Gazing at these pictures, I had an epiphany.
I eyed a daughter who suddenly noticed she was being watched. When that realization set in, she sprinted passionately to the one she loved.
Yet I also saw myself, and how I desire to run the race.
This race called LIFE!
So often I get sidetracked from what is truly important.
Good things, honorable things, but just not the best things for this season of life.
typo in the title…Abandon
Just looking at that sweet face and pure joy… Makes me want the unadulterated faith of a child.
Love this….thanks for sharing…was exactly what I needed and I think many of my friends will need to read as well…so I posted a link to it on facebook
Very well said but the title needs a B instead of D 🙂

: ) Amen! Grateful He never stops wooing me and healing me so I can grasp further how wide and long and high and deep His love for me is.

Gorgeous photos — the joy on her face!
we are called to come just as we are
before the Throne
not who we were
not who we will be
but just as we are.
Wherever we may be in the sometimes ‘messy’ state of life
God sees the end and
He loves us as we are.
Not because of whatever we may do
but because of His Son, Jesus Christ.
May we care for one another with
the same ‘wreckless abandon love’ with which
He has first loved us.
I enjoyed reading this post, it was so “alive” and real. Almost, as if I too was there with you.I embrace the words shared in the script (for me it’s like a poem).
Wonderful, keep on doing what you’re doing to bless lives everywhere.
What a beautiful post! I agree with the previous commenter that you made it seem so alive and real. I thank Jesus for being there for me anytime!
