Dear Sawyer

I haven't been able to do one of these in a long time.
My aunt moved about an hour away so I had not been able to see my cousin!

I love this adorably cute chubby baby. SO MUCH.
Check out that style.

WORD.

Last weekend he came and stayed with us. I had not seen him in over a month!!
He was excited to see everyone, and freaked out jumping on the trampoline. He slept through the night in the pack and play, but early Sunday morning cuddled next to me while we woke up.
My prayer is that God's hand will be on this little man all the days of his life.

Golden September

"Nature's first green is gold, her hardest hue to hold."

-Robert Frost


I love fall. It's my favorite time of year.  The weather cools down, leaves start changing colors and the light gets a warm golden glow in the evenings. You start pulling out your sweatshirts, wearing your favorite knit hat, and drinking more coffee than you ever thought possible. Friends begin having bonfires & parties, you roast smores, drink spiced cider and you sit around laughing, talking and singing. 

This fall I'm looking forward to growing closer to God. I have plans & aspirations to go to bible college next year and this fall I want to spend time reading, praying and studying to see where and what God wants me to do next. 
This month is exciting.
September. 
Month of surprises & hope.

Love

Love, true love, is powerful.

"The most flaming affections can quickly cool in the heart of man. His love is like fire in the hearth - it blazes, flickers, then goes out. But God's love is like fire in the sun. It never fails. In the creature, love is like the waters of a river, rising and falling again; in God, like the waters of the sea, which is always full and knows no ebb or flow. Nothing can destroy of change His love where He has sent it; and neither can it be corrupted or conquered."
