Something my family and I have been praying and praying and praying for has become a reality.
Girls, my family and I have been through stress. The burden laid upon our shoulders has been heavy. My husband has been working day and night, trying his very best to stay positive and keep the faith.
Faith is courage; it is creative while despair is always destructive. ~David S. Muzzey
Yesterday...that burden was lifted.
I have had this post-it note stuck on my bookshelf in my studio since last January...
Every time I would go there to work I would see it. Some days it annoyed me more than anything. On those dark, dark days I would think...Do I have enough Faith??
Faith is putting all your eggs in God's basket, then counting your blessings before they hatch. ~Ramona C. Carroll
When those moments of doubt would creep in I would fold my arms and pray. Pray to my Father in Heaven and thank Him for all we DO have.
Here is another post-it note from my studio....
Yes, girls it is MY FAITH that has gotten me through this. OUR FAITH....my sweet husband and I's.

We still have a ways to go before we can shout from the rooftops..."We're FREE!!"
BUT things are soooo much brighter.
Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies and ambiguities and sudden, startling joys. ~Madeleine L'Engle
I experienced a sudden, startling joy yesterday. I am so grateful.
