I have always assumed that there would be one more. That we had one more child coming our way. Always.  Why not? I remember the day that we left the hospital with our 3rd baby and we took the always exciting family photo outside of the hospital before we headed home as a family of… Continue reading →

The idea of a calling

By Sarah Delamarter / March 30, 2017 /

This idea of a calling is a big one. I have this notion that a calling on my life will only be a big one. That if God really has a calling for me its only a ‘real calling’ if its huge. It must be right? If God has come a callin’ its because he…

It’s not practical. It’s God. 

By Sarah Delamarter / February 2, 2017 /

It doesn’t make sense. It is not at all a practical thing to do. This is what I said to myself back in March of 2015. I am not someone who people would readily refer to as practical. I’ve gotten a lot more practical as a mother and since being married to a very practical…
