Friday, April 27


Well, this whole thing just seems crazy.

And by "this whole thing", I mean the fact that I now have a baby boy, a son, sleeping just an arms length away from me. You know that verse that says, "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life."? (Proverbs 13:12) I feel like this little tree seedling is such a tender, precarious thing... I'm almost afraid of enjoying it too much!

the day before you were born

Dear Baby,

It's Thursday, April 19, 2012. And very early tomorrow morning, you will make your entrance into the world.

Resurrection Week

"One day, there will be a great reversal of everything we're doing right now."

Pastor Chris said those words at Gwendolyn's graveside service, and it's honestly all that I can remember from his eulogy. It's all that I think of when I go by her grave, and whisper over her body - "One day, Gwenny! One day this will all be undone."
