{Mr&Mrs}

We’re off friends! On a new adventure. We are just shy of being married for 2 months. We’re learning what it means to love deeply, forgive freely, and to move in the eb and flow of uncertainty. That’s life, isn’t it? It’s been a hard couple of months. Months filled with some serious love, joy,…

…Because of March 16, 2013!

“Even The Winter” What if we find ourselves beneath the snow, our warmest words all frozen in our throats and all we feel is left out in the cold, you and I?What if the days grow short and lose their light? What if the coals burn black and the embers die? and we can’t find…

Onward and Upward: 2 Days and We’ll be One

Two more days, folks… 2 days. 7 1/2 months of engagement have (crawled) by, and in 2 days my whole life will be joined to another’s. Our souls now joined to Christ, will be partnered for life. Comrades in going onward and upward. Soon two souls will be joined for the rest of our travels…

back again.

Hello blogging friends. I’m back, and taking just a few of the moments this evening at home in Indy to blog while I have internet access. My heart is rather content to pour out some words here, sitting on the blue couch with tan trim next to my Dearest Daniel while my sister and mom…

In 7 months they’ll call me Mrs. Ng

Yep! That’s right. 7 Months from today, on March 16, 2013, I’ll be getting a new last name. Dan + Kate = the future Mr. and Mrs. Ng. wow. The sheer overwhelming nature of all of this, the story I wanted to write down in its completed form, and the planning-mode I’ve been in have…

from the fullness

I just have to write, to list the things of God, and how He has been so very near to me these past weeks (and even before when I could not see it). I tend to have realizations and ponderings while I am either 1) driving or traveling somewhere or 2) in the shower.  So,…

of thunder and sun

Here I share with you a song from Josh Garrels that I ran to the other day (pretending you are a maiden faith-warrior on the treadmill is much more fun than running without music. Just saying). “Rise” by Josh Garrels “In surrender and despair Before I’m dead, I’ll take the last climb Up the mountain,…

Spurgeon and those who wandered before us

“Let no agitation distress you, but be quiet from fear of evil. Whatsoever cometh upon the earth, you, beneath the broad wings of Jehovah, shall be secure. Stay yourself upon his promise; rest in his faithfulness, and bid defiance to the blackest future, for there is nothing in it direful for you. Your sole concern…

9 months, and sojourners on the way

A kingdom that cannot be shaken: this is what we have been given. As I listened to Josh Garells play his indie-folk music at Redeemer Presbyterian church Downtown, I heard truth, a strain of thought he commented upon between two of the songs. He was speaking of being out in the desert. He said that…

among fruit trees

Evening, and a porch embraced in screen after sister has driven us to Grandpa’s. Remember, those ‘soft-drinks’ and icecream a grandma and grandpa’s house staple treat? We sit inside, and then out of doors as the breeze blows cooler, and robins hop among fruit trees.   I want to run through them, break away from…

When you need to remember that He uses it all…

“Record my lament; list my tears on your scroll — are they not in your record?” {Psalm 56:8} What do you do when your heart screams “NO!” and “What about me?” How do you pick up the “yes” of this morning, this new day of more waiting on the Lord?  “My heart is in anguish…

glory be

This morning I wiped off our kitchen island; the crevices of granite tiles reminding me of the kitchen island of my childhood with cream squares and dark grout. It was one of those moments where you feel that you really haven’t grown up at all, or have at least, come full circle. Wiping down the…
