to be loved.


To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us. { tim keller }

life on tour // { installment of the traveling scrapbook }

For those of you who keep up with me on Instagram, you know my various hashtags, including #travelingscrapbook. So here's an installment on the *blog* of the traveling scrapbook - a photo snapshot of where we've been since last time I posted, letting the smiles and landscapes and images speak for themselves.

We're currently in Arkansas, with another busy two weeks of tour ahead before heading back to Colorado for our Spring 5K and Resurrection Sunday. I have now been working with His Little Feet for seven months - it's pretty amazing how much has changed and how fast the time has gone!

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God....Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another....if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us...So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him...There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear." - 1 john 4
