I am not quite sure what everyone else has been up to during this quarantine for fun. I have recently been going over old photos and old writings. I had the notion that since some of you I have never met before, these old pictures from when my family was younger might give a peek into our past.
Oh my word is this picture old. We were just babies. I was in my early twenties not having any clue what direction the Lord had planned for me. I was so slender!!
My fierce warrior son!! This is maybe 10 years ago with his friend Austin. Love the crazy armor they created to battle evil together.
Love this picture!! Here is my great grandma’s namesake, my oldest daughter just looking cute. She was maybe 14 and is probably mad as heck at me right now for posting this!! LOL!!
Here are my two youngest beauties 10 years ago just silly little giggle monsters!! I swear they are still the same!! Always having fun together, these two sisters make me happy to just hear them teasing and bubbling with joy.
Don’t you love going through memories, happy memories with your loved ones? It is one of my favorite things to do with my kiddos. We grab the old photo albums and cuddle up on the couch, fireplace roaring and cocoa steaming in our mugs. The silly stories start spilling out. Loud belly laughing begins echoing off the living room walls. Before you know it we have snacks out, our sides are sore and mascara is smeared from happy tears of laughter. It is always a good heartwarming adventure.
I know sometimes its fun to see pictures from our past, to see a glimpse of how much we have grown. I am floored to see how much we all have changed, how the Lord has refined our walk. We have walked through fire, alone and as a family, yet He has been there with us through it all. I know in the next ten years, He is going to shape and mold us even more. I pray we will continue to grow closer to Him as we choose to seek Him in our battles. Our victory is in Him.
