no words are needed to describe this video. 
no words could even begin to.

recommended by my brother in law, Mark, whose Wonder List is endless.
He just doesn't know it yet.


I Love Lucy used to make my mom laugh so hard.
I think we have probably have seen every episode.
This has to be in the top ten.


This was a year ago.. .

My whole family together, my mom here and laughing.

When asked who would pray before dinner the other day,
my five year old Sophia niece offered..
Here were her words:

Dear Jesus,
Please help us not to be sad when we remember Grandma.

Perfect words.
A perfect prayer for my whole family.
For child and adult.
And for anyone mourning the loss of a loved one.

Help us to rejoice with them … as they are rejoicing in heaven.
and at the same time, remember all of the happiness we shared with them while they were on earth.

It’s a tall order, one only God can fill.
And with Sophia’s prayer, help us to see how remembering can be used to bring joy and not pain.


cuts and color

i'm loving her hair more than she was @ the very moment the photo was snapped. 
simple.. sass
plain perfection
i vote yes.


all about spring
all about color.S
i'd be a paler version though, unlike this bronzed summer model.
white just makes the color pop anyway.

.. .as Jesus did

I remember years ago when I read Crazy Love.
It blew me away. 
I read it and gave copies away to so many people: gifted it to friends and family. 
It's a book like no other.
My actual copy is dog.eared and written in so much so that no one else could ever really get through it. 
I truly devoured each page. 
God allowed that book to help open my eyes .. . and heart in new ways.

I'm beginning Francis Chan's Forgotten God this weekend.
Truly looking forward to it. 
Somehow every time I listen to him talk, or read his work... . my brain synapses into new territory.

1 John 5.6
   But if anyone obeys His word, love for God is truly made complete in them. 
This is how we know we are in Him:Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
