It seems like I've heard a lot more bad news than good in the past few weeks and months, even in the past few days. And it's easy to have a full and heavy heart in the midst of all of this. But this morning I had to just stop, and realize that I can't help but be thankful. You see, we have a loving Heavenly Father who is bigger than any problem or trial we might ever face. And He is willing to take on all of our problems, cares and concerns, if only we will let Him. He offers undeniable, unfathomable, incomprehensible peace in the midst of chaos. And for that, I am so thankful. I hope others can take refuge in that truth regardless of your situation in life - because wherever you are today and whatever you're going through, it doesn't change.
Herschel and I got married in July 2007, and we have been on a wonderful adventure ever since. We recently moved from Little Rock, Arkansas to South Florida, where we are learning about marriage, each other and life a little bit more every day. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's serious, but it's always shaping us into the people we are today. I hope you enjoy spending a little bit of time with us through this blog.
