Today was thrilling. 

To be reunited with my church family, and to have the privilege of assisting in the leading of musical worship, filled me with more joy than I expected. It felt as though I'd been gone for so long! 

So many hugs and "I've missed you"s. 

I'm so thankful for the group of believers God has allowed me to be a part of these past 5 1/2 years. It's so hard to imagine being away from them when we move to Mexico this summer. I'm constantly praying that God will provide people cut from the same cloth to be our local church family over there. People to encourage us, to challenge us, to check on us. To do life with us. 

I read this today and I couldn't agree more: Church is who we are, not where we go.

It's a beautiful thing.


March 3rd: What makes you happy?

One of the little things that make me happy is having fresh flowers in my home.

Things that give me JOY.
My amazing savior, Jesus.
