Be Still

Life has been on quite the roller coaster over the past few weeks. I know I’ve shared with you guys that there have been some hard moments for us, but I have to tell you… we’ve had some amazing moments over the past few weeks as well. This weekend was rough for our family and yet this coming week has some incredible things we’re so looking forward to. I know that’s the natural way of things in life. That there are soaring highs and crashing lows. It’s just always more obvious when those highs and lows come back to back to back.


My cousin’s wife recently started a new Etsy shop (she does beautiful work – check it out here) and I just fell in love with this Be Still piece she created. This is where I am right now. Even in the busy-ness of life, I am taking time to be still. To be still and know that He is God. To be still and take time to mourn the hard things. And to be still and rejoice in the good. Because there is so much good even in this broken world.

Thanks to all of you who have prayed for us, supported us, checked in on us, and loved on us over these past few weeks. God is faithful, my friends.

Love Rach

  4. A wonderful reminder and such a wonderful print. Definitely a perfect time of year for that. Sometimes it’s hard to be still and sometimes it’s exactly what’s needed to do.
