My Firm Foundation

"Jesus you're my firm foundation. I know I can stand secure. Jesus, you're my firm foundation. I put my trust in Your Holy Word..." We're almost through this trial of temporary homelessness. We signed the papers for closing Friday! We have our homestead! I walked the property with my son yesterday and my eyes welled … Continue reading My Firm Foundation


Crashing in our worship pastor's basement isn't exactly my ideal living situation. It's been over a week and we still have no concrete timeline pertaining to our occupancy/closing on our new place. We are in between homes; wanderers, strangers, nomads. Like the Romani people (minus the fortune telling) who lived as wanderers making a living … Continue reading Gypsies

It Is Well From the outside of our situation, one would think it is horrible. And that's understandable. I have a hard time making sense of things myself- we pay all our bills, my husband has a good job, we pray over every decision before we act, and yet somehow, in spite of all those things, we … Continue reading It Is Well

To celebrate, my husband brought home surprise Jones Soda and natural vanilla bean ice cream. I hugged him and cried for minutes solid because, doggone it, that … Continue reading Home

Thy Will Be Done

I heard a song by Hilary Scott called, "Thy Will". I don't think there has ever been a time when it could have resonated with me more than right now. My family and I are obligated to vacate our home in 23 days. If everything goes smoothly with our impending purchase contract, our closing will … Continue reading Thy Will Be Done

Children, Go Where I Send Thee.

What. A. Week. Just an absolute crap fest of a week. My life proves Murphy's quantum Law: "Murphy's Quantum Law: Anything that can, could have, or will go wrong, is going wrong, all at once. If there are two or more ways to do something, and one of those ways can result in a catastrophe or pregnancy, then someone will do it." So there … Continue reading Children, Go Where I Send Thee.
