Family Pictures

I was going through our pictures and realized I only had a few family pictures of us since London was born. We were going to the valley and my brother has a nice camera, so we asked him to take some pictures for us. I thought they turned out very well and I'm excited to get some printed to display in our home.

I love Macy's face in this one. It's like "ew Dad"

These two are my favorite.
Then another two.

Dora much?

We have church at 1 on Sundays, which is right in the middle of nap time. I was rocking London in the Mother's Lounge (where to be honest I am able to listen better to the speakers then actually sitting in the chapel) and Kyle was walking Macy around the church. In the foyer there is this picture...

... above the couches. Kyle asked Macy who was in the picture and she replied "Jesus Christ! We have to save him the the prickley forrest!!"

In my facebook feed these two stories were posted.

This one...
and this one

They were both about death.
One was from the eyes of a husband who unexpectedly lost his wife and premature baby.
One from a man that had terminal cancer and knew he was going to die.
They both have the realizations that things will be different and life will move on.
They both share their grief of not being able to be with their loved ones for the rest of this lifetime.

One knows that he will be with his wife again for eternity, and the other thinks he will cease to be.
As I read these two stories the spirit bore testament to me that death isn't the end of the road, it's only the beginning of eternity.
I have a testimony that there is life after death, and that our loved ones will be waiting there for us with open arms.

I wish I could see both husbands faces when they see their loved ones on the other side. One in pure joy that he will finally be with his sweet wife and daughter again, and the other in realization that his life is very much not over.
