Long Time

Oh my heavens! It has been such a long time since I've posted anything! I guess the most recent news is that my nephew Caleb is one year old now!! That is so very hard to believe -- it really feels like not long ago we were headed over to the hospital to visit him in the NICU every weekend. It does not seem real that he is finally 12 months old. He is doing absolutely wonderful -- growing like a weed and cutting teeth (4 now, 2 more about to come in). I won't post all the pictures I've taken since I last blogged, but I'll put some of my favorites up and some from his birthday party.

stuff from his hospital days

time to to dig in!

he wasn't too sure about it!

...and the aftermath...

opening presents

...more presents!

he loves books!


I AM A CHRISTIAN. I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, & mind. God has really blessed me more than I could ever imagine, but the truth is that Satan HATES me!! I face struggles & temptation every single day of my life; but no matter what happens, I still strive to do the will of God. Because I put my faith & trust in God, He has provided relief for me & my family time & time again! God never fails to comfort & remind me of His promise that “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). There have been countless times that I did not deserve God’s grace & should not have been granted mercy. But He has granted me mercy & forgiveness, as well as goodness & grace -- all for the purpose of sharing it with those I meet along the path of life. Some days are better than others, but you always have to remember to keep pressing on! Keep praising HIM & He’ll never fail to bring you through the storm.
