A lesson in love...

This is Gracie and Faith on a recent visit. 

I was sitting at my desk as they played together. When I looked down, I had to grab my camera and capture this unplanned little lesson in love in a photo.

These 2 little girls are only about a year apart in age, and already... they have each other's backs!

Every time we say something about Gracie, she quickly adds... 'and Faithie too'...

I pray that the years will only solidify and strengthen their precious bond. It is so special to have a sister in the first place, and to share a relationship where each affirms the other and stands up for the other is going to be a gift for both of them, all through their lives. 

These little sisters have already won all of our hearts!

Just adorable and should be in a magazine. I always wanted a sister but instead the Lord blessed me with two brothers. What fun these two will have in the years ahead.

LOVE this post!!! I am so glad that I took time to visit this morning. In the middle of all my "the world is too much with us" season, you planted this seed in my heart.

Where there are Christian families, there will always, always, be hope.

Thank you, and without being trite, I'll add: May God bless them.

This melted my heart this morning. I think it would make a perfect poster picture! I can see why you grabbed your camera.

I just love the tenderness of that photo! My sisters and I are spread many years apart, so we didn't have the sort of relationship your granddaughters do. Even so, we have developed tight bonds over the years.
