Bridesmaids & Babies

Photo by Patricia Lyons

The ladies you see here were my beautiful bridesmaids, and in the past month or so, 30% have given birth to three beautiful little babies.  Together, these little mamas now have a total of 6 amazing children!  Thanks be to God! 

We have Jonah Capps:

Mary Tobin Ortega

And little Emma Rathbone

It is a joy to watch these dear friends expand their families and evolve from faithful and loving daughters, friends, and wives into fabulous moms!

So with one day to go until Thanksgiving, today, I’m grateful for the gift of life.  And I’m grateful that as teeny tiny as these little babies are, before they even entered the world, they were perfectly, wholly and so dearly loved.

The good news for us is that God doesn’t just go for soft, innocent, snuggley babies, but He loves us that much too!  Even the tired, worn down, broken and weary.  From the day we were born, our God has been crazy about us!   

“I’ve never quit loving you and never will.
   Expect love, love, and more love!”
Jeremiah 31:3 (MSG)
“Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life.”  
Psalm 23:6 (The Message)
