you make beautiful things.

We are finishing our seventh year of marriage. Seven years. In Vegas sevens are lucky. In Bibles sevens mean rest.

That has been the theme of this year for us. Rest.

It is harder than you'd think. Before committing, before serving, before joining, we have been called to rest. In these seven years we've done 3 pregnancies, we've run a small business, we've served in a church, we've made A LOT of meals and brownies and mistakes. God called us to rest this year, to step down and un-commit. It has not been easy for me. I like a purpose.

I don't know the whys of this season. He is always faithful. He is always good. He makes beautiful things out of us.
