New Casa

Thank you all for praying for us and for your kind words about the loss of our baby. It makes all the difference. We feel loved.

Overall, we are doing well. In some weird ways, better than ever. Death is sobering.

As I've physically healed, my heart has followed. It's just sad - Stephen and I keep saying. And it will always be there. But even now, just a few weeks out, God is supernaturally providing healing, encouragement, and the peace that passes understanding. I'm grateful.

Also, it's good to be back to reality - fixing meals, yelling at my kids, scrubbing toilets. Thank you Lord for the mundane work before me! I have a new appreciation for regular ol' Tuesdays.

Work is therapeutic.

Another turn of events for us....we bought a new house! This is such a happy thing for our little fam. The deal was a short sale (and there was nothing short about it). We have been pursuing this house for over a year, officially had a contract on it for 9 months, and finally closed on June 6th - the day we left the hospital after the miscarriage.

Losing a baby and buying a house are in two entirely different categories as life events go, but the timing was incredible. This happy, longed for thing happened on our darkest day. You can't plan that. It was providential.

The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD Job 1:21

New house has 3 fire places and a HUGE yard. We are re-doing the kitchen and it is located on the end of a long cul-de-sac which is perfect for riding bikes. Also, several of our friends live within walking distance. Praise Jesus for new beginnings!
