The Look of Love

(Photography by: Pita Snaps)

A look. A glance. A shared, yet-simple, dance. The moments with you I treasure. They are graces God sends to inspire. Heaven is not far-off. No, it is here being lived in your love. I give God thanks. I open my soul. I ask Him to shower our marriage with graces of gold. May we always be united in spirit, in prayer, a look, a glance, or a simple dance. You are my channel of grace here on earth.

Precious in His Sight

Yesterday, our three treasures sat on the step near the backyard and gazed upward toward Him. We give you thanks, Lord, for your goodness in sharing these three precious lives with us. We thank you for the individual personalities you have blessed them with. We thank you for their sweet and wondrous ways that are so good, so sweet, so holy. It is no wonder that you say, "Let the children come to Me." (Mt. 19). It reminds me that so many times you see the goodness in each of us that so many times others do not see. And, you see the difficulties too, but you love us nonetheless. For this, I am grateful.

A song we love to sing as a family:

Lord, you are more precious than silver. Lord, you are more costly than gold. Lord, you are more beautiful than diamonds and nothing I desire compares with you. And, nothing I desire compares with you.

Never too Young to Contribute to the Family

Thank you for being selfless, my three little helpers. I love you so much and appreciate your many contributions to our family. What a difference they make.

The great danger for family life, in the midst of any society whose idols are pleasure, comfort and independence, lies in the fact that people close their hearts and become selfish.
Pope John Paul II

The Little Boy Who Could Fly

Little Caleb has been enjoying being tossed into the air in the pool. Mares was able to capture some great photos of our little guy.
