A Letter To My First Car

A letter to my first car

Dearest Ford Escape, My parents traded you in the other day. They texted me a picture, the last farewell shot before you were gone. You were rusted over and under and had seen better days. My days. You have not been my car for many years, I have since moved away from home, gotten married and had children. I have moved on from that first-car-young-driver time of life. You were driven by my siblings after me. You were not only my […]

My (Almost) Sleeping Beauties

sleeping beauties

Lying on my back on the floor of my daughters’ bedroom, staring up at the wall as I wait for them to drift off to sleep. One in a toddler bed on my right, and one in a toddler bed on my left, my almost sleeping beauties. I have to wait until the two-year-old is truly out because as soon as I move to leave the room, I hear “Mommy” coming from her corner of the room and she immediately will […]

I can’t remember what happened last week […]

One Boot Print at a Time

One Boot Print at a Time

A jumble of curls, ivory lace and flying ribbons darts down the aisle, brown leather boots trotting silently on the gleaming floor.  A small chubby hand grasping the condensed stems of dainty Baby’s Breath. Another smaller chubby hand also grasps the stems of a tiny bouquet but this little girl is not flying by in a whirlwind, she is not a blur of lace and ribbon. No, this one stands stock still at the back of the aisle, right where […]

Highly Defined-The Lovely Little Lives Family Story

highly defined

Sometimes there are things, little things and big things that happen that seem like more than just coincidence, little reminders that there is a God who loves us and is sending us love letters through our everyday lives. When I was deciding whether to move my life to another state to be closer to my long-distance relationship I was praying one day in the student chapel and there was a larger-than-life Bible lying open on a stand by the altar.
