Joy or Sorrow.

stored in: Life and tagged: ,

Remember that little tiger striped onesie from the last post? It has a story to tell. I must admit I did not rush out, bursting with joy, and purchase it for just this occasion. No. Rather, it was purchased over three years ago in a thrift shop, on a whim, and at the urging of [...]

It’s Been A While.

I could make a list of excuses about why I haven’t written since Thanksgiving. Mostly, I guess I haven’t been sure of what to say. Or maybe I was afraid of what I might say. I do feel like I owe some sort update to our friends and family – a progress report regarding our [...]

LBC {Last Bible Club}.

stored in: Life and tagged:

This post could probably also be called “In which I post too many pictures of myself”, for which I apologize in advance. Today I held the final Bible Club before we say, “Good bye.” We did all the normal things, like sing songs, color and enjoy a snack, but we also marked the occasion by [...]

Departure Date.

stored in: Life and tagged:

In just two weeks, we’ll be boarding an airplane headed for America. Crazy, huh? Two WEEKS! I don’t really know how I feel, I’m too busy taking down pictures, packing away kitchen stuff, using up everything in my fridge/freezer, and filling tubs and bags with things to share with friends before we leave. At this [...]

When Auntie Cheryl shows up in Ankamu with her bag of tricks, a flurry of excitement is sure to follow. She already posted a lot of sweet pictures on her blog. Make sure you take a look – and also, if you have a minute, back up and read the previous posts about the Arm [...]

Ever feel like your life is one big question mark? Or, if not your life, than at least your future? Some people like to talk about their five and ten year plans. Us? Well, lately it seems we’ve been residing at the corner of I Don’t Know and Well, Maybe… We haven’t said anything here [...]

Simple Joys.

stored in: Life and tagged: ,

Sometimes when your mind and heart are busy mulling over biggish things, it’s good for the soul to revel in the small joys of every day life. That’s my brief explanation of sorts for posting two quiet picture-posts in a row. This guy has been begging to make a kite. One day, his friends showed [...]

Good Things.

stored in: Life and tagged: , , ,

I’m no Martha, and I don’t have a whole crew of editors to make me look good, but here are a few of my own “good things” that have been bringing a smile to my face. Sweet little lady bug. Much cuter than so many of the bugs we see around here. Baby pumpkins at [...]

It’s hard to know exactly what to post sometimes. I know many of you are still praying for our land situation, and I want to keep you updated. To be perfectly honest, it sort of feels like we’ve been the metaphorical fire hydrant in life recently. {You know, “some days you’re the dog, and some [...]

We’re still here. Still farming. Before I get into the details though, I just have to say, “Thank you.” We were blown away by the way our prayer request was snatched up and passed around. Prayers were multiplied much more than we could ever know, I’m sure. Family and friends, we felt your support as [...]
