This man. Oh how I am thankful for him. He is passionate in His pursuit of the Lord and seeks to further the Kingdom more every day. He is intentional in his relationships with his family, friends, and with me, making everyone he comes in contact with feel known and valued. His patience, even in frustrating and exhausting times, astounds me. He is witty and funny (we spend a lot of time laughing together). And sometimes he makes goofy faces while we eat lunch. I️ enjoy walking through life with him!
Happy Birthday, Pocahontas! Keep painting with all the colors of the wind.
Watching your younger siblings grow up is one of the coolest and simultaneously weirdest things ever. This (not so) little one is blossoming into such a beauty!
Today is hard. And I can’t be dishonest about the hurt I am facing.
How could I have known while taking this picture that just over a week later Sara would be called home to meet Jesus? She was so excited that this little place in Glen Rose offered gluten free bread. Her excitement probably doubled (at least) when she was able to purchase a loaf from them. As we drove back to Riverbend for the first day of the last week of camp, we sang along to It Is Well and reflected on a very full summer while preparing our hearts for the week to come.
Three months later, the phone call I received at 12:01 pm on August 1st still doesn’t feel real. My mind cannot comprehend it and my heart still hurts.
I miss you Bump. Lady hugs forever. Love you big.
Halloween through the ages.

My friend, I am tremendously thankful for you. I don't take the time to tell you that often enough. You have been with me on some of the worst and best days and been a big brother through it all. Thank you for continually calling me out when I'm being an idiot and making me laugh with the right balance of sass and goofiness. Love ya lots, pal! Happy Birthday!
Lisa! I'm thankful you were born and I get to call you friend! Thank you for listening to my random ramblings, feeding me all kinds of yummy things, introducing me (or attempting...when I stayed awake) to great movies and TV shows, helping me with random adulting moments (IKEA, arranging my kitchen, etc), and the list goes on. Happy Birthday!!! Love oo! ❤️
PS Watch until the end of the video & listen for your high pitched, "oh it's really cold!"
