Just a Picture

....of an afternoon walk on a lovely day. How I love these three. How they adore each other, the younger admiring the older, the older guiding and protecting and loving the younger. Not so long ago I asked God for at least ten children. I couldn't imagine being happy or feeling fulfilled with any less.

But I saw with my first child, my one, only child was enough to fulfill. Then two....even more wonderful. And now three? These three? It is perfect. It has always been perfect. His will for us. I'm so grateful He didn't let me plan this life...this sublime, even on hard days, life.

Somebody asked me not long ago if it wouldn't be nice to know how your life was going to end up right from the start. Oh, no, I said. I don't think I'd have the courage to face the hard parts if I knew about them in advance. And the good stuff? Knowing would ruin the surprise. :-)
