insights from a daughter of the King, teacher, farmer's wife, and Mommy

time flies

the night he was born 
i loved with a love i didn't know was possible
it didn't matter how i got where i was
and that others disapproved
and that the future was unclear
it didn't matter that i was student teaching in three weeks
it didn't matter that there was less than $100 in my bank account

all that mattered was him
he was everything


fast forward six years.....

my heart is still growing for the love i have for him
and it still doesn't matter what happens tomorrow, next week, next month
and it still doesn't matter how much money is in my bank account
he is what matters


Happy Birthday Owen!

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
