I KNOW IT'S NOT WINTER, BUT...
These pictures were taken of my hubby and grandson by a local newspaper photographer this past winter, and he finally got around to emailing them to Cecil. They were sledding at the park when the photographer came along, and I think the pics truly capture the essence of love and trust. In fact, these are my husband's words about the photos after he studied them for a time:
"These photos remind me of how God views us. His arms are open wide to us waiting for our approach even as He approaches us. Initially, we stand back and wait (Picture #1). When we see we can trust Him, we begin to take baby steps toward him (Picture #2). At last, we find it in our hearts to trust completely, and we fall freely into His arms in a full-out embrace (Picture 3).
The love and comfort we feel when we are close to God is indescribable. That’s how it is when I'm with my grandkids, and those pictures sum it up perfectly."
