I Heart Faces...Silhouettes

This week at I Heart Faces the challenge was silhouettes.  I knew what photo I wanted to use immediately when they posted this challenge!

This is a photo of my husband and our precious little boy.  We recently moved to Hawaii.  My husband, who was previously a part of the Army Reserve, went Active Duty as a Chaplain.  What a nice place for the Lord to send us for our first duty station!  He is getting ready to deploy this spring, so we are coveting our weekends together before he heads out.  This was taken somewhere on the North Shore, our favorite place on the island.

Daddy and J are best buds...the thought of them being apart breaks my heart, but I know that the Lord needs Bryan to do a bigger job than I can even fathom right now...and I am slowly learning to be okay with it.  We have done a deployment before, but no children were involved then, so it hurts a little more this time around, especially since another little one will make its way into the world while he is gone.  This photo is a great reminder to hug your children and enjoy every moment you have with them...

Enjoy the blessings the Lord has given you!

Much Love,

I Heart Faces...Week 33: Got to Wear Shades Photo Challenge


This week over at I Heart Faces they are having their weekly photo challenge, Got to Wear Shades.  I pullled this photo from a mini session I did with a senior this spring.  He wanted to rock out his Aviators and his Taylor guitar, and that he did.  He is a great kid and just got back from a mission trip to Russia where he helped serve by playing music in the streets, to bring people in to church to hear the gospel.  Can't wait to hear about where God takes him next!  Thanks, T, for letting me get out there and practice! 
Make sure that you go over and check out all of the other awesome entries for this week's challenge here.

The McClelland Family

The McClelland's are the sweetest family!  They have also joined us here in South Carolina and are getting ready to ship out to Germany soon.  K & A have two beautiful, little guys, Mr. G and Mr. P, and are expecting their first girl in the fall.  All of us ladies on post are very excited to buy some pink things for her closet. 

We are blessed to live right across the street from them, and every time we go outside, Mr. J, my sweet boy, yells for them to come and is the cutest thing ever!  All of the boys share a love affair with Thomas the Tank, so we enjoy watching them play (or fight, depending on the day haha) with their trains.

I really appreciate their sweet spirit!  They are so relaxed and easy going, we love them already!  Hope you enjoy...

The Bruce Family

I love the Bruce Family!  J is serving in the United States Army Chaplain Corp and is in class right now with my husband.  They have been such a blessing to me and my family this summer, and we are so glad to count them as friends.  The Bruce Kids, Miss M, Miss S, and Mr. D, have even decided that they would like to adopt my little guy...they call him Bruce #4 haha! 

We had an awesome family photo session a couple of weeks ago at the University of South Carolina's Horseshoe.  It was gorgeous there and I am so glad that the family was willing to bear with me through the Carolina heat!  I hope you enjoy the images of this beautiful family and will join me in praying for them as they prepare to serve the Lord in New York.
