I always get very connected with my Maker when I visit the sea. I am aware of His presence and His glory, but sometimes I guess it helps to get away from the every day and experience Him in new surroundings. When I am the only one awake and I can hear the rushing waves and feel the salty air and there... far off in the east I see that light, rising up... It gives me glory bumps, I'm telling ya. I realize just how BIG this God of ours really is. He's so much bigger than any of our issues. So much greater than any of our fears. So much more than any of our lacking... I am in awe of Him.
Thank you, Jesus for allowing me to go to the ocean and have my heart stirred and refreshed once again.
My heart is full to bursting this morning as I realize my baby is not a baby anymore...
My beautiful girl not only turns 18 today, but she also is officially graduated.
Oh my heart.
God in His infinite wisdom gave me this wonderful, beautiful, precious flower to love and care for. To teach, train, nurture and grow... And here she is at 18 years.
I love you so much, Cameo. I could NOT be any more proud of you.
You are one of the kindest souls.
You are very much like your Daddy, quick to see the good in people.
You have good instincts.
People are drawn to you. You have a joy for life, I like to think you got that from me. ;)
You're a hard, diligent worker.
You are smart... You think through problems and can figure out good solutions.
Don't worry about hating math. ;)
You are funny. You make me laugh... all. the. time.
You're adventurous. Always eager to give something a shot. (Another Moma trait, ha ha)
You are a shining light for the Lord. Lead by example, my love. There is a world needing to see your light for Him!
You're smile brightens any room. It has since you were a baby.
Cameo, I love you so, so much. I think you are one of the most wonderful young women I've ever had the privilege of knowing and I am SO incredibly blessed to be your Moma. To be able to watch you grow all these years and to see where you go from here.
