Saying No

Recently, after a church event, my husband and I decided to take a little drive through the city. It was a weekend night, and the streets were filled with couples and groups of people, all dressed up and going out to eat at the cute little restaurants with outdoor seating, fancy menus, and what looks to be great atmosphere. I stared (a little wistfully) out the window of our 13 year old van and wondered aloud, "I wonder what that life is like." My wonderful husband smiled and looked at me and said, "You know, that's the life we said "no" to..."

I looked at him, and then at our three little ones buckled into car seats in the back. And I smiled. Because the life we said "yes" so much better. Thanks for reminding me, God.


  1. I'm glad you said yes to the life you have now. Our lives wouldn't be nearly as rich with you and your amazing family. I love you!

  2. ahhhh! You are so blessed Krissy - and we are so blessed by the example of your family. we love you guys and miss you so very much!!

  3. What a beautiful reminder of what is important and of the blessings we have all been given. Your "yes" reminds me of Mary's "yes," wholehearted and joyful!
