  1. better together

    those faces and big smiles? that’s happiness. we are so very happy together.

  2. a little update

    October 28, 2011 by louissa

    i make 4 cups of coffee every morning. only 4. i used to make this small of a  pot on the sunday mornings when i would find myself putting a worship set list together far before anyone else was waking. the coffee was always terrible those mornings (i decided that i just didn’t know how to make anything under 10 cups). i’m happy to say that i’ve now mastered the art of brewing such a small pot.

    i’m currently eating a blueberry muffin given to the husband and i by our friendly neighbors. today another neighbor is dropping by to say hello. and the first day of louissa-at-home-while-the-husband-goes-to-work? a new friend and then a new sister dropped by to see how i was.

    speaking of “louissa-at-home-while-the-husband-goes-to-work” days — there haven’t been many. just one this past wednesday. then i’ve had him all to myself yesterday and will again today which makes our honeymoon period seem even longer. sure, the only reason i’m getting these extra moments is because he’s not been feeling well and was told not to go to work, but he’s still with me. all day long.

    so don’t worry about me, i continue to be spoiled like always.

  3. dream

    October 26, 2011 by louissa


    it’s true that it felt like a dream. from the minute i woke on october 15 to today — it seems unreal. a wedding celebration, a covenant made, a move on the very same day — everything turned upside down and i was given a new life.

    my husband is currently on the kitchen floor fixing something underneath the stove, home from our honeymoon yesterday and starting to live real life together. dinner dishes remain, a candle flickers on our kitchen island, laundry is folded in piles on our couch, and i sit here wondering how all this came to be. i have a home. i’m making a home. and i have a husband who i love so fiercely.

    it’s perfectly wonderful and everything happy.

    and such a dream.

  4. your love is strong

    October 4, 2011 by louissa

    I look out the window
    The birds are composing
    Not a note is out of tune
    Or out of place
    I look at the meadow
    And stare at the flowers
    Better dressed than any girl
    On her wedding day

    So why do I worry?
    Why do I freak out?
    God knows what I need
    You know what I need

    the testimony is that in the midst of a horrific storm, i continue to say that trusting Him is better than any other way. - from a letter written to a friend, january 2011

    i am here only knowing the kindness of God, for i’ve experienced that God really does know what i need. i knew that i needed hope & life breathed back into my soul, but i never thought that it would come through His bringing a someone into my world. but He did. and He’s whispered His words of love over me through it all.

    and this is what my soul knows: i’m simply undone, undeserving, and wrecked by His great goodness.

    You know what i need.
