..Come thou fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace..
..Streams of mercy never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise...

Today was one of the most wonderful photo shoots ever. Not just because I had two beautiful, wonderful girls to photograph, but because I see so much of their mother and grandmother in them. I know Jeanie misses her mother awfully and I know that Alathea would have loved more time with her grandma.
Yet, God's ways are not our ways!(that bunny was a gift to Alathea from her grandma - let me tell you, she LOVES it)
Jeanie and Alathea are following in Mrs. Bowers footsteps - they are both beautiful, bold, strong and loving. I respect the Bowers family so much!!! (and, I know this song isn't particularly "accurate" or "doctrinally sound" but I still like it...)

In My Daughter's Eyes
Martina McBride
In my daughter's eyes I am a heroI am strong and wise And I know no fear
But the truth is plain to seeShe was sent to rescue meI see who I wanna beIn my daughter's eyesIn my daughter's eyes everyone is equalDarkness turns to light And the world is at peaceThis miracle God gave to meGives me strength when I am weakI find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes
And when she wraps her hand
Around my fingerOh, it puts a smile in my heartEverything becomes a little clearerI realize what life is all about
It's hangin' on When your heart has had enoughIt's giving more When you feel like giving upI've seen the lightIt's in my daughter's eyesIn my daughter's eyes I can see the futureA reflection of who I am And what will beThough she'll grow And someday leaveMaybe raise a familyWhen I'm gone I hope you see How happy she made meFor I'll be thereIn my daughter's eyes
