Why Read Something That’s 2000 Years Old?!

March 21, 2016

Is your Bible as dusty as this one? Do you even own a Bible that you read? I didn’t. I never read the Bible until after Austin died. I never believed it was written for me.

Can You See Him?

July 12, 2015

This picture was taken when Devin and I packed an 18-month-old Ethan into our car and “ran away from home.” About 6 months after Austin died, we desperately needed time off work.  We ran away.  Literally.

Are You “Not Quite Right”?

May 12, 2015

The coffee bin in this picture is not quite right.  The lid that is supposed to keep our coffee air tight doesn’t quite get the job done.  Why don’t I buy a new one?  Because … before Austin died, he snuck this item into the grocery cart one day. When I asked him about it, … Read moreAre You “Not Quite Right”?

What if YOU had an Appointment with GOD?

April 20, 2015

I like to change my hair color quite a bit, so before I leave the salon I always book another appointment with my stylist.  Getting my teeth cleaned is a necessary torture, so I make that appointment every six months.  I just had an appointment to have a mammogram because I am “that age” (whatever!). … Read moreWhat if YOU had an Appointment with GOD?
