Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Wonder

Watching her awestruck wonderment over this season, brings so much joy. She senses wonder with her eyes wide open taking in all of His creation. Continuing to count the even the tinist of blessings wakes me up to the all the gifts of love I have received. The wonder of His love created all of this.


"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us." 1 John 4: 9-12




~Time with family
~No plans for the day (how rarely this happens)
~Unexpected warm days
~Her wonderment over Christmas
~Celebration of birth
~Reassurance
~Sound of her words without the front teeth:)
~Cooking with family
~Kneading, rising, and baking bread with Anastacia
~Our nightly routine of reading stories, watching her memorize the words
