Forever indebt…


I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.

When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.

I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!  This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you.

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

John 15: 9-14

Dancing in the rain…

I’ve seen this quote tons of times, and I’ve always thought it was great, but now I can say I know how important the message is.

"Life's not about waiting for the storms to pass...It's about learning to dance in the rain."


To all my readers…you may have been wondering where I’ve been, or perhaps you know exactly where I’ve been :)

Three kiddos, a house on the market, the process of building our house in Florida, and the countless hours I’ve spent on the phone settling insurance/house/rental/school stuff HAS TOTALLY ROCKED MY WORLD.  


I thought I had seen tough times, but what I’m learning is there will always be something happening.  SO-although its been pouring I’ve been trying to learn to DANCE IN THE RAIN : ) But, those who know me best know I’m not very coordinated~very scattered brained~and can’t control my emotions for anything.

The other day I seriously sobbed through an entire spinning class…filled with emotions from every direction. It was quite therapeutic.  I laugh thinking about myself doing that, but it’s the truth, and I share it with you…just to show you that embarrassing life meltdowns can happen to us all. Luckily it was dark and no one probably noticed.

Leaving the place where we started our family, moving to a new place where I know no one, and thinking about the fact that despite my attempts to deny it…Brad will be deploying within the year---I’ve found myself panicked. I will survive it, but I’m going to have to DIG DEEP.

On another note-here are pictures of my sweet peas and what we’ve been up to lately…
