{ digesting }





Reading in James this morning. And these words reached off the page and grabbed me as I prayed that they would become the heartbeat of my day to day life:

Count it all joy.

Count it all joy.

Count it all joy.

Count it all joy.



And then there is my sweet little grinning baby boy,
who of course I " count" and recount as one of my greatest forever joys.
I swear this grin of his is unstoppable...
and I can't stop taking picture of his dear little full of light, precious smiling face.

Jack is the sweetest little lad!! Already so big!!! He looks somewhat like Annabelle...

Loves and Joy to you sweet friend

I, too, love the book of James. That boy, Jack, is a winner (as in, "ding, ding we have a winner"), a winning smile for certain! And don't you think his winning personality is leaking out all over? Too cute!

Thanks for sharing that tidbit of truth...good reminder and I think I'll read in James today. Love the little photo of the little man! So impressed with that neck control - what a big boy!

Oh, I am pretty darn sure that when you get settled in that big, beautiful house of yours that you will have a sewing area that I will be jealous of!

Such a great reminder! I really needed that this week. And your sweet email the other day made my day! I miss you so much and can't wait to have you close all the time. It is going to be the best! And Mr. Jack, I am in love with you! :)

O, goodness. Just when I think I'll be ok if I never have children, his darling face lights up the page. {And Chelle, one thing as well, your family chooses to count. Everything. Every moment. What a wise woman you are. ;))

Chantel Monet said...

Oh Chelle, he is so precious! I am living vicariously through you right now! He seems so full of love. What an amazing gift! Your life is so full of joy because you are wise enough to look for it in every corner. I've learned so much from you!

I couldn't remember if I commented on this yet. Sometimes I go away to think about it and forget to come back and tell you I was! This one I did that. I was thinking about it a lot. Thank you! xo
