Links and prayers

Sometimes things are complicated, and sometimes the harvest is oh-so-much smaller than we hoped or longed for. I have lots on my heart, but not so much space to wrestle through it. Hopefully I can share more soon. 
For now, some links and some prayer requests for you, my faithful friends.

Silver and Gold by Ben Bishop for DL Mayfield. This is one of my favorite things I've read in a long time. For realz.

My girl Shannan at Flower Patch Farmgirl went to Ethiopia with BlogABLE, and her first post from her trip? It did me in y'all.

Hector Black Forgives the Man who Murdered His Daughter 
I'd also love for you guys to be praying for Diana. A few days ago her son (Kaden!) was born, after his birth they discovered some severe heart problems. Sound familiar? I know, right? So I cant stop thinking about her little guy and praying for her heart and for peace and healing and wisdom over the whole situation. I'd love for all of you to be praying too, and you can find updates on her blog

You can also be praying for my friend Duffy, her two year old daughter Kaylee is currently undergoing treatment for leukemia. You can follow their story here, and keep the prayers coming!

One more thing: one of our girls, who we have known for nearly seven years now, is having her baby as we speak. She's sixteen and just started her sophomore year of high school. Needless to say, the whole situation could use your prayers, particularly because they want her to see a cardiologist because of some irregularities they heard. Please pray!

I am grateful to everyone who covers our family in prayer, and I know we for sure wouldn't have made it through our time with Caden in the hospital without your prayers sustaining and carrying us, and I hope for the same grace to cover these sweet families right now. My heart feels heavy to imagine where they are, especially since it's not hard for me to close my eyes and be right back there. . . Thanks so much for praying, and for following our journey and being such an important part of our family and our lives and what we do. Seriously, I mean that.

    1. Not weird. Totally mutual :-) Been thinking about you!!!!!

  6. I love you so much and your heart and your family! AND I am totally coming to Georgia in October!!! I'll email you the details! Praying for YOU today!

  7. Interesting, I stumbled upon your blog via Allie's years ago (when she was still blogging or maybe it was FB, not sure, either way because of her)...and now you speak of Kaden and I stumbled upon his mama's blog earlier today because of a friend of mine who lives in TX. And yes, it's the same Kaden. Small small world. I'll be praying for all above.

  8. I love, love, love the picture of Jayci with her little basket. Precious in every way.
    I am going to read the forgiveness post.

  9. You know what I can't forgive? My cousin. At our family reunion, she would not let my Uncle Tom ride how with her to Clarion. We were about 20 minutes from Clarion. He lives literally 5 minutes from her house. She wouldn't let him get in her car. She doesn't like my Uncle Tom because he is dirty and a little smelly and he has never had a job. It just made me so mad. Tonight I was talking to it about my mom and I told my Mom that I feel so badly for feeling this way, but I just can't forgive her for not loving my Uncle. We used to be really good friends.


I LOVE hearing from you. Thank-you for reading and interacting, and being the best!
