25 baby weeks came in May
as well as did my special day
James made me himself
my birthday cake
and hid 'round the house
mint candies to take
Jaeda's gals love to dance with a man
my business cards came
as pink as we planned
then I found this shirt
to match my cards

Last week, we had the rain storm to top all rain storms. At least 20 minutes of downpour. Liddi and Jaeda were still sleeping when the rain started. Corban and I ran out to the porch in awe of the sheer power of the torrent. Neighbor...
a hammock full
first push then pull
three little kiddies scream and wiggle
moms try to speak
like stubborn bulls
but kiddies only squeal and giggle
these flowers white

a final sight
as summer's first announcing placard
drawn guys delight

found 'round the house in piles...
I've mentioned Mary before. The Mary that I was paired with through Grace's mentoring program. This is the third year that we've met, and our friendship has developed in God-ordained ways. Last year and this, she was part of an intraGrace mentoring program. And she...
