What is Love?


Tonight, I am feeling quite sentimental. It’s something about having “the best time of my life”…

In my last blog, I told you that we were growing our family by two feet. Those two feet arrived on July 26, 2014 at 1:42 a.m. Jameson Rhett Fisher Teel was 8 pounds and 20 inches long. The last 6 months have flown by and been more than amazing!!! Motherhood has come very natural for me. I feel peaceful, harmonious and a love that has no end. I’ve said to many of you “there is no timing like God’s timing.” Here’s a little history to help explain what I mean… When Matt and I married, we weren’t sure if we every wanted children. For those of you that know me well, you may relate this to the fact that I am the eldest of 6 children; you may not understand because you saw that I helped nurture those younger siblings; or you may understand because who would want to do it again, when you feel like you already helped raise a lot of kids.

It wasn’t until we enjoyed each other as husband and wife, had a lot of ups and downs, and traveled to a lot of places around the world. Finally, we changed our minds.

This is what I meant by “there’s no timing like God’s timing.” I don’t reflect on the past with much regret. It’s a wasteful emotion. Rather, I try to take the good and learn from the bad. Therefore, I can tell you honestly, God waited until the perfect time to give us our blessing He had for us all along. If the timing were anything else, I wouldn’t have the reflection on my life as I do. Today, my life is full of blessings that I adore and acknowledge. My husband,
