Weekly Image of Life: Children and Their Gifts

Psalm 127:3 (NLT) Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.

A little over 9 months ago, my husband and I were blessed with the greatest gift.  A sweet baby girl who makes us wonder how we ever lived life without her.  She is my personal sunshine and every day she lights up my life.  I want to remember every milestone and capture every moment, while sharing the happiness she brings me with the people I love the most.

This year, the majority of the gifts we gave for Christmas were pictures of our little family, with my darling daughter at the center of it all.  Our hope was that her sparkling eyes and infectious smile would bring warmth into the hearts of all who received one, and as I share these pictures I hope they do the same for all of you!

All photo credit goes to our incredibly talented friend and professional photographer, Squint Foto, and I hope you’ll take a moment to visit his website:  www.squintfoto.com

Blessings to you all!!

Weekly Image of Life: October Magic

Hmmm.  October Magic.  What is October Magic?  This challenge almost had me stumped, because I don’t view this month with any particular enthusiasm.  In fact, I always hoped I could fast forward to November so I could celebrate my favorite national holidays (my birthday and Thanksgiving ), but it hasn’t happened yet! 😉

It’s expected to be about 80 degrees tomorrow, and I’m not being swept away by beautiful fall colors or a distinct change of seasons.  Our visit to the pumpkin farm isn’t until this upcoming weekend, so what’s a girl to do?  Then it came to me.  My incredibly talented friend and brother in the Lord, Squint Foto, recently took some pictures of my little darling and they literally took my breathe away!

The “magic” is in these moments, and comes from the reality of knowing I have a relationship with an extraordinary God!!  He’s blessed me with my family and friends, and saw fit to make me the mom of the most precious angel. These special memories will never be forgotten, and I hope you will embrace the gifts that surround you each and every day!!
