a promised gift

this weekend was for being away and for being out of reach of cell phone signals - a place where refreshment comes easily. we arrived to a lake house full of family and woke saturday to more babies and aunts and pancakes and eggs. 

God is a god of gifts and rest, both of which He gave to us abundantly this weekend. because in the mountains, even a day of painting cabin bunks and canvases means an escape.

Always love the pix! :)

Especially of the "artist", Ian sure looks focused on his work.

Sounds like a great weekend!

Still Praying.

Oh how lovely for you both! So glad for you! Getting away is such a necessity sometimes, especially from technology! :) Love in Christ,

I recently saw the video of your wedding from Desiring God on Facebook. I was intrigued by your story but also by some words your pastor spoke about Christ. I went on to read your blog from the beginning, Like your Facebook page and follow you on instagram. I have prayed for you and Ian often in the last few days. I am looking forward to seeing more art!
