Miracles are Precious

We live in a culture of immediate gratification...

instant coffee,
instagrams,
internet at our finger tips,
texting/email/iphones/twitter...

It's almost become the "norm" or just "expected" that things will happen immediately...if A, then B, then C...bam, bam, bam...

Sometimes I mourn the generations that went long before us that worked long, hard hours with little payback or compensation...and yet they were determined and never once, accepted a handout or gave up...

However, I've grown used to the "ease"...

As mom, I often wonder how this culture will impact my daughters...because "life" doesn't always work "exactly as we plan"...and what are we to do when what we planned for, imagined, dreamed about...doesn't come to fruition in the way we want...

and then I met this family...


I first met them when I photographed their wedding... and though it was a most meaningful and grand affair...it was also a time where dear family members had Heaven on the horizon, and some had already finished their earthly journeys...where the cloud of cancer hung over sweet sisters & aunts bravely facing the future...

They committed themselves to each other on that day, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health...till death do you part...

and they meant it...

We are never promised an easy road (although I so wish that were the case sometimes)

And yet, I'm starting to sense that perhaps, it is through some of those hardships that love is strengthened, that commitment & integrity are bolstered, that compassion & gentleness are multiplied...

It was in their case...

They waited a long time...through yet another painful journey, for their little man...

And as I spent time with them...I heard the gentleness of voice, the reassurance of love, the 
re-pledging of forever, and the togetherness of teamwork...

I'm showcasing their pictures in black and white because there is such a "story" behind the images...and I don't want it to be missed...

Congratulations to this new mommy & daddy...I have no doubt that they will be LIVING a legacy for their son...one wrapped in honor, character, perseverance and LOTS of LOVE!
