Their small hands

Together they make a beautiful photo, the fingers and hands of our 11, 8, and 5 year old daughters. It reminds me of the Bible verse:
Luke 18:16 But Jesus called for them and said, "Let the small children come unto me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs." See Katie Lloyd's other meme participants here.

  13. I can just see Him saying those words...with a huge grin on His face as He looked at the children. The photo is a nice reminder of how the kids are His too.

    And thanks for stopping by. =)

  14. This is something I love about blogging--you end up taking photos that you might not have otherwise. How many parents have pictures of their kids' hands? And yet, and I'm sure that this is one you'll treasure years from now when they're all grown up.
