There is not a session in which I leave the hospital that I am not emotionally overwhelmed by the goodness of God’s grace and the way He chose to make this path wind and turn and continue to take me places I never thought possible.
When I met Ethan at my very first session three years ago, his eyes took my breath away. I was literally immediately taken swept into his heart because of the story his eyes told. And today, those eyes continue to see into my soul and bring out the best in each person in his family.
Ethan’s new love is his little brother. And the moment he met him, gave him presents and kisses brought smiles, laughter and an intense new love that Erica and Ryan never knew possible.
The joy that erupted in this room as their entire family celebrated together was special.
To have the opportunity to share is the reminder of God’s assignment for my life.
And this assignment can change. It can change daily. It changed three years ago from when I was a teacher and now I am a photographer. It changed as I became a wife and a mother. But it is not my calling. My calling is my salvation in Him and when I have the blessing to go to a session and share that, I am ALWAYS blown away.
Sharing with Crystal and Collin and hearing their story of His faith, His grace and His assignments He has given them testify again to the goodness of the Father we serve. Their assignments changed. Their homes changed. But God has been faithful every step of the way.
And leaving the session having the chance to hear how they have learned His grace from parenting (and how I can sooo relate!!) forms a bond in friendship for which I will forever be thankful.
Hampton McColl Bryant, you are so loved. Fearfully and wonderfully made. And the sweetest blessing to Maggie who is one of the best big sisters around.
