A babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure,
a messenger of peace and love,
a resting place for innocence on earth …
~ Martin Fraquhar Tupper
– my newest nephew at 1 week old; I’m smitten!
Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.
~ James 1:17
This 8 day old newborn is so vulnerable and yet so confident,
ready to take on the world
as he trusts in his Father’s strong hands
and leans into His unquestionable love.
I couldn’t resist sending you all some Joy today!
The new year is here!
I enjoy taking some time to slow down and
prayerfully think, evaluate, plan, strategize,
and set some goals for 2012.
It’s always good to have a game plan.
Keep alive your inner child’s sense of wonder ~
for nothing is too ordinary to be fascinating.
My niece is wildly delighted to hold her 1 month old little brother!
I spent 4 days visiting them and experienced newborn bliss for myself.
Newborns are so tiny and soft and cuddly and perfect and wonderful.
I highly recommend holding one – it’s absolutely therapeutic.
