A Bit of Heaven Before My Eyes

You step
You gaze
You wonder
I stop
I gaze

I wonder....
about the amazing creation of God's work

so proud I have been entrusted to be your mother


Linking up today with these great ladies
Give me your best shot at Better in BulkPhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and Lolli



P.S. Thanks for all of your concern about Lucas and the lunch fiasco. Today he is attempting to buy a lunch again for the first time since the failed attempt on Monday-not because of what happened- but because he hasn't liked what they are serving again until today. So keeping my fingers crossed for him.

  10. What amazing shots! I adore them! I too often sit back and stare at my little ones with amazement. How is it that i deserve these amazing gifts? I don't really, luckily God gives such grace! Beautiful post!

    I just read about his lunch fiasco :-( He has such a tender heart and it just makes mine break when I read how he handles these things. I mean Alex would have gone straight to the teacher and said "Ummm I need a lunch. This is my money and I am hungry!" Funny how different two kids can be. I hope today was much much better! I am sure it was!

  15. What a beautiful moment you captured! Frame-worthy for sure.

    How'd the lunch line go? I know, I am so nosey and asking way to much. Sorry.

  16. Absolutely precious. :) I am always amazed by how fast they grow. Cameras are seriously the best invention ever.

  17. Double, triple, quadruple awesome! It made me remember sitting by a window with Ryder's dad when he was one. I can see, feel, and remember that day inside my head so clearly.

    Beautiful photos!

  23. I love these pics! I'm not much of a photographer. I let my daughter do that part for me. I wish I could see the beauty of the idea before I snap the pic.

  24. I missed this one when it was first posted but glad to see it now because it is truly beautiful - both the pictures and the way you worded it - so true!!

  25. He is adorable. And walking?! Really? Wow. I guess he is old enough, it just seems odd. And by the way, we buy the same diapers. That always makes me laugh. :)
