soli deo gloria.

renderings of my heart that all lead back to this truth: Glory to God and God alone.

never been so thankful to see the back of an airplane seat. (and an exit row at that.) grateful for one more stop on this very long day :) thank you Jesus for your sovereignty in all things. #getustoZambia (at Chicago O’Hare International Airport)

meet Lexie Grace (’s head). she says she doesn’t like pictures but I’m not sure I believe her. this is her third trip to Zambia and she’s the sassiest little thing I’ve ever met. #besties  (at Chicago O’Hare International Airport)

mechanical problems and delays. waking up at 2:30 and still sitting in the Birmingham airport. being reminded that He has gone before us. and casting our anxieties on Him.  (at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport)

since most of my day will be spent in the air tomorrow, happy {early} Father’s Day to this guy. papa joe is one of the most gracious, kind, tender-hearted, and loving men I’ve ever known. he has shown us all what it means to live and walk by faith. God blessed our family so much in sending him our way nine years ago. he exemplifies what a father should be in every way. I am grateful for you, joe joe! love you to the moon and back :)

in two days I will begin my journey to meet this sweet girl. Matron has already changed my life and my heart in so many ways. thank you, Jesus, for loving me and giving me the capacity to love her and her land.

2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
