months and months ago,
right after all of our Christmas celebrations,
B and i got to visit
one of our favorite places
in all the world.
just the two of us.
it was the breath of fresh air we both needed.


B knows that i love having a to do list
no matter where i am.



For the Lamb at the center of the throne
will be their shepherd;
‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’
‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’
Revelation 7:17

“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross,
so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness;

i am getting really excited for summer.
as i always do around this time of year.
and summer is not the hardest thing to imagine
as it’s been in the 80s this week.
but don’t get upset,
because just you wait,
it will be gloomy and chilly in june.
so we’ll get our winter after all.

this summer is going to be so very different for us.
so very different.
because i am going to make it different.
this summer, i am opting to do a lot
less therapies.
less of everything.
it will be life changing.
for us all.
and i just can’t wait.
we are just now getting a taste of it.
and it’s delicious.

For if, while we were God’s enemies,
we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son,
how much more, having been reconciled,
shall we be saved through his life!
Romans 5:10
