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

Father’s love

Father's love

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.

{Matthew 18:3}

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.

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.
