Safe & Sound

Wow, the last three days are a blur. Our flights to Miami, La Paz, & Santa Cruz went rather well except for the fact that Keith and I did not sleep on the overnight flight. Caleb slept all night (I promise a post on how we accomplished that!). When we finally arrived in Santa Cruz…

Almost there!

We have a long layover in Santa Cruz right now, so I figured I would let everyone know we are well. Remarkably, Caleb slep all night in a hammock we made from the Moby wrap and airplane trays (I’ll write more on that later) and our luggage arrived as well! Thank you for your prayers…we…

Demolishing Security

At dinner with family friends Sunday night, I was struck by a passage out of the book Daily With The King. The author (W Glyn Evans) describes how God wants us to know and trust him; God “demolishes our security” in what seems most important in order to force us to find our security in…

Momma’s Sorry

Today has been a rough day for the little monkey and his momma. We woke up and had a pretty routine morning: feeding, snuggles, baby massage, reading a book (he’s a huge Eric Carle fan), and nap time. When he fell asleep, I headed downstairs to eat breakfast, work on some projects, and wrap some…
