My baby leaves for Colombia tomorrow! It's actually hard to imagine how life is going to be without her home. Yikes, I love that girl!!


She's pretty amazing, and has never really belonged to me, I think the sooner you realize this about your kids, the better, she's a gift from God. A lot of people can't believe I'm letting her go. She wasn't mine to keep, and that's the truth.


I love...


...That she loves Jesus!

...That she lives for Him!

...That she's not afraid to be who she is!

...That she's not afraid
...That she's silly
...her smile

...her laugh

...when she wrinkles her nose

...how she eats her Panera

...that she's so creative

...that she works hard

...that she's gonna miss her mommy :)

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Romans 10: 14-15

"for everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. How then can they call on the One they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the One in whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, 'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News'" Romans 10: 13-15!

As a Mom, you've been doing it right!

Hugs,
Connie

Do you know what's crazy? I had decided to come back to your Bible Verse after my comment!!!! I went back and you had posted the same verse that the Holy Spirit had laid on my heart!
