It has been awhile since I have posted and I really don't have much to share. The Lord has been shaking my life and for that I am grateful. It feels scary to not know what will happen next, but God has really challenged me to TRUST Him! Each day I have to choose to trust the Lord and not allow the uncertainties, loneliness, and anxiety
to invade my life.

"We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you."
-Psalm 33:20-22

My Golden Birthday

A golden birthday is when you turn the same age as the day of the month your birthday falls on.
This year I turned 29 on January 29th!

Kurtis had so many surprises for me this year: poems, notes, coupon book, breakfast in bed, gourmet dinners, festive decorations, massages and more! He really went all out and I felt very celebrated and loved. He is so creative and sweet! The most amazing gift was a book he complied of sweet notes from my family and friends. I was very overwhelmed with joy and encouraged by all of the notes. Thank you! It was fun to have a few celebrations over my Birthday weekend as well!
