these are my friends, justin and kayla and their sweet children. i adore them. they're so dear to me. almost two-months-ago they lost their infant son, zimeon. and since then, justin and kayla have stepped out in faith to show everyone what loss with jesus looks like. i am amazed by their continued strength and endurance through this hardship. their honesty and vulnerability has been so eye opening for me because i don't think i could live as openly as they are. i am excited to continue to watch what jesus does from the dust of zimeon's death. he makes all things new and i believe he is creating something new in and for justin and kayla. if you think of our dear friends, please lift them up in prayer as they navigate their grief in this season.
