The Bravest Man I Know



Guest Post, written by my husband. . . thanks, Babe!

Every now and then, we get caught off guard by inexplicable emotions. A deep feeling that is much more than joy or sadness – it’s a bit of each, actually. A feeling that has a sense of urgency, though you feel no rush. A feeling of restlessness and longing, but also a sense of peace, too. This is the feeling that’s been sitting deep within me for the past several days – because my hero is leaving.

My hero is the bravest man I know. He’s funny, charismatic, has a million-dollar smile. Every time you say good-bye after having spent time with him, you’ve left him a better person than when you came. Nobody loves their wife or children more than him. He’s moral, full of integrity, and and just plain all-around-cool. The true irony of Cpt. Tim Crawley, Battalion Chaplain in the US Army, is this: he’s not allowed to carry a weapon, but his hands are registered as weapons . . . yeah, he’s a third degree black belt.

About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!
