Once upon a time there were 3 little cousins. A chocolate, a vanilla, and a strawberry.
And even though their mamas were sisters and best of friends-the boys didn’t really look alike. Except for their blue eyes-but those didn’t come from mama’s side of the family.
They loved going over the river and through the woods to visit Grandfather and Grammy.
Grandfather had the wildest games he’d play-like “man over the moon”-which was kinda scary until you were big enough to at least hold your head. But so much fun after you figured out that you’d actually survive.
But then something changed from just all being fun and games. (Isaiah isn’t too sure what to think about it)
The reality is life is full of change-but this one is gonna take some getting used to. (Uriah looks on in disbelief)
Sweet Baby A- all confidently optimistic… God asked his fam to move away for a season, to share His love with another community… and they are going.
So we are soaking up all the hugs we can for a few days yet. 🥰
“Close together or far apart, you’re forever in my heart.”
Go with God-Nate, Deb, and my little Zanderman ❤️
I love you,
All of the pics from this post are by the talented Molly Suzanne. I’d bought a half hour photography session at a benefit auction and we had in mind a grandparent photo shoot before Alexander moved away. She did such a great job and captured everyone with ease (we even had extra time for pics with the ground crew-Deb and I) totally recommend.
I’m not sure how long God will ask the family to live away, looking after those in prison – but if it stretches into years and Alexander grows into a young man while looking on as his parents serve, I am sure God will use this in his life. One of my favourite musicians (Steve Bell) learned to play guitar from inmates (his father was a prison chaplain) – his music and his heart for the broken are things that have touched many lives… and it all started as he watched his dad serve in prison ministry.
How encouraging! Thanks for sharing ❤️
