Little people of mine

These little faces_ smile at me

These little hands_  help me

These little feet_ follow behind me
These little mouths_ speak to me. 























And when I hear them say "mom, do you know you're the best mom ever?"
Or "mom, do you want me to pray for you" because I have a headache.
Or "mom, you look hot" because they've heard their dad say that. :)
I am encouraged
Out of the mouths of babes..they speak... and I listen.


Until last year, we had never had the opportunity to have "natural" family pictures taken. 
We had done the department store thing & so many others. But I mean, we had never had them taken by a "real photographer...like, not staged.  And let me just say, it has been the most well spent money ever...ever! I have these pictures plastered all over our house in frames_ canvases_ and I never seem to tire of looking at them.  

These little people of mine well, they inspire me.... and sometimes I find 
the biggest encouragement comes through the littlest of voices.


Linking up with Jami for "We encourage" Tuesday's....

  18. these are fantastic photos. I like the linking up idea to. It's so good to remind ourselves, and others, of the great things that God does for us through even the smallest things (or even the most obvious). He is so good.
