.ain't.got.no.words.

.ok.maybe.i.have.a.few.



.These. past couple of weeks at HOH have flown by. Teams coming and going. Days starting and ending. Work to be done. Babies entering the world. Most importantly many women coming and leaving their life of prostitution. We now have a full house at HOH. We have a total of 19 women..the youngest being 15..that is living in the residential program at HOH. One of the women just welcomed her 4th child..a little girl..into the world Aug. 14th.





We have a total of 26 girls living in the dorm as well.

.Needless. to say nothing is quite on campus any more. :)

.I. am a bit overwhelmed with even what to say. I just really want to share some pictures of my family here with you. I want to show you how beautiful God is through them. I want to show you who I do life with every day. This is a picture of God's heart..and mine.

.Enjoy.



God Is Able

Greater Than All We Seek
Greater Than All We Ask
He Has Done Great Things




Lifted Up
He Defeated The Grave
Raised To Life
Our God Is Able
In His Name We Overcome
For The Lord
Our God Is Able




God Is With Us
God Is On Our Side
He Will Make A Way
Far Above All We Know
Far Above All We Hope
He Has Done Great Things




God Is With Us
He Will Go Before
He Will Never Leave Us
He Will Never Leave Us




God Is For Us
He Has Open Arms
He Will Never Fail Us
He Will Never Fail Us




For The Lord
Our God Is Able

Diligence in Community

Diligence: Concientiousness in paying proper attention to a task; giving the degree of care required in a given situation

When I think of my friend Angie the word diligence is synonymous for her and how she lives her life. 
I met Angie in 2002 when I first moved to VA. She, being a pastor's daughter, serving and working in the Baptist church my family and I went to. God began to write a story of friendship, dedication, and love.

Angie, being one of the most outgoing people you've ever met. Loves the Lord with all that she has. You can't help but be her friend, no matter how far award from the Lord you are. I was intrigued by this new friend who seemed to have no cares in the world and if she did, she had a God who cared greatly about those needs. I was not all about the God she loved, yet she pursued my heart in small, intentional ways that was of the Lord's leading. 
Over the past 15 or so years Angie has remained a constant friend. No matter how many miles apart, a …

.unprocessed.

.I. don't really know how much time I'll need to fully process and think through these past six months. If you don't know this about me...I am a thinker...sometimes it's my greatest downfall. I remember it seeming so surreal that I was leaving Nicaragua up until I landed in Miami. I told Dave, one of our elders/pastors, that it just felt like the team was going to leave and I was going to say goodbye to them once again. Just weird to wrap your head around leaving somewhere like Nicaragua...more precisely...House of Hope...to enter into the world of the States.



.Two. totally different worlds.



.It's. hard to believe that I have been back in the states for a week now. Thinking back to life at House of Hope and just how much can and does happen in a week my heart aches knowing that I am not there walking through those changes with those precious girls and women. (Right about now is when my eyes fill with tears...hence the reason why I have not made it through this pos…

.loss.

I'm not a writer.
(Don't judge my grammar/spelling, I do what I want.) :)
I'm not a blogger.
I am a sharer. (If that's a word.)
I shared my journey through living in Nicaragua.
I shared bits and pieces here and there as life unfolded post Nicaragua.

This post is coming from something deep. Something that is deep in my heart and has been a major part of what God has been teaching me through my year and a half back in the States.

Loss. {def. : be deprived of cease to have or retain.}

What is loss?

Loss can take on many different faces through our lives.
"I lost my car keys."
"I lost my teddy bear."
"I lost my glasses."
"I lost my grandmother."
"I lost my home."
"I lost my wife/husband."
"I lost my child."
"I lost my childhood."
"I lost my friend."
"I lost my ________."

So many different emotions arise as I read those statements. Some bring up a lightness in helping a young child find their t…
