I snapped this picture the other night of Justin reading/looking with Lydia at Jim Curious: A Voyage to the Heart of the Sea in 3-D Vision. I reviewed this book six years ago and I am pleased that we are sharing it now with the 3.5 year old! It’s a book that has always made the cut for keeping through our many moves and also when regularly purging the bookshelf.
I turned 35 this week. In turning another year older, I look back at what a year 34 was for me. It was a truly a busy time where it didn’t quite feel like I was able to catch a breath. There were many ups and downs and I felt honestly at one point like I aged ten years. There was good mixed with the not so good but through it all I am grateful. God was and still is in it all.Continue reading
We just celebrated Owen’s 9th birthday last week! We are blessed with another year and couldn’t be more thankful. We are so proud of the young man he’s becoming.
This year he requested a Creeper face character cake which is a popular character in his favorite game “Minecraft”. With black fondant, a print off of the face from Bing, and frosting I went to work and the results weren’t bad!
I am not ready to share the fully story yet but I wanted to let my readers here know why the long absence with zero updates. It is because we lost our baby girl back in November ( no heartbeat at the 20 week anatomy ultrasound) and I couldn’t bring myself to talk about it or resume work during the last month and half.
Our baby girl Beatrice Elise Allegra Lowmaster which means “joy pledged to God” is safe in the arms of our Lord and Savior and we can rest with peace in knowing that truth. Our hearts will forever ache for the moments we never will get to spend together here on this earth with her but we will always savor the moments we did. She’s dearly loved and deeply missed.
“So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again; then you will rejoice, and no one can rob you of that joy.” John 16:22 NLT
