you_make_beautiful_things Not normally a foodie posting person but had to share this delicious salad with everyone- spinach, strawberries, feta, avo, & red onion- the strawberries we picked fresh this morning and I swear our valley produces the sweetest, most tasty strawberries of anywhere I have lived. #nomnom #strawberriesfordays 10h

you_make_beautiful_things Struck once again by the fragility of life as I learned late last night that one of our dear colleagues from our YWAM days in Texas passed away from cancer. She was an amazing woman who served God faithfully in Mongolia and all over the world. Evelyn Moyer truly fought the good fight and sacrificed much to serve her savior, I wish I had known her better but I'll never forget her and her husband's stories of God's faithfulness time and time again. Cancer seems to be popping up into too many conversations and lives these days. It makes me angry that this thing that we don't even fully understand can take the lives of so many and leave us only with memories. I am posting this not only to honor an amazing individual whose life was taken too soon but also all of those that are going through similar things right now and wondering what the outcome will be. My new favorite song that I find myself singing over and over again and reminds me to not walk in fear over the future and things that I have no control whatsoever over goes like this, "You unravel me, with a melody,You surround me with a song, Of deliverance, from my enemies, Till all my fears are gone...
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
From my Mothers womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name
I’ve been born again, into your family, Your blood flows through my veins...
You split the sea, so I could walk right through it, All my fears were drowned in perfect love, You rescued me, so I could stand and sing...
For I am a child of God." You can watch the video in this link:

you_make_beautiful_things Willing myself to have a good attitude and look forward to this day after virtually no sleep last night due to neighbor's barking dogs and two calls to the police about said barking dogs. I love dogs, just not them barking in my sleep attempts all night. I even bought a special fan, used ear plugs and had my pillow over my head but to no avail. Now I have work, a four hour rather intense meeting, dr's appt, errands to run, dinner to make, children to get to all their activities, help me Lord! 4d

you_make_beautiful_things Just finished setting up for another event tonight- an auction/fundraiser for the middle school I work at. Over $45,000 in items to bid on! Wow! There's some pretty neat stuff and I'm honored to have my photography business be a part. This auction will help to raise funds needed for new playground equipment, an outdoor classroom and more. 1w

you_make_beautiful_things Miss Albert! They hatched! - Ellianna brought home a "fish terrarium" from school the other day with two fish and a couple snails. One of the fish looked rather pregnant and today while we were at school, had about 15 babies. If you look very closely, you can see a couple but they are veryyyyy teeny and like to hide. #ithinkweregonnaneedabiggerfishtank #fishfordays 1w

you_make_beautiful_things Praying for a friend who has gone through much and is facing more than one should have to bear- Isaiah 41:13 { "For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand,
Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’" } 🏻

you_make_beautiful_things I am counting my blessings today- I woke up with a splitting migraine at 3:30am, but that's not why I am thankful. I'm thankful because I realize there are others going through much worse things than a migraine. Migraines, although awful and do their best to make my work day as difficult as possible, are temporary. Eventually, they do go away. Somethings are not so, I know too many people dealing with cancer right now- some that will win the battle and others who will not. I have other friends/family who suffer from other diseases/chronic pain that just do not go away. I know I will most likely have another migraine day or two or more but I am praying for those who are facing things that quite possibly may never go away... { Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them; and I will reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth. Jeremiah 33:6 } 2w

you_make_beautiful_things These four have made me a momma, 18 years ago I never imagined I would be so blessed. Through all the good, the bad, painful migraines while trying to raise, train, and teach them, I am so thankful because they have taught me much and my faithful hubby has been there with us, supporting us every step of the way. #mothersdayblessings 3w

you_make_beautiful_things I always think about what I would do with my mom on Mother's Day if she wasn't over 1,900 miles away- I would probably make a her a lovely bouquet of roses from our garden and take her out for dinner. Happy Mother's Day to my mom, mother-in-law, grandma and all my friend who are mother's, biologically or not. Here is my bouquet for all of you, it smells amazing! 3w
