This is one of my best friends’ babies. In her hands is a custom order from someone who’s friend lost her son to suicide last week. A son who was this age once. A son who was fiercely loved and valued and squeezed tight. A son who will always be their baby. My heart cannot fathom the overwhelming grief. Our only hope? To lift our eyes to the One who is our help in every season and situation. Jesus, come quickly.
It seems the Lord is teaching me a deeper (more experiential) meaning of what Paul talks about when he describes servants of God as “sorrowful, yet always rejoicing” (2 Corinthians 6:10a). • You see, there is so much good happening. So much joy, provision, and depth of community. So many doors opening. So many opportunities to minister and be ministered to. So much love and humility and grace and kindness and care that it has made me—quite literally—cry into a plate of chicken and waffles from the mercy of it all. • These scattered beams can only be explained by the Lord, who is dropping joy bombs and grace explosions all around. • But it’s not all chicken and waffles. • (Link to blog post in profile ❤️)
“All in all, it was a never-to-be forgotten summer—one of those summers which comes seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going—one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends, and delightful doings, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.” -L.M. Montgomery
“[It is] as if [David] had said, Separated from God I am nothing, and all that I attempt to do ends in nothing; but when I come to Him, I find an abundant supply of strength. It is highly necessary for us to consider what we are without God; for no man will cast himself wholly upon God, but he who feels himself in a fainting condition, and who despairs of the sufficiency of his own powers. We will seek nothing from God but what we are conscious of wanting in ourselves. ...the reason why God is represented as a portion is, because He alone is abundantly sufficient for us, and because in Him the perfection of our happiness consists.” -John Calvin, on Psalm 73:26

Buy Canvases, Send Me to Asia

IMG_9645

If you haven’t heard, I’m going to South Asia.

And I know you’re on pins and needles wondering how you can help fund this trip, right? Hahaha. But really, if you would like to support the trip you can do so in a few ways. Financially, through a) making a donation, b) scheduling a photo shoot or c) buying a handlettered canvas.

If you’re interested in the canvases, here is a link to show you some of my work.

Typical sizes and prices are as follows (but there are plenty of other sizes if you’re interested!):

5x7s – $10
8x10s – $15
11x14s – $25
16x20s – $35

You can pay through PayPal or send a check. Email me at sophie[at]realtruthmatters[dot]com if you’re interested in placing a custom order or you want to order something from the pinterest board.

Beyond financial support, we really need your prayers. As I mentioned in the first blog about the trip, we’ve been encouraged by the IMB to have at least 10 partners sending us out through prayer daily while we are in South Asia. With our team of seven, that means at least 70 people would be part of our prayer team. If you choose to partner in prayer, either leave me a comment with your email address or shoot me an email so I can include you on team updates and prayer needs.

Thank you for your love and support and for being obedient to the command our Lord has given to go and make disciples of all nations.
