8 months with this hot adventure partner today. He’s currently throwing a tree trunk into the river. #trying #vscocam (at Clinton River Trail)

Good luck getting this one to slow down for one second to get a clear picture. She gives me my puppy fix. #vscocam


There is nothing sweeter than the awareness of God.

My heart still starts pounding when he looks at me a certain way.

Rough patch. That’s what I’ve been in. It’s been analyzed and calculated by me, but the emotional impact was tough. New seasons of life still inevitably cause anxiety in me; it’s the fear of the unknown. But I’ve learned something about my relationship. There’s always going to be unknowns. And one day I’ll have to just look him in the face and either say, “I know what I’m getting myself into. I choose it,” or “it’s just not worth it to me.”
Right now we’re still in the in-between phases with a goal we’re working toward. And all the while through, he is patient, steady, inquisitive, attentive, and gentle. Not perfect, but trying. & I so appreciate that. Tomorrow marks another milestone for us, and I’m fearful of the unknowns in our future but so glad he’s by my side when they come.

Can I say something to young ladies here? I’m trying to pick my words carefully here. Your husband, whoever he is, single ladies, will have an unbelievable amount of influence over your sons and daughters in regards to spiritual things. If you want your children to love Jesus deeply, hold out for a man that is Godly. And let me tell you this: I am well aware that Godly men are rare. Lots of neat Christian boys, not a lot of Godly men. And we’re working our tails off for you to try to develop some into that. But don’t settle, because it’s better that you be lonely now than you be married and lonely later. Are you tracking with me? It is better that you be lonely now than for you to get married to a man that will teach your kids everything but the way of Jesus.

For if a strong back
and a heavy heart
have taught me anything,
it’s that love does not exist to
lighten our hearts,
love only exists to see
how much we will carry.

Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.

Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
