Who hasn’t sat around a campfire and watched how firelight changes the faces that surround the glowing embers? There is something so mysterious and lovely about the dancing flames and the charcoaled smoke as it rises into the evening sky. The flames - the light - transform ordinary logs of wood into a picturesque bonfire. As indigo ash whispers through the night air, we breathe in a new aroma, resigning ourselves to the blaze.
When we think about community, we often reflect upon the wonderful times we've shared by a fireside...a warm hearth in a friend's home, Christmas morning with precious family, or sweet sharing and song around a bonfire. Perhaps this vision most reminds us of our great cloud of witnesses; the inspiration behind this page. As we share our stories & photographs here, our hope is that we may renew, refresh, and rekindle our friendships by this fireside...

"...if my fire is not large, it is yet real, and there may be those who can light their candle at its flame." — A. W. Tozer, foreword to The Pursuit of God
Best moment this month: Too many to recount…especially two beautiful baby showers thrown by dear friends- a sweet time of celebrating God’s faithfulness and goodness to our family!
Movement: Less jabs and more rolls and elbows/knees sticking out! At our 32 week appointment, little man was measuring “right on track” and is already head down…what an overachiever! ;-)
Food Cravings/Aversions: Ice cream... in any form. Milk. Waffles with fruit. Whipped Cream. Iced Decaf Lattes!
What I miss: Sushi. And I had a random craving for sangria :-) (Note to self: must make in the Summer!)
Sleep: Sleeping great, so thankful. It’s just a matter of time before my precious sleep is interrupted by an even MORE precious baby boy! What I am looking forward to: Watching Kenny become a dad, watching my parents become grandparents, and my brother become an uncle. So many wonderful firsts!
Belly Changes: I'm getting pretty big :)
Symptoms: Braxton hicks, out the wazoo. Super good excuse to put my feet up and enjoy a Dairy Queen blizzard…I mean, a tall glass of nutritious water. Prayer for this month:Lord, our hearts are overflowing with thankfulness. Our hope is in You all day long and our desire is to trust You more and more as we journey towards parenthood. Continue to work in our marriage and in our hearts individually as we prepare to lead and guide Micah. For Your glory!
