  1. That’s the best part of having kids… they kind of “bring you back” to what’s important when you’re having “a moment”. Such a sweetheart you have. May she continue to see Jesus’ beauty forever. Thanks for this! 🙂

  2. Great job, Mom! He is sufficient for us as moms even when we have nothing of ourselves to give. In fact, my children are better off when I am at the end of self and all I have is Him!

  3. Such a pure and heartwarming post! Yes, Jesus is beautiful, as is Eden! I’m sure you see Him in her eyes as they shine so brightly. And thank you for a glimpse into your beautiful soul. I’m sorry about your dad (in understand your pain)…may you feel a special touch of comfort from the holy spirit today! Blessings to you and your precious family!

  4. This is good. And so timely for me.

    My husband and I just listened to a sermon about how beautiful Jesus is. Before listening, I had never really thought about it before. And how cool for you to mention it here, as well!

    I love this line:
    “Sometimes, when you look into His eyes, in your mind …you feel like you could for hours. He’s so safe and so full of life and so loving. God made Jesus’ beauty to be almost overwhelming.”


    May you be blessed in 2011! Thanks for this post 🙂

  5. Hi Sara. I linked over from your blog. So glad I did. I think sometimes you are a spiritual sister of sorts to me. I too lost my Dad and have suffered through infertility as well. This year makes 14 long years ago. He was my everything and losing him shook my whole world. Nothing was as it was before after he was gone. It has taken many years to really work through it and his birhtday is so tough for me still. It was his special day after all and we celebrated it in high fashion every year. Not to sound like a cliche’ but time and God’s grace does heal your heart…some at least.

    So thankful that He gave you your Princess to bring you back to the reality that no matter where you are in life He is still beautiful. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to reading your next post.
