About Me

God crossed our paths on 4-21-06...we took our time to officially start dating--we prayerfully started dating in the Summer of 2006, got engaged on 5-19-07, and God united us as one on our wedding day, 12-15-07. Exactly 1 year later, 12-15-08, we found out we were expecting our 1st child, Bailey Josiah, who was born on 8-3-09. God has blessed us beyond measure with such a precious son! We are so thankful for each other & for the amazing opportunity to raise one of His precious children. Little did we know, that a short 4 years later, we would be living out our vows, "through sickness & in health"...we hope & pray that this struggle with Lyme is going to be temporary, but right now are just taking it one day at a time, trusting God each step of the way. "In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps." Proverbs 16:9...."Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning." Psalm 30:5b

The Simple Things in Life Can be Powerful :)

Bailey's new thing is throwing away his "chash" :) Today he tried to go back to what he just threw away & pull it back out....I said, "No, no, Bailey, that’s your trash, once you throw it away, you don't go back to it & try to play with it" …of course , once I told him no, he was Very intrigued with the trash & the trashcan…..Immediately, I thought & began to be convicted; when I confess my sins to God, that’s my ‘trash,’ & I, too, should confess & Repent, should lay it down at His feet & not go back to it, but for some reason, I too, am intrigued with the ‘trash‘ in my life & either do not Fully repent or I dwell on it, such as my selfishness, pride, guilt, anxiety, jealousy, & I could keep on going; really anything in my life that does not bring Glory to God…….I never fail to be Utterly amazed at the incredible things God teaches me through the Blessing of being Bailey's mother; its Amazing!, God has given me the gift of being a deep thinker, it can be bad, but if I use it for His Glory, it can be incredible, such as Him teaching me this truth in life through something as simple as Bailey learning to throw his “chash“ away :)
