5 Minute Friday: Vivid



As the momentum builds, the world turns black
Voices and movement swirl around
But there is no consciousness of what is happening outside of my body
All faculties are irreversibly drawn to the deep, dark pain
Concentration wholeheartedly directed to the task at hand
In between times I verbally remind myself, "I can do this!"
And then breathe, just breathe
Soon it all escalates to a roar
The world is dead to me
The hurt, all that matters
And out of this raging, searing pain
She comes
Plopped onto my chest
The most vivid, coherent image I've seen in hours
Bringing with her relief and peace and pure brilliant joy

An incredible journey , for sure Gina and what a wonderful "light at the end" --for both Mom and wee Renly.

I love this phrase "Bringing with her relief and peace and pure brilliant joy"

Isn't it amazing this gift God has given us in our children :)

Giving birth is perhaps one of the most vivid things we can experience. I loved the picture- you look wonderfully beautiful and peaceful.

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

~ Sally Clarkson

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
