Faces

Miss Maddie has been making the funniest faces lately.
Sometimes it is a look of confusion, and sometimes just trying to get a reaction out of us.
Sophie can instigate this face from Maddie.

Every time I look at this face, I can't believe God gave her to me.  A gift that He chose to give us.  A gift that I pray I never take lightly the responsibility that comes with it.  To train her up with discipline, love her with gentleness, and respect who God made her as His daughter.  I was loving on her this morning, and I had this thought:  As good as this feels to hold her cheek to cheek, it is only a fraction of how much God loves us.  He wants to be cheek to cheek with me everyday.

24 " ' "The LORD bless you and keep you; 25 the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; 26 the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace."
Numbers 6:24-26
