Time just keeps finding a way to fly by, and I keep looking for a way to hold on to it...

We've lived on the surface of the sun for 9 1/2 years now, all but 3 months of our married life. Chris and I didn't expect to be here long - only 6 months or so, and yet here we find ourselves all this time later, with 2 other people in our family now.

There was an element of simplicity to our lives when we first lived here, just the simple joy of each other and a handful of friends. Loving Jesus, loving one another, building relationships ~ that's what we did. It was beautiful. Sincere. Heartfelt. Honest. Pure. It was all the things I want my children to cherish.

Fast forward to today. Today feels full, confusing, muddled, secretive, sad. Not everyday, but today it does.

So for today, I choose to delight. Not because it comes easily, but because I have reason to. And I hope that simplicity can return.



  1. Well I am glad that you are still in the land of the sun;)

  2. I love the honesty of your post.

    I feel blessed to have shared in this adventure in your life.
