Those who sow in
tears will reap with
songs of joy.
Psalm 126:5

I painted this during a time where I believed its words
to be true, even though I did not feel it.

It hung in my old house as a reminder of what would come.
When we moved I couldn't find a place for it,
and was honestly too broken to even look at it.

Off to the attic it went.

Until two years later when I accidently broke a window
in the playhouse we were building for Halley.
Guess what was the exact size I needed to replace what was broken?

Just like God repaired what was broken in my own life.

Yesterday I read the happiest/ saddest news.
This verse immediately came to my mind.

Pray for the Macs and the journey they have in front of them.

They will sing songs of joy again soon.

God promises it.


  1. I'm not usually a crier... but I'll admit it, I wept when I read that. Which seems silly, as I've never meet them. So happy for them, sad for them, everything. But God works in mysterious ways. ;)
