we’re trusting whatever the next chapter holds because we know the Author. // said goodbye to my best friend today as he is moving to north carolina for a 6 month training program! not knowing where he will be located after this training program is tough but we are trusting God’s unchanging perfect plan for our lives. i’m so thankful that when everything else is seeming to change that we have a God that stays the same. please pray that a position will open up in memphis so that we will (God-willing) be able to call this place home one day!

on february 16, grant and i were driving when we came across 2 dogs walking on the median of the interstate. grant slammed on his breaks and after 30 minutes we FINALLY got them to trust us and were able to get them into his car. we knew we had to get them checked out, so we drove to the nearest shelter. they told us they had to hold them for 5 days after being fixed but that we could always come back for them. after the longest 5 days wondering if they were okay, we decided we couldn’t leave them in an overcrowded shelter to die, so we got them and brought them to my apartment to foster. we instantly fell in love.. after all they had been through, they were loving, trusting, and loyal. we named them ally and missy, since we found them on the AL and MS state line. we spent the past 2 weeks with them- every day, every hour, every second. and i’m posting this today to announce that BOTH DOGS ARE OFFICIALLY ADOPTED and in their new homes!!! i wanted to post this to say a giant thank you to every single person that has shared my posts or kept up with the girls. a lot of people have asked me why we didn’t just keep them if we loved them so much. if you know me at all, you know my passion for dogs and how bad i wanted to keep both girls but grant and i are both graduating and getting full time jobs in may.. so we put aside our selfish desires for the dogs and allowed them to go to the homes they deserved. fostering dogs, especially 2 of the sweetest dogs i’ve ever come across, has been one of the hardest, most confusing, heart breaking and rewarding things ever. it has been such a bittersweet experience all the way around, but i am so thankful that both girls are settled into their new homes where they both have a new life. i already miss them SO much but i will never, ever forget them. i can smile knowing that they’re off the side of the road and living happy and healthy lives. out of all the pictures we took with them, these are the ones i cherish the most. they’re blurry and unposed and imperfect but they remind me of our story with them. thank you again to everyone that took the time to keep up with their story- ally and missy will be forever grateful.❤️❤️
4th valentine’s and it only gets better !!! thanks for making everyday feel like valentine’s day❣️❣️
more of you + less of me. 2018 is going to be a year of uncertainty for me. from graduating college to finding my first job, amongst other things, it’s a year that will hold a lot of upcoming changes (and did i mention i hate change?) i’ve decided to read the Bible in a year because Lord knows with my worrying INFJ personality that the only thing that can keep me sane is shifting my eyes from myself and my problems to Him and His word. i’ll continue posting my thoughts on my account @liveloveddd so feel free to keep up with my reading there! // ALSO: felt the Lord calling me to try and give up secular music , so pleaseee comment some of your favorite worship artists, albums, or songs!!! my new favorite is ‘pieces’ by steffany gretzinger!! LOOK. IT. UP.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIGGLE!!! thanking the Lord that He brought you into the world & that i get to go through life with you!!! i have a feeling 22 is going to be the best year yet☺️☺️
