Precious little feet

We love Saturdays here in the Andrews cottage. It is the day we look forward to all week long. I crave having my husband home and Kate is all giggles and smiles when she wakes up and sees her dada. They already have such a special bond, it melts my heart. Saturdays are a bit different now with tax season in bloom. Dada spent the day at the firm so today was just Kate, the kitty and I. It's definitely going to take some time getting used to but we made the best of it today. The rain was pure bliss. There is nothing better than snuggling in a warm and cozy bed with a warm little snugly body next to you. There is also nothing better than the sweet little kisses that are made of slobber. Chris and I adore kisses from our Kate. She is so yummy, her smiles are so contagious. I can't get enough of her. We spent most of the afternoon in the glider in her room singing songs, praying and listening to the rain splash down on the window. As I sat there rocking her and holding her close it got me thinking about Heaven. How could it really be better than this? Seriously, life is so grand and Heaven is going to be better than this? It's going to be better than a trip to Maui? Sure is. It made my heart leap with giddiness. I can't even begin to imagine the glory and beauty that we are going to experience one day. My prayer as a momma is for our Kate to come to know and love and serve Jesus at a young age. Tears fill my eyes when I think about her accepting Jesus into her life and living a life that is pleasing to Him. We can hardly wait to hear her prayers, hear her sing songs to Jesus and to show others His love through her sweet spirit. So much to look forward to. But tonight, we are cherishing every second with our almost 5 month old. Soaking in every coo and squeal with joy, every grunt and groan. This is going too fast.
