because a picture is worth a thousand words

I don't have time to share many words. But I can share some pictures.

I finally have an updated picture up there in my blog banner. Guess the name "honey BUNCHES of Lotz" is living true to its word around here. (There were ZERO children involved when I named my blog way back when.)

When I changed the landscape picture of my Facebook page a few days ago, I intentionally sat and watched as the chairs in our "before" picture were magically filled. If only it were that easy in reality. Nonetheless, it was so fun to watch those chairs fill up right in front of my eyes.

We went from this:


To this: 



God has dealt graciously with us. He has lavished his love on us. He has filled our chairs and our hearts. We are so grateful and in awe of his great plans that we will never fully understand.

So where have we been the last few months? Busy. Very busy. But I've also emerged from the dark thunderous clouds of feeling overwhelmed, clouds that partially caused me to withdraw from friends and jump into survival mode. I hope to be back later to share more, but I could not go a day longer without sharing this amazing image of God's goodness.

(Both images from the amazing Ziegler Photography.)
