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.

My babies are cute

My babies are leaving tomorrow. I'm feeling a little sad. I know it's going to be fine but I'm just going to miss them. But then I've already missed so much of Melia's little life. Anyway, leaving them for 11 days is sad. Don't get me wrong...there are some days that I think I need to get away from these little people, but not 11 days worth of being away.

I know that they will be fine and they are so excited about it so that makes it way easier to go. They were just so stinking cute tonight....

Addie was dancing like a crazy lady. My girl's got moves!
While I was playing dragons and knights with Caleb tonight, I was trying to be cool and creative and I said "hey guy come over here, look I found magic bombers" and Caleb just cracked up, he couldn't stop laughing and saying "magic bombers" over and over again. Apparently, I'm not very good at that imagination game.
Then when I was putting the boys to bed I started singing "Blessed be the Name of the Lord" and Nathan looked at me and said "Mommy, I love this song. This is the song I wanted you to sing. I love you." Then planted a big kiss on me.
See why it's hard to leave.

There's also a list of things that make me want to run away sometimes but that's for another time:)


  1. We'll be praying for your time apart. We're sure the kids will have fun in North Carolina!! :-)

  2. Love your post:) Praying for you and that u have a safe travel.

    Adopting 2 kiddos from Ethiopia.

  3. We have some of the cutest Grandkids in the whole world!!!! I know they will have a great time in NC and you and Michael will have an amazing adventure meeting Melia and bringing her home - but it doesn't make it easy to be apart from Caleb , Nathan and Addie. The Lord bless you and surround you with his steadfast presence and give you His peace. Love you so very much and constantly praying!!!
