thoughts -

life is too crazy to say a ton so I will drop some knowledge on ya'll in bullet point form. I promise these things BLOW MY MIND. I hope you can pause to consider them too...

*When I am away from Jesus (because I chose to take my eyes off Him, turn from Him, and ignore Him), He misses me the way I miss Sammy...only way more...and He loves me more too...I honestly can barely comprehend that...

*Quote of the week - "not that i'm at all convinced "normal" is anything more than that elusive "something" we chase because our expectations don't match our reality and we want reality to get with the program. and then there's Jesus, in control of our reality and loving us in the midst of it." My friend Alyssa emailed this to me. I felt like it was a little love note from the Lord. Seriously...

*Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1,2

*sigh* these are just a couple of the thoughts on my mind this weekend.


  1. Your friend Alyssa is a smart woman. And in my simple mind, I would add, "Normal is just a setting on the dryer." Oh for the unconditional love and grace of Jesus and the depth of His love which we can never fully comprehend. Love you, Honey!

  2. yup, almost daily it blows my mind to know that God loves Amelia more than me.
