A Colorful Bunch

This week we were awesomely uncoordinated (color-wise) for our weekly photo. Check out that neon orange! The kid likes to make a statement. This is what happens when I stick to the ‘come as you are’ policy on this project. The control-freak part of me cringes a little, but there is something silly and sentimental about it everyone in their self-chosen outfits.

The weekend weather was nothing short of glorious, and we went right out in it at the worst hour of the day (for lovely photography light, I mean) to soak in the sun. I seriously needed those rays. Life is so good, but the honest truth is it is often really challenging as well.  For me, having the sun out is like a big warm hug–it makes all the hard stuff seem insignificant, if even for just an afternoon. And of course it helped to be surrounded by boundless joy and energy….outside and away from our house in the wide open world. Love my colorful crew, but too many hours inside and they wear on me. So, I send out a little prayer for spring: More sun please!

“For You have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. From birth I have relied on You; You brought me forth from my mother’s womb. I will ever praise You.” Psalm 71:5-6
