About Me

My photo
I am 19 years old now. It seems like time is going fast, and I am not always sure how to handle it! I started college August 2014. I am studying psychology at North Central University, meeting new people, and drawing closer to God with each step I take. Life is not a destination, it is a long journey. I am excited to see what God has in store for my life, and I hope you will join me as I find out!

Sometimes, the most simple moment is also the most profound.

Maybe its looking up and seeing two miracles walking across the grass.

It can bring a love and sadness and joy so strong it will bring you to your knees. In public. Surrounded by so many others. Others that see your face and know so many of your thoughts. And will get down on their knees with you and bless God, or fate or whatever power they believe in.

A look to the left. A quick glance. A child that survived cancer. A child that was left in the darkness of the night, just before dawn.

They shouldn't be here.

We should be broken by loss. Or aching with empty arms for a child that never was.


Their arms are here. Wrapped around us.

Their hearts are ours - for loving and safe keeping.

Their laughter and tears are a part of our days and nights.

What they add to our lives is not measurable.

And mostly, we forget, in the everyday sameness of life, just what an astounding blessing this day brings.

Until we look up. And catch a glimpse out of the corner of our eyes.

Of two miracles. Walking through the grass.

You know, this was written by a friend several years ago. The commentary was great, and now it is exactly what I feel. 

I took the picture, August 1st, 2008, the day before my brain injury. The injury that has now been completely healed by God, even when the doctors said I would never get better. 

I am thankful that my sister is alive and with us. God protects and heals.  I have seen that in my life. I can only pray that she will get better.

Beautiful. Both the picture and the words.
Your mom just told me that you are completely healed. I am unbelievably thrilled to hear that. Our God is an awesome God!

The whole post still takes my breath away. It was just a total God Smack.

How thankful I am that I handed you my camera on that day. (Even if C was totally jealous and threw a fit about to me.)
