This is an old picture but one from our beginnings. Yesterday I had to sit through a talk about abortion and the procedures used. It was incredibly hard on many levels. But it made me want to hug this woman right here even more. I'm sure she thought about it. She was so young and in a place where she didn't want to be pregnant. Couldn't be. Yet she chose life for our (hers and mine) little boy. She told me recently she can always be happy and peaceful knowing she did something wonderful for someone else. Her story (whether she will always know it or not) is going to impact many. I don't think she knew that at the time. But @chloefury you are going to give women hope and a future because of your choices. Aside from E, I love you for opening my heart and eyes to a world beyond that which has been comfortable for me. Our relationship has given me a reason to reach out to women outside of church walls - to the hurting and the hopeless. To those in the worst of conditions. You helped fuel my compassion even further. I love you and love your equally big heart for others. You are more amazing than you dare to believe. ❤ #adoption #openadoption #crisispregnancy #birthmom #birthmomstrong

These two. I love them will all my heart! At church today the win wasn't found in the message or in worship. Today J-Man hit a rough patch. There were tears. There were harsh words. There was missing out on class.
But while sitting in "big church" came a holy moment. A moment where a little boy let the words being sung over him diffuse his hurting heart. As the music ended and I sat down, he sweetly leaned in and whispered "I'm sorry mommy" and this momma melted and followed with an "I'm sorry too and I love you."
A place we come with all our broken. All our mistakes. All our tears. And Jesus in a way only he can meets us. Frees us. Loves us with whispers of "I've forgiven you and I love you."
