We’re Stronger Together

You know that old adage. “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all?” Yeah, well, that’s kind of how I feel about 2016.

I completely understand that this whole calendar thing is man-made, and I know it means nothing in terms of reflecting the inner-workings of God and His ultimate time-table.

I totally get that.

Still, this year, these past 12 months, have been a doozy. Both personally and as a family.

Weekly Image of Life: Seasons and Changes

Ecclesiastes 3:1

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:

I pray that at this point you all know that everything I share is done so in love and from the sincerest part of my heart.  Today is no exception, as I introduce you to the woman I admire, adore and deeply appreciate for being the most phenomenal mom I know.   From the day He decided we were to be together, God has blessed me in such a mighty way through her.  Generous, selfless, motivating, passionate, strong…oh the list of her amazing attributes goes on and on!  Most importantly she is a woman after God’s own heart, and if I can be just a hint of the mother she’s been to me, I know my sweet Alexandra will be in good shape.

I’m choosing to share all of this with you now, because in a little over a week she and my stepdad (another blessing!) will be moving across the country to GeorgiaI know I’m an adult, and wife and mother now myself, but there’s nothing like having your mommy close-by.  I will miss her tremendously, but I’m supremely confidant that our relationship will continue to grow.  This is a new season in her life, and I encourage her to embrace it with everything that she has.  My parents are homeowners now, which is a dream fulfilled, and I’m thrilled for what the Lord is doing in their lives.  A change has come, but one thing will never change.  My mom is my hero, and I can’t thank her enough for how she’s enriched my life. 

This beautiful card says so much…

I LOVE YOU MOM!!!!!!!!!
