Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

Hey mom, addie loves u!

When I walked into the house tonight (after going to a late movie with the girls), this message was left for me right in the doorway. Hey Mom addie loves u.
I was struck, not by what he wrote but, that my baby boy is writting me notes. Caleb is starting Kindergarten next week and I'm so excited for him because I think he'll love it, but I'm also so sad that he's getting to be so old.
I have a feeling this note tells me a lot about their bedtime routine without me. It sounds like Addie never recovered from my departure. Her attachment to me makes me a little concerned about leaving her when we go to Ethiopia. Hopefully she'll do better then!
Everyone's asleep now so it's all good and I have a cute note from my boy:)


  1. It just melts you doesn't it! Enjoy school Caleb! I am sure it might be a tough day for you Lauren...I can only little guy is almost 3!


  2. Frame it and put it in your room! Love it...makes me so sentimental. Our daughter one time while away colored a pic of a princess and a prince- stuck them on our bedroom door with Mom & Dad at the top. I haven't been able to take them down. I love when your children are just sooo sweet!
