Peace is coming

I was walking through the mall with Rob the other night and came across this picture. My heart caught in my chest and I had to stop and stare. It was beautiful. It was bigger than my own living room wall and I thought for a brief moment I would sell my only car for it. It is amazing. This little picture does not do it justice (clicking on it should make it bigger), but hopefully you can see the meaning a little bit. There is a lot of symbolism in it.


My friend Alexis did a post today that really touched me. She has a new blog set up to help us all remember what it really means to have patriotism. I truly believe that "Peace is Coming," as the picture above is appropriately titled.

Broken things

Getting up and falling down. Getting up and falling down. Over and over again. Everyday I promise to do better, wondering why it is so hard. Yelling at him, not listening to her. Forgetting this and resenting that. Saying sorry, hoping for mercy, feeling broken inside. Getting up by taking His hand and somehow I catch His eyes. It is then that with certainty I know, He is okay with broken me. Falling down and getting up. Falling down and getting up. Over and over again.

Find a tissue and enjoy this video.

Ice Cream and Summer Days

If you haven't been here, here, here, or here in the last few hours then listen up. If you love me, I NEED your help. ALL the help you can give. One of my most adorable nieces is a finalist in a photo contest. If she wins then the prize is $500 dollars that will pay for her trip to come to our family reunion. We want her here sooooo bad! Go here and vote. Make sure you vote for #9 and you can vote once per day, but hey if you have more than one computer...just sayin ya know. I don't think it is cheating. As long as you don't have more computers than household members. Which I don't but if I did I would use them too NOT use them. (clearing throat...) Anyway. Thanks for your help!


Is that not the picture of adorableness? Quick! Go spread the word to those who love you and owe you their first born a favor!
