My Little Prairie Girl

I did a little photo shoot the other day with Ahava and really felt like I was able to capture some neat shots.  These are my favorites out of many I took that day.  I love my little prairie girl!  I just wish she was smiling in some of them, but she was so mesmerized by everything around her, that I couldn't get her to smile even when I jumped up and down...and that's a lot of work for me to do alone in the Texas heat!!!  But it was worth it!

Happy Fourth of July

Ahava on last July 4th at 2 lbs 6.8 oz
She was very ill this day.  Her blood gas was high,
and she needed more blood (as you can see the
infusion is taking place in this photo).
For what is independence but a mere glimpse of what is to come?

A shadow to the greater gift that reigns from up above

Ahava one year later at nearly 16 lbs!  She has NO
health poroblems!  Praise Jesus!!!!
So as I watch the sparks and glow among the stars so bright

My tiny little prayer is that we would surrender all tonight

For in the mornings quiet lull I've found the greatest most precious prize

The freedom of my Saviors Love and the compassion in His eyes

A Moment

 
 

She sits unaware of what has taken place
So many wonders upon her little face
The world to her is just one big wonder
And that is what I think as I gaze upon her
The ooh’s and ahh’s and smiles of glee
The joy she has for every little thing
The times where I sit and just stare
At the blessing that sits before me there
The proof that God has a plan
And the Glory He has with His hand
How, little one, I’ve known Him so
As I am blessed to watch you grow
