Moments...


Occasionally in life, we are blessed to witness moments...

Moments lives irrevocably change...


Moments you can almost hear a heart's seams rip as it swells with an exquisite, indescribable, unequivocal tenderness and... your own heart rips a little more with that same sweet tenderness...


Moments you witness a love born that will place another's needs above your own... a love that will press on in times of exhaustion, frustration, hurt and sometimes hopelessness... A love that will endure and grow and carve your soul into the one God intended...

A love that will give you more joy... and grace... and moments of pure delight than you ever knew existed... and, yes, more heartaches and worry and concern.  A love that will stretch and challenge and fulfill you beyond your wildest imaginings. 
A love that finally illuminates a pale understanding of God's love for us.


A moment of knowing your child owns that kind of love.


August 31, 2012 we welcomed our newest grandchild... She is an angel, just like all the rest... More precious than I could ever have words to express. 


My heart is full...


Blessings to all ~ tanna

Oh, Tanna, those are wonderful pictures! Is she wearing a cammo hat with a big flower on it? Looked sort of like cammo in one of the pictures....how funny if that is true.

Does she live closer to you than the little men?
Happy for your happiness!

Tricia @ Saving room for dessert said...

Oh my goodness Tanna! Congratulations! It is ridiculous how much I've missed you. Welcome back. I guess you had good reason to take a little break. She is absolutely beautiful. Your son looks so happy and proud. What a wonderful blessing to you all. Seriously though, you had me worried! I thought maybe you got sequestered in some high profile trial and were locked up for months! So happy to hear from you again - you were sadly missed :)
