I’m here

This blog has been silent for the last few weeks. I think about writing often, but the desire is swept away in the chaos of life. You see, our family is in one of those seasons we all hope to avoid. We’ve gained a new appreciation for spiritual warfare and I’m pleased to report that we’ve all grown closer in the battle. It’s far from over, but we’ll make it…eventually.


Have you ever been in a particularly difficult time and felt like the trials just kept mounting?


On top of the darkness we’ve had a leak in the bathroom (both from the ceiling and the toilet), a flood, a lamb die, and a son with a concussion.  That’s just in the last couple weeks. Actually, most of this has been in the last couple days.When it rains it pours, and in Oregon, we REALLY mean that!


Life’s not all bad.


My marriage is awesome, and my kids are amazing.


I’ve seen my children support each other and offer encouragement to one another.


I have, and I don’t say this lightly, the very best friends in the world!


I can see the protections that were set in place years ago.


The sun is shining today and the birds are singing.


And God is still good!


I hope you’re all blessed today,

    I’m glad you’re back! Not sure of your circumstances, but yes, I’ve had moments where life just completely stunk. But God is good. And it sounds like your family is great. Prayers for you, friend!

    “I can see the protections that were set in place years ago.” This made me want to cry. God is so amazing. He was taking care of you before you ever knew you needed taking care of. I love, love, love that. And I love you too.
