Our Megs

This is Megan. Most of you know her, some of you don't. I babysat her for 2 years while her mom, our good friend Carmen was going to school. Megan was a gift from God to Mark and I. She lit up our lives like only she can. God knew I needed a love outlet and a love inlet. She provided both. She let me love on her and she filled both of our lives with a childs love which was exactly what my heart needed. The grief that comes from struggling to have a baby really wears on your heart. Megan was a healing balm to those hurting places. I always say to Mark, "I can't imagine loving our own child more than I love Megan." and its true. I can't imagine loving someone more than I love her. I feel like she's my own. I'm so grateful that Carmen and Dave let me have her for that season in my life. It was God's perfect timing. When I get discouraged and overwhelmed with not having a baby, I remember that time with Megs and I know the faitfulness of God!

One of my Many Favorite People

This is my cousin Kyle, whom I love! He is absolutely crazy! We laugh all the time and he is just the coolest guy ever!! Unfortunately, he lives in P.G. so we don't see each other very often, but oh, when we do, its like the laughter floodgates open and I might as well wear a diaper for all the pant-peeing I will do!!

When Love Takes You In

When Love Takes You In
by Steven Curtis Chapman
I know you've heard the stories
But they all sound too good to be true
You've heard about a place called home
But there doesn't seem to be one for you
So one more night you cry yourself to sleep
And drift off to a distant dream
Where love takes you in
Everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you belong here
The lonliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in
And somewhere while you're sleeping
Someone else is dreaming too
Counting down the days until
They hold you close and say I love you
And like the rain that falls into the sea
In a moment what has been is lost
In what will be

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
And this love will never let you go
There is nothing that could ever cause
This love to loose its hold
