" Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long." ~ Psalm 25:4-5

~Our Sweet Potato girl~

After Isabelle's 4 month appointment, Dr. Guse gave the ok to introduce her to solid foods! As you can see, she loved them!! Mommy & Daddy thought they were pretty disgusting. To our surprise they didn't actually taste like sweet potatoes- more like chalk and dog food :/. I went in to this whole "Food thing" thinking as a mom, I should try them first....Never again

A cry of thankfulness

Ryan, Isabelle, and I were in a car accident over the weekend. Many thoughts have pervaded my mind over the last few days, but one in particular has been reoccurring - God is so good.

God has been so good to me & so faithful throughout my life from before I was conceived, through my: adoption, dark teenage years,marriage, miscarriages, miraculous baby blessing, collision with a semi, to now as I sit still in awe of His sovereignty and goodness. God has been good to me in so many ways, but nothing can compare to the ultimate gift He has given me through Jesus. For reasons none other than His glory and goodness, the Lord chose to forgive me for my wickedness; my deviation from His glorious will. He has saved me from my sin, which if not forgiven, would have sent me to eternal torment and separation from Him.

I am thankful everyone survived. But the truth is, there will be a day when my life will be over. And on that day, I will be judged by Christ and found innocent because He washed me and clothed me with His righteousness.
