Over the last year, I have become more deliberate about seeking God’s light in all circumstances. I have seen over and over again that He is waiting to show Himself to us. He is waiting for us to seek Him. The past year was filled with many wonderful memories, but there were also many challenges. There were times I needed to trust, to grow, to become stronger in Him. Last week,while we were in the mountains, I noticed the light was not the same as I see it at home. There were beautiful pockets of light everywhere that you had to search for. I believe this is very similar as we live our days. Some days,the light is so evident we can’t help but bask in it, but other days we have to really look. By seeking His light, we are allowing ourselves to find joy on any given day, no matter what is going on around us. It is in those pockets of light that I relish the most; the beauty that is revealed when we aren't expecting it.

Our cabin has a river right behind it. You are loving to explore the river and tube for hours each day. It has been so fun to play with you in the water. Bubby told us he was Adventure Boy. Love your sweet spirit.
The three of you, just hanging out, getting ready to go down to the river and play. As I walked by the room, I stopped in my tracks. This is the beauty of life.
The first day we spent in the mountains we hiked down to a nearby covered bridge. When we got to the bridge, you all played in the river with Buster. At that moment, I was so grateful that Daddy had insisted we bring Buster on vacation with us. Admittedly, I thought it would be easier to leave him at home. I was reminded, once again, easier is not always better. It was such a gift to see you experiencing things for the first time with Buster right by your side. Sadly, he will not always be a part of our everyday lives, but I am thankful for the memories that include him. As I watched you all explore together, I couldn't help but wish I could freeze that moment forever. And so I did, the only way I could, with my camera.
