What Love Looks Like

My heart is full. There are no words today. Only tears of joy and my camera in hand to capture these first precious moments. Unspeakable joy. Gratitude that I have never felt before. I am  humbled and broken and filled in very special ways. Thank you Father for the five gifts I call my children. Thank you for trusting me Lord. Thank you for showing me what love looks like. Thank you for showing me that love can be seen. It is soft and gentle and delicate and fresh and tiny and new and very, very beautiful. My cup runneth over Lord.

I am tearing up as I'm reading this. Your words are so beautiful and expressive.

I love the picture of big sister holding her new brother. So sweet and timeless.

Nothing like that tender, real, child love. Bella Grace looks just beautiful holding that bouncing baby boy with a head full of beautiful hair! Love to all.
