Found this hidden beauty at the top of Mount Evans. It made me think of how small this beautiful creation was that God made at the top of a mountain. It was the only one I could find. I could easily have missed it and I almost didn't go on the hike. Isn't that how life is sometimes. We miss the beauty that surrounds. We miss the opportunities that he lays before us. Maybe we're scared, preoccupied, or just not seeking him to be aware. But when we take the time to see the small beauties around is the most beautiful thing is revealed. Our worth in Christ.

Rest

  Did you know today is International Bereaved Mother's Day. The Sunday before Mother's Day was honored for mothers who have had to say goodbye to their children too soon.

Coming from such a broken childhood and young adult life I remember when my husband and I got married I was so in love with him and looked past all the brokenness that could come with marriage. So when we were faced with the hardest time our marriage would ever face the very first year I was completely broken. After losing our child and facing reality after her funeral that we were with out her,... I didn't know how to be mom without a child, a woman in this world again, and a wife to my husband who was grieving too. It was tough. We faced an emotional journey of two … [Read more...]
