Six months ago, a little girl named Selena (Sally to her granddaddy and me) joined our lives. And in those few short months she has completely stolen our hearts.
I don’t think that I knew how instantly my heart could become totally wrapped around one person. From the moment I laid eyes on her sweet face on August 1st, 2011, the amount of love I felt for her seemed almost unreal.
Oh sweet Sally.
One day I hope she knows and understands how she has been prayed over and how much we love her. Since before she was born I have prayed over her the same words I heard my dad pray seven times for months at a time; “Father, give this baby a sweet spirit and grow her to love you with all her heart, mind, soul, and strength.” And I know the Lord has heard my prayer every time I hear her sweet giggles. As we sat in church this morning with Sally sleeping in my arms, I prayed again that she would never know a day without Jesus and that her relationship would be a real and authentic one.
On Saturday morning we had a little brunch with Randy’s sisters and youngest niece. I loved watching Sally’s great-aunts and cousin doted on her and played with her. Randy and I were so excited to be able to start another tradition with our sweet girl.
Big love can come in the tiniest forms.
