And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9

My Favorite Kind Of Picture....... when they don't know that you're taking their picture.

Lauren was being a little too that is not always a good thing. So I went to go check on her. And here she sat, looking out the window.

I quietly grabbed my camera, (as I always have it handy on my bookshelf.) And I just started shooting. At first she didn't notice me, and these are the shots I got.

It was really sweet to see her being still...being peaceful...being beautiful. It reminded me that I need to be still sometimes. 

My days seem to literally fly by.....but I know that God wants my heart focused on Him.....He wants me to be still and know Him, to grow in my faith and knowledge of Him.

All the other aspects of my life will be in their right place only when my heart is right with God.

My 2yr. old lovie reminded me of this....and now I try to take that time and be still, to breath, making it a priority to meet with God by reading His Word every day and through spending time in prayer. 

My lovies are always teaching me something. Usually they help me to see where I can be more patient, more loving and more self sacrificing. It's not ever easy to see our sin....but I know that through this journey God is helping me to peel the sinful layers from me and changing me....little by little. 

I am saved by His amazing grace....nothing can I do apart from Him. Praise God!

Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth!"
