Once Upon a Time...

It's hard to imagine that this still,
little baby, once upon a time looked like....

this, so small and new (three days old)!

This picture and hundreds just like it brings to mind so many memories of Caroline as an itty bitty baby. It also brings back excitment, joy, worries and fears (I still have worries and fears). As soon as she was born I felt blessed beyond measure. We were chosen to be her parents. We were chosen to tell her about Jesus and how much He loves her and how to follow and trust Him all the days of her life. We were chosen to show and tell her that putting others above self is one of life's greatest fulfillments (I already have a service project planned out for us when she's older)! I know it sounds crazy!
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about how much of a gift we've been given and I even try to think how I could thank God even more for her! I pray each day that He will supply us with all that we need so that we can be what He needs us to be for her! Blessed. We are truly blessed!
