Verse Of The Week:
1 Corinthians 1:26-27 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called.

Have a good week, see you next time on Modest Monday!

The Other Side Of The Waiting Room

Yesterday my dad and I rushed to the hospital around two hours away to meet a cousin who had broken all of  the doctors expectations. We got there moments after Carter Lee was born. He was the tiniest baby I have ever seen, being just two pounds four ounces and was 15.8 inches long. Everyone said it was like holding a baby doll. I spent the day with my aunt helping her photograph his beautiful but all too short life. You see, my little cousin Carter lived only an hour and twenty minutes outside of his mother's womb.  
Later in the waiting room, I sat there watching the other families laughing and smiling and then I looked at the other side of the waiting room where a sister silently sobbed, an aunt stared off at nothing at all. A Grandparent sat with tears in their eyes instead of a smile. And I look at the others caught up in their own little world and it seems almost cruel that time can go on. I wonder how you ever can heal. I wonder how broken hearts can ever be put back together?  Who's hands can find all the tiny pieces of a jigsaw puzzle and craft them back together again? Who can make it look beautiful again?
Psalm 139:13  For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
Isaiah 61:3 To all who mourn... he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair...
How a mother can ever move on. How a photograph of a foot will knit together your memories. How after so many tears and so much pain you can ever be whole. It amazes me how different our story was compared to those so happy around us. How tears and happy laughter could mix. How life could change you forever in a blink of an eye. 

Psalms 34:18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

Today it seems as if it is cruel that everyone else's life goes on while someone else could be so shattered. Today I sit and I edit the photos I took yesterday and I cry and I pray that one day there will be beauty from all of this pain. 

Romans 8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.

And yet in the midst of the pain and heartbreak, I saw overwhelming love. I saw why God gave us family. I saw my dad kneel at the foot of my cousin's bed as she held her baby and I saw him pray.

I will never be the same. None of us will. So, for now, we will grieve will smile at the memories and we will wait for joy to come in the morning. 
This was the sunset on the way home... This is Carter's sunset.  

I will not say goodbye sweet cousin because I know that you wait for us in heaven.  I know that my siblings must have met you at the gates and you all wait for us with our Savior.  I long to be together with them and you.  Until that day... we send our love.

Denim Wrap Skirt and Floral Top

Good Morning! Welcome back to Modest Monday. I hope you had a great weekend we sure did, my dad and I re-arranged the chicken coops, re-purposed the old turkey house into a nice dog house (Much to Benjamin's delight) and yes I did manage to get a sunburn again.

 This week I am wearing a jean skirt and long sleeve (horse printed) shirt over a blue tank.


This outfit is modest comfortable and a great work outfit. I did all of my morning chores in it as you can tell by the grass all over my work boots.

Chilly Harvest Days Outfit


Who knows what time it is? Yep It's time for Modest Mondays! How was your week? I have a very bad sunburn this week from spending Saturday taking picture at a equine obstacle event. It was so much fun! I'm going to miss it since Saturday was the final competition.

 But we made great memories this summer that will stay with us for a lifetime. Considering the fact I wore a short sleeved shirt Saturday (It was in the 90's) my shoulders are very painful so I am going to use an outfit from last fall (Which I adore) and this week my sister is joining me! (Shhh! I haven't told her) Alright, now on for Modest Monday!

This week Brianna is wearing: a pink/purple skirt, burnt orange/rust colored shirt, cream tank top, brown leggings and boots. As for me blue scarf, burgundy/dark rust colored shirt, green tank top, printed skirt, brown leggings and boots.

And I am wearing a burgundy/brown long-sleeve shirt a green tank top, printed skirt, brown leggings, a blue scarf and boots.
