stability. The drama has quelled... for the moment.

Lord have mercy if this child should ever wed. Thankfully we are all smiles now that his "invincible cast" is on.
  • Church is more than a quick fix once a week. A real church home is a place where you are known. 
We have a done a lot of adult growing up in our church home. We've both been employed here in one way or another over the last 10 years. We were engaged while we were here, got married while we were here, had our babies while we were here.

Here, we have learned to be raw and intimate with God. And we have learned that He can handle that. We have fallen in love with the nations here. Made our deepest friendships here. Our oldest got saved here. We are walking and talking and growing in a rich love of God and his word here. 
So on our last Easter Sunday here. I have to trust that we have been equipped here. That what we know is only a set up for what is next. 
Grace Fellowship. You have been good to us! So so good to us. God, it was the sweetest mercy for you to place us here. 
The countdown to listing our house begins!
  • This right here is the good stuff of homeschooling. The relationships. The tenderness that only grows with time together in the hard things and rejoicing with great exclamation over the little things. 
At times, the two middles are at odds. But their shared loves is found in seeking out and finding all things pretty. As the weather turned from pollen yellow to dark sky, Ollie found the pretty in weeds that shout "Spring!" And in his own wild way, came in exclaiming "Ella! I brought you a buffet!" This is the fierce love of a 5 year old. This is the sheer DELIGHT of a 3 year old. 
I wanna be more like them!
