Photography – Feeling BIG FAMILY LOVE on Valentine’s Day

(Inside: Photography on Valentine’s Day is fun. I love these beautiful photos I took of my kids on Valentine’s Day.)

Someday other women will hold these boys’ hearts, but today… I get to be their valentine.
(Warning…over-the-top sappy words following.
Sometimes I just get like that. Thank you for liking me anyway.)

Sweet sons, you remind me how very blessed I am.

You each are a miracle and a gift.

When I look at you, I remember how big God is.

Without even knowing it, you help me look up.

Watching you, just seeing you every day, remind me of some truths. 

God intentionally creates each human being with such beauty and uniqueness. My heart knows that God can do big things in and through your lives. God can use your gifts and talents to point others to Him. So I’m reminded that he also gives me gifts and prepares places for me to use them on this earth (something that’s important to me).

God loves us more than we can ever understand. You boys and your dad surround me with your love and through it, I feel God’s love. You help me better understand “how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” (Ephesians 3: 18).

My dear sons.

I cherish you and am grateful for you.

I hope everyone has a beautiful day filled with love.  Happy Valentines Day.
