Sometimes life doesn't make any sense.  And it's so easy to doubt the goodness of God.  His timing.  His perfect will.  When we're overwhelmed and hurting, it's hard to get past the emotions and make sense of it all.  But, we must not ever forget what we know about God, what the Bible says about God.  He is our shelter and our comforter.  He is our friend.  Our counselor.  Our healer.  Even if you are struggling with the whys of life...know that you can rest in God's loving arms.
I don't know what You're doing.  But I know who You are.


This photo was taken a few weeks ago when we visited my parents for my 30th birthday celebration.  There was a squirrel in the tree tormenting our dog and she was starting to give the squirrel a piece of her mind.  Though she turned five yesterday, she's still a pup at heart.  And we love her very much.  As weird as this sounds, she is truly a part of our family.  Now before I get all sentimental, we are not throwing her a birthday party like so many have done and shared on pinterest.  We are not one of those people.  Nor did she get a cake or gifts.

I don't feel like a "grown-up."  But it's official.  I am a full blown adult.  I am living in the "when."  Make no mistake, I was yanked out of my 20s kicking and screaming like an unfulfilled kid in a candy store.  But, it's not the end of the world.  In fact, fighting aging is a battle I have no shot at winning.  So I must embrace it full throttle.  And you know what?  It gets better!  When I look back on the last ten years I can say that I have grown leaps and bounds in every area of my life.  Where I am now isn't exactly where I thought I would …
