"Don’t equate the presence of God with a good mood or a pleasant temperament. God is near whether you are happy or not."

Where did you come from little one?
It’s taken me a long time to adjust to our new reality; (I don’t recommend uprooting your entire life and moving states when pregnant). But faith, hope and love are the three that always remain so I am sticking one foot in front of the other, and thanking God for another day in our little village of messy love and crazy work … And of course this sweet, sweet face.
Reminds me of my mother and watching her “put on lips” at a very young age. I like what she taught us about beauty and embracing our femininity, but knowing no amount of makeup can affect a heart that’s ugly or loving toward others.
