Our life lately has been made up of big, important, momentous things.
We've had lots of trips to the capital, and surgery, and family and friends come to visit.
We've made trips, and seen God provide abundantly for our needs, and rushed from place to place, and activity after activity.

We've gotten behind in school work, and house work, and the day to day things that usually must be done for life to go forward.
We've had lots of loud days, vibrant days, days filled to the brim and dripping over with excitement.
Days packed full of fun, days crammed full of memories we won't soon forget.
Days bubbling over with laughter and silliness and stories and games.

And now......
we've had to say too many good-byes....
good-byes to new friends and old,
those new to our lives, and those dear to our hearts.

We are in the quiet days of after......

They are part of our life.
This life that God has called us to often asks to be still and accepting
after the miracles,
after the big days,
after the trips,
after the loved ones leave,
after the excitement,
but not 
after Him.

In these quiet days, we find He is right here with us
showing us the way to slip back into the everyday,
back into this beautiful daily-ness we call our life.


  1. Your writing is every bit as beautiful as you. Miss you my friend.

  2. Love the pictures! Looks like you all had a blast! :) Love you all and miss you much! I'm glad God is here in the "after", too...and the "during" and "before". :)

  3. Lovely! I enjoy your pictures and your words. This post especially spoke to me. Thank you.
