A moment that I wish would stand still

God is working daily on my heart. He reveals his goodness to me daily and shows me how great life really is even in our not so "beautiful" of times. Landon took a picture of the boys and me all snuggled up in a chair last night. We were talking and doing some late night snuggling. Oh how I wish time would have stopped in that very moment and I could record Grae's adorable voice and Will's sweet cooing. In that moment God showed me what a gift it really is to be a mom. I looked awful just getting out of the bath and yet my kids couldn't get enough of me. I just sat still and soaked them in. It made me wonder if that is one of God's favorite moments with me. When I can just sit and soak Him in and He can do the same with me? I went back and forth as to whether I would post this lovely picture of myself when I realized the memory of those few moments far out weighed whether I had make-up on or not. My boys love me just as I am. How blessed I am.

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15

How precious! Even without the caption, that picture speaks volumes. God knew what he was doing when he gave us our sweet kids!

You are just as beautiful here as you are any other time. What could be better?
