A year ago today I leaned over his hospital bed and said "Bye Grandpa, we're going home." He'd been sleeping, a strange rattle in his shallow breathing.

Honestly, I didn't think he'd wake up.

The cancer in his brain, the blood clot in his leg...it had finally caught up. The "couple weeks" had turned into "any moment." But he stirred, and one last time I saw those pale blue eyes open and look directly at me. And he smiled.

I'll never forget that smile.

The next day, at 2:54 PM, I watched that big man release the final breath that God gave him.

I miss him.

Late night hymn sings, fierce pfeffer competitions, recipe swaps, jokes to make your sides hurt, generosity that'd challenge your giving, and those stories. No one could tell a story like Grandpa.

He was more than just grandpa: He was my and my siblings' dearest friend.

This is my favorite photo of Grandpa and me. Taken weeks before he died, he was telling us about the goodness of the Lord, how blessed he was—and right in the middle of his tears, Grandpa's testimony turned into a spontaneous prayer.

He was a thankful man, changed and awed by the mercies of Jesus.

Today, I'm thankful for the memories of Grandpa, I'm thankful for what God did in and through his life, and I'm so very thankful to KNOW I WILL be seeing him again. "Come home, come home, it's suppertime. The shadows lengthen fast. Come home, come home, it's suppertime. I'm going home at last."

This song, y'all.

Three days before our first Christmas concert, a loved one sent this song to us. Tears streaked our faces as we gathered around and listened close.

The words, the tune: It has a way of getting in your head and into your heart.

We went out on a whim one night and stayed up to 2 AM making this music video—because we're not the only ones hurting this Christmas weekend.

May you find hope and comfort in Jesus this season...in His sweetest Gift.

How pleasant to work from home!

Admittedly, it is difficult to balance work, family, and music—and I fall short of the expectations I hold for myself. My to-do list currently has multiple unchecked items, but tomorrow is a new day, a fresh attempt in God's grace.

Watch LachelnDesigns.com for an upcoming rebrand! Until then, back to work...

Merry Christmas to whoever-is-left-on-Google+!

As I restructure my business and piece together ideas for our family's ministry in 2017, I am reminded that "The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps." (Proverbs 16:9) I am quicker to chart my course and lay out life goals than to stop and seek the Lord's plan.

You know that famous verse, "For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord"? Earlier this month—after a heart-to-heart confab with +Leesha Garms on the road—God impressed it upon my heart, saying: "Taylor, I have a plan for your life. You just have to walk with Me."

It sounds so simple, right? But it is profound, even earth-shattering if you take a moment and consider it: God...has a plan...for my life. Doesn't it make you want to tear up those silly mile-long lists of goals and throw open your arms, saying to the mighty Orchestrator, "Speak, Lord, Your servant listens!"?

As 2017 rapidly approaches, I cling to Psalm 138:8: "The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of Your hands."

I'll say it again: Merry Christmas—and Happy New Year! Go with God.
