black & white wednesday, { this face }

~ your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that ~

her face
her face

this face

it lights up my world
in ways i never thought possible

when it smiles, i smile
when it laughs, i laugh

i can't even express the love i have for my child
it is beyond expression

she kisses me on the leg or arm or hand, when she can't reach my face
i'm floating on air

there was a time, before i met this girl in person
i loved her
but i had no idea just how much

the more time we spend together
the more ridiculously in love i fall
i didn't think it was possible
to love her more than i already do


the more i ponder over these things
the more i appreciate THE COST of God the Father,
GIVING HIS Son, to die, for me

For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

HIS love, HE SO LOVED me
i'm speechless
but i whisper, thank you, for being MY SAVIOUR

i'm incredibly blessed
