Reese's Name Gallery #32

 I met a new mom in Walmart not long ago and her daughter shares Reese's bday. It      was strange to look at that baby and think, "that's how big Reese would be..." and               "that's what she'd be doing...".  
I'm sure I'm not helping  you. And I'm sure I'm overstepping my boundaries. I'm not        trying to. My heart still aches for you, but in doing so, it keeps me ever mindful to pray with you and for you.  
I still don't understand - never will - but I trust God in a whole new way and have a         whole new perspective on life. I'm  fumbling with my words today...I guess what I'm        trying to say is I "see"  Reese everywhere and in that, I see God everywhere too.  
Thinking of her definitely helps me maintain focus and perspective - to see more clearly with "God eyes" than I ever have before.  
Things that used to be a big deal,  just aren't anymore.  And things I may have taken for granted before, are much more recognized, celebrated, and appreciated.
But to all who did receive Him, He gave them the right to be children of GOD, to those who believe in His name...

To think that little Reese has made such an impact on the big world.
Thank you for blessing me with your story. And for continuing to allow me, a longtime reader just not de-lurking :), to follow your journey.
So sweet!!

I wanted to come out of hiding (finally) and say hello. I'm Sarah, a mother of three, in Kansas. I've been reading since sweet Reese was born. Praying for you and your sweet family.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are renewed day by day. For our light and temporary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, and what is unseen in eternal.
