these rattling sticks have been beating out their sorrowful rhythm all winter, like old dead bones, but here they are bleeding life again, bursting with scarlet naked hope. there is resurrection! there is life!
just yesterday my brother and sister-in-law (shannon's sister) had their third baby, a healthy baby boy named eli jacob. what a perfect time for a newborn, you know? with a whole creation of newborns to journey with - life is bursting at the seams.
the life in my house is always bursting. the other day i walked into cade's room to find both jack and cade in cade's crib. jack told me was just cuddling with cade a little bit.
happy to be alive,
