Baby cousin Breck came to visit Friday, and he could not be any cuter or happier! What a sweet boy he was for us. It’s been a really tough weekend around here for us, and editing this sweet face tonight really makes me grateful for life and family. When we routinely go through our everyday lives, I so easily forget how big, perfect, loving, and truly wonderful our Father in heaven is. I am given so much more than I deserve everyday that i’m breathing. It is impossible to comprehend the greatness of His love, but just like one of my favorite songs by Addison Road…”the slightest glimpse of you brought my down to my knees….” God amazingly shows me His love in others. I think as a woman and a mother I naturally want to do more of the helping than the receiving, and when God graciously gives to me when I least expect it, I really struggle and feel undeserving. So thankful to be shedding lots of tears of thankfulness and not sorrow today. I am overwhelmed by His mercy and grace. We do not deserve it, but He loves us so much he pours it out to us everyday.
So….now that I have completely exposed myself tonight (this is feeling very uncomfortable!!!!) I am going to pull myself together, and good grief, quit crying!!! My poor kids probably think i’m a complete basket case! Well, that’s not that far off most days….. lets just blame it on being a woman.
But really, check out that Addison Road song it’s called “what do I know of holy” it gets me every time.
ok, back to baby Breck…doesn’t he have just the cutest smile??
R & D thanks for coming to see me, and thank you for all your love and help!
