Transition

Photography c/o: Shannon Worley Photography
Our family has been going through a lot of transition these past two years. There have been many nights of wrestling and praying for answers- long days of silence and endless hours of tears. Life has an odd way of sneaking up on you- catching you in the least humble moments and the darkest crevices of your mind.

I adore that we are loved so greatly that we are given a choice. We are given free will to choose between sorrow and hope. That we can embrace a renewed strength or we can surround ourselves with sorrow.

This plan- this incredible plan for our lives never ceases to amaze me. The loving embrace of old friends, the consistent miracles that have been sprinkled into our midst are an overwhelming reminder that even in our doubt- even in each wrestle with God He's been there. Gently guiding us to the perfect place and providing peace in the finest hour.

Craig and I have made some tough decisions lately- some are bound to sting and cause discomfort but we are walking confidently in the direction that we feel God is calling our family to. We have chosen forgiveness over bitterness. We have looked into the deep blue eyes of our baby and prayed for protection and wisdom.

We are getting ready to step into a new season and it feels incredibly refreshing to let go- let go of past dreams and embrace the new ones that are igniting our soul. It's the perfect start to send us soaring into the new year!
