Our girl and joy

Today we experimented with trying to get a photo that would serve as a temporary header for our blog in its very early days.  Our youngest daughter Eve kinda exudes joy (well, except when she doesn’t but that’s a different matter) and since joy is in our blog’s name we thought she would make a great model! What do you think?


As you can see, from an early age, our
girl has been excellent at expressing
her love of life. You would never know
looking at this photo just how sick this
sweet baby girl was just a few months
before this photo. She is beautiful
evidence of the power of love and prayer!

Onward we go toward unencumbered joy!!
