Treasure the Moment

For anyone who hasn’t yet seen this beautiful reminder, you should take a minute to read it. It brought tears to my eyes – it is so true. I am SO thankful for the things, like Jessica mentioned, that I was able to really enjoy when I was still unmarried in my parents’ home. And now it is applicable to parenthood, too – the moments flee SO quickly. I need to listen – really stop and listen – when my little girl cries out for me. Look her in the face – she simply lights up when I give her my full attention – smile into her deep blue eyes, and tell her I love her. Watch her tiny feet kick when she’s excited, marvel at the completeness and perfection of her chubby hands as her fingers grasp mine. She’s a miracle, she’s a blessing, and she’s growing so fast. I must treasure these moments.

    What you said is so true… I am immensely grateful to the Lord for your example (especially before marriage) of treasuring each moment and loving life where He had you. I think of you often as I endeavor, by His grace, to do the same.
    Miss you so much, dearest, and love you bunches!

    Thank you, sweet sister, for the example you’ve so clearly set for those who are watching you. It is an example worth following, for it is one marked by integrity, contentment, and most importantly, Christ-centeredness. I love watching you in your role of wife and mother. Thank you for letting the Lord lead you and use you to encourage others. I love you so much!
