Mourning Into Dancing

What a year it has been.

Just a little over 11 months ago, Caroline and I found out that she had suffered a miscarriage. It was a horribly dark time for us, and it was hard to imagine that things could ever get any better.

And then, just last week, we had the privilege of bringing home our beautiful daughter, Kinsley Abigail.

I am reminded of the words of Psalm 30.11-12:

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever!

Beautiful words that ring so true for me today. God is good!


  1. “1 Praise the LORD.
    Praise the LORD from the heavens,
    praise him in the heights above.
    2 Praise him, all his angels,
    praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
    3 Praise him, sun and moon,
    praise him, all you shining stars…”

    Psalm 148

    We are so thrilled for you! We will continue to pray for your family.

  2. That is a beautiful girl you have there. You two are going to be amazing parents. Congrats!

  3. Justin,

    Thanks for the continued prayers! I owe you a phone call…

  4. Towell,

    Thanks man! I’m pretty proud of her. Good to hear from you!
