"The power of the gospel is that the only thing meant to be empty is the grave."
Got to be with our sweet family in Knoxville this weekend. Celebrating the joy and power of an empty grave today w/ cousins & candy & songs & bbq.
I've seen Him show up in tombs & shadows & heartache this year as we've walked through valleys with people we love dearly. Thankful these are places He's been before, & so grateful He walked out of them so we can enjoy the promise of His presence in the midst of every joy & trial.
So many hearts were moved by the love of Jesus this month @YoungLife camp! Mine included. Grateful beyond measure.
Took our little Belle in her boots to see Beauty & the Beast tonight. On the way home , she said, she wanted to marry a guy "not like Gaston, but more like a guy named drew, like my daddy." So thankful that she already knows what's good in a man b/c she sees it so clearly in her dad. So grateful to be home with our precious kids too. Love how some time away makes you appreciate home all the more.

Amen and amen.
