My Mirror Image

she does not have my eyes, or my skin or my hair, but oh does she have my heart.

doing things just like this. trying to be "like" me.

climbing up on the counter, using my make up brush, my eye makeup, and applying it just like me.

how humbling and so sweet that this little heaven sent child sees something in me she chooses to mimic.

I pray everyday, my love for the Lord shines thru enough that one day she will choose to mirror it, and outshine it and dance in it, and rejoice with it.

thank you Jesus for this precious little me.

Ava & Lily

I am blessed to watch the love of my children be shared with their siblings.

each one adores ava in their own way, but these sisters, well, that's something special, divine and such a treasure to watch.

I thank God every day i am here to be witness to it.

Our first trip to the orchard
with our sweet Ava

 She was enchanted - we tasted and picked and enjoyed a marvelous day.

How gracious God is in all His creation

Sometimes you have the cellphone camera right when cuteness happens.......
             Ava has been intrigued by Lily and I crossing our legs.

 She sat down, determined to teach her doll and herself!

 Dolly did beautiful... so did Ava, Chub and all!
Gotta love it!

balloons, parades, cook outs, ice cream, and children, sweet children. how very blessed we are to have them to lend us their eyes with which we can see the world as the Father intended us to...
