Happy Birthday, Alex and a Memorial Day thank you

I have seen these really great images on Pinterest and some blogs I read, so I got inspired to do one for Alex today in honor of his birthday. Professional photographer I am not, but he was happy about the results!

For Alex:
Happy Birthday, big boy! Your Daddy and I love you more than you can imagine and are so grateful that God entrusted your precious life to us as your parents. You have always been Mom's superhero and Dad's buddy. We are proud of how you use the abilities and talents with which God has gifted you, but we love you for you and you alone! We pray for you each day and seek wisdom to guide you in spirit and truth as you grow toward being a man. We wish for you no more and no less than a life characterized and defined by the transforming power of Christ. We pray that as you grow you will make the most of every opportunity God has given you to follow hard after Jesus, to love people, and to be a light in this world. Happy 10 years -- we cannot wait to see what our Father has in store for you in your next decade.

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

Love you always,
Mom and Dad

Happy Memorial Day to all of you! Thank God for the people throughout history and still today who are fighting for freedom and justice. Thank you to every service man and woman,  and for military families past and present who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.

Loving and Learning,

About Me

My photo
I love Jesus Christ, am a seeker of beauty, and am a grateful child of God who would be lost and hopeless were it not for His grace. I am learning to walk in love, see interruptions as divine appointments, and value people and relationships above agendas and results. I pray my life is grace-filled, and brings joy and encouragement to everyone I know and meet. We are a family of 6, built by God through love, birth, and adoption, living in the beauty and the struggle that accompanies parenting kids from hard places. Got questions? Email me at
