When colors fade

I  love how Macy caught these sweeties on the camera.  When we brought Ivy home, one concern we had was how she would treat her younger nieces who are close to her own age. We obviously didn't know what training and experiences she had in the orphanage. It has been a joy to see how Ivy has loved and adored the little ones from the beginning. She intuitively knew how to be gentle and sweet with them, and she lights up when they are around.

These two were born an ocean apart.

 One with Ebony eyes...The other Icy-blue

One spirited and sprightly.
One calm and calculated

So different.
So much the same.

Both love a pretty dress.
Both love to sing a song of praise.
Both love bubbles and play dough.
Both love to laugh and cuddle.

Our creative God lovingly planned for them to be in the same family.
Woven miraculously together by His great providence.

From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another.
John 1:16
