blogs i love.

I know this is weird, but I have been falling in love with some blogs lately. Since I started blogging more frequently, I have started reading more blogs also. There have just been some stories that have gotten to me. I wanted to share them because they are so sweet & powerful.

{ Libby's }

I have been reading my friend, Libby's blog this fall as she is going through chemotherapy to fight cancer. As I would read her blog every few days, I would find myself thinking about how she has so gracefully fought this terrible disease, without complaining or grumbling, but trusting that God is in the midst of this really hard stuff...


 & then I found {Edie's blog }

I just stumbled upon it while browsing some blogs before Christmas. I fell in love with the turquoise cabinets, but it was her perspective on life that peaked my interest. I looked at her blog again a few days after Christmas and discovered that her house had burned down over Christmas. And then she shared her perspective on life in the midst of losing her entire home days before Christmas. Can you imagine? I cannot...


Then I found Kelle Hampton's sweet photography blog...

I noticed quickly that one of her daughter's has down syndrome. Kelle wrote up the birth story of her daughter Nella. Wow. It was just incredible. I have just started to explore her site, but I have thought about their story since I found her site. Really. I can't explain how good it is. Just read it.

See I make plans for my life all the time. And frequently they do not go as I hope. These women have felt simliarly, I'm sure. Our expectations are not fulfilled, which can cause us to be angry, disappointed...or you can choose to trust that God knows what he is doing. In the midst of all this hard stuff, I see these women rejoicing. I think that is what gets me. The belief that God is still good & is still God no matter what life brings...

What are you reading that is inspiring you?

oh  & i dropped Philip's name...since I am really the blogger...sorry boo...
