It's Been a While......

......Since our last official Family Photo.....almost nine years to be exact.
This family photo was taken one month after we nearly lost Hallie. It has always meant alot to me and has always hung in our front entryway. It is a constant reminder to me of the gifts that God has so richly blessed me with and allowed me to keep. I will forever treasure this portrait as it captures a time in my life that I never want to forget.....
a time of darkness and fear,
a time of completely putting myself at the feet of my Lord and begging Him to heal my baby,
a time of absolute trust in the Lord as He worked in our lives,
a time of actually feeling His arms wrapped around me and my child as she struggled,
and a time of Rejoicing as He has made His presence known in so many special ways.

This portrait will always be our "first Family photo" and will always hang in our home, but over the years.... WOW! how we have changed and when a very special lady who went through her very own struggles of nearly losing a child, announced she was visiting Texas to do photoshoots...I knew it was time.
I can not wait to meet MckMama in person in the morning and have her share her incredible talent with my family!
