Simply remembering moments...

I remember when she held her sister and would just stare with love abounding.
I remember that purple, cotton dress and the multi-coloured scrunchie in her hair that matches a gymnastics suit Sara wears to her class now!
I remember the feel of the velvety soft blanket Katie was wrapped in that day.
I remember the smooth, tender skin when I kissed her cheek..
I just remember and am thankful.

Oh, and I remember Spring, somehow I do!

              I remember to stand strong when I feel weak.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me...I can do all things IN Christ!

When I hold Sam, I remember when I gave her twin baby dolls and she naturally held and hugged them both and cared for them as I see her caring now for her sisters.
Today I remember moments and I am just thankful.

One year ago (almost) we found a precious place filled with smiles and glorious songs radiating from beautiful children.
A place called paradise to visitors perhaps but to these ones, precious ones, it is home but with many trials and perhaps lost hope.

We were able to stand with them and in a small way, serve them.

You know me, the weeper...I could hardly take it all in....

I wanted to hold them all and tell them they are so beautiful and loved by a God that created them...
Even though is was simple, it brought big smiles and changed hearts, changed mine.
Soon we will visit them again! I can't wait! God use us...

To have and to hold

 His precious daughter at his side, a flurry of emotion

Curls and bobby pins, hair spray and careful attention to detail, all for the celebration of love!

The lace adorned with detail that lined her veil and her dress, all intentionally chosen to wow the groom
petals tossed with grace and sweet smirk from our very own flower girl - Sara Glo

 Those in attendance yet again have to privilege of witnessing a union blessed by God, a covenant before man and God all to His glory

The commitment to love and adore as long as they both shall live

The moment they had been waiting for, man and wife for the firs time.
You know what I love? That the entire ceremony pointed to the one who created them, who gave them one another, the God who sent his son for us!
To you Marjolaine and Sope, we love you and celebrate this new adventure in your lives.
You are dear to us
