Little lights of mine
Here is Julian playing with Luke. I love this picture because it is just the best of childhood... you know you are running not from something or toward anything but just because you are so darn happy you don't know what else to do with yourself. This is how Traci (Luke's mom) and I played together... we have known each other since birth..what a gift to almost watch ourselves from a distance.
Then of course Julian didn't think I was feeding his darling brother enough so he felt so sorry for him he offered him all of the toilet paper... and Coopy being the angel he is would never refuse.
Here is my sweet sweet soul of a boy. I needed to know if he could wear his brother's baptismal outfit because I mean what is the point of buying another for that one time wear sort of thing. He will be baptized Sept 8th. It is a beautiful moment in which his father and I pledge to do everything in our power to teach him the ways of God...but oh how this child whose spirit is so gentle with eyes that light up the room is already teaching me.
I am a woman shamelessly dependent on a Savior. I am constantly being shaped and molded, bending and moving in ways I never thought possible. I am married to the most incredible Australian man, the accent of which is only the beginning of his sublimeness. He is a rock that God has so graciously allowed me to walk alongside. I have four beautiful children who teach me more than I could ever teach them. This blog is really about sharing life with others and hoping to provide even the slightest bit of wind at their backs at just the right moment. I have a soft spot for nutella and peanut butter on a spoon together, like dogs that smell good but not cats, force myself to join clubs to be more relationally oriented, and at least once a week dance so long in my living room that sweat drips in my eyes.
