This beautiful girl has been asking me to take photos of her for a week. I REALLY needed to run a few errands, but I just couldn’t say no. I’m so glad we had time for a few pics, because we desperately needed a little time just me and her.
Sunday we had an incident where I came unglued on her. She disobeyed, which resulted in hurting her baby brother (he’s fine!). I know she loves him to death, and would never do anything to hurt him purposely. She felt horrible and I felt horrible. She is SO much like me, and I get easily frustrated with her. I went to bed that night, just thinking I’m going to just RUIN her. I was so discouraged.
These photos were taken on Monday night, and as I stood there watching her I thought about GRACE. I’m going to make mistakes….but those mistakes are forgiven. I watched her dancing, singing and laughing through that field and it filled my heart with joy. She’s not ruined. I love this sweet girl SO much, and I need to work on giving her grace and showing her patience and love instead of frustration. I need to show her Christ.
God has given me such a sweet gift in her. She always thinks about other people before herself, and she has such a sweet and tender heart. I’m so thankful for all that He is teaching me through this sweet little girl. He is showing me a lot of areas in my life that need to change.
We left looking at this beautiful sunset. Another reminder of God’s goodness.
