{ down pour }


The days are going by painfully fast.

Jack will be two entire weeks old tomorrow.

If only there was a button I could push that would allow the the days go by in slow motion.

He is already growing like a little weed, has a ferocious little appetite and weighed in the other night at 9 lbs 3 oz.

I was surprised and blessed beyond words by the little shower that a bunch of you dear blogging ladies threw for me. Can't begin to tell you how cared for and cherished all your precious words and amazing handmade gifts left us feeling. Gosh, but you ladies are good at loving.

Oh and we sold our house.

That was no small miracle let me tell you.

Signed on it last Friday, just minutes before we left out the door for David's brother's wedding in ID. which was beautiful, and wonderful and oh so amazing that we were able to be there.

The inspection was yesterday and everything checked out great.

We are going this afternoon to start our house hunt.

Our closing date is June 9 th, barely over three weeks from now.

Our heads are spinning and hearts are overwhelmed by God's unfailing faithfulness.

So much more to tell you but that will have to wait.

For now, just know that we are drenched in the love and goodness of God.

And even though we have no idea where all this is going, we are holding on for dear life to the only One who does. Praying each one of you are experiencing a similar down pour of grace in your beautiful lives.

I can't begin to find words for the feeling I had in my heart when I opened your blog and saw that picture. So sweet, so much love and innocence, and those smiles... definitely a picture to treasure for a lifetime. Congratulations on selling your home. I know God has amazing plans for you and I can't wait to see where this adventure leads you. Blessings to you, my sweet friend, and lots of hugs too!
