about :: me

i never know what to write on these pages. i'm not the type to write the laundry list of name and and likes and dislikes, because i always feel so arrogant and so small when i write those things.

in fact, i never have written one of those posts. at first, it didn't feel right to me to talk about myself or share random scraps of this and that.

even this...it's just crumbs on the plate that is me.

this is one of those times when i wish i could open my soul's door to you -- just to let you peak inside and get a glimpse at this watercolour wallpaper which paints a picture of the real Rachel.

i'm in love. twenty-one and passionately in love. 

i'm in love with my Jesus. we're walking together now, Him and i. it's a step by step, fall and carry. but i trust Him. and so we're moving this path together. 

i'm wed to my soulmate, Jonathon, since 2009. there's nothing that could have prepared me for this. this thing of being in love with the one man for which you were destined. 

and when two people fall in love 
sometimes that love spills over and makes something beautiful.

in 2012, i chose a word to represent my year. no resolutions, only one word. in the night, He whispered the word to me: brave

and twelve days later -- on January 12th, 2012, on bended knee in the barren stall of a Wal-Mart bathroom -- i learned why. two dark purple lines formed a the smallest cross, and my life began to change forever.

we are expecting our first small blessing in September of this year. the days are ticking by, and i'm learning this new phase of mother even while still swelling and growing with the tiny one growing between bone and flesh.

and this is my place to share this new corner of my heart, this new journey with the world. i'm entering into this new territory of a mommy blog and a Jesus blog, all in one.

so welcome to this place, and i cannot wait to get to know each and every one of you.
