finding my words

I've been in a season.

At least that's what I've been calling these past 2 years where we have lived in Uganda, 
adopted E, 
birthed Della, 
moved twice, 
planted a church 
and radically changed the way we live.

Somehow the word "season" just doesn't quite seem to capture it. 

In the past 2 years God has been at work.
growing me...
stretching me...
teaching me to truly depend/rely on Him...
changing my priorities and aligning them with His.
There has been much refining.
It's been both painful 
and beautiful.
I have lost friends
and been given new ones.
And although processing these things in this space has been my desire.
Wanting to let my little community here into all that God is doing,
and being able to document all that God has done.

I have lacked the words.

Many a time I have sat in front of this computer with my heart overflowing in groans but no words.
Groans that scripture tells me God has heard, but that I could not articulate in this place.
Words have been absent in this crazy, full, challenging season of our lives.


They are coming.

Slowly I am breathing more deeply.

And as I do, I am gaining the words I need to articulate all that God has done, and all that He has promised to do.

So, I hope to slowly and steadily let you into my world.
Hope to give you a glimpse at how worth it it is to say yes to God.

So, hello again!
Let's talk again soon.



  1. Can't wait to hear how God has worked in your life. You are precious and I am glad that God allowed our paths to cross. Blessings, Jill
