A Little Something Special

God cares about even the smallest things.  I think He gives my girls a little something extra sometimes, just to show them His great love.  When you're a little girl, life is all about the little things.  

Take this picture, for example...


This was taken during Hannah's first trip to the Alamo.  She was so excited to have her picture taken (side note:  I've noticed with my three that while in foster care no one really ever took their picture, so when they came to camera-happy me, they got really excited to see themselves in photos).  Hannah had one request.  She wanted to be the only one in the picture.  Let me mention here that it was a super busy day at the Alamo.  People were everywhere.  There was no way I was going to be able to orchestrate that.  Good thing I didn't have to.  God did that for her.  Just because He could.

He did it for Ashley too.  Only her picture was taken at SeaWorld.  She wanted a picture with a dolphin.  They were in a huge tank swimming around, eating fish that people were dangling over the side. 

There was this attempt...


And this one...


Those pesky dolphins just wouldn't hold still.  But then this happened...


Call me naive, but I think God delights in things like this.  I think He looks at that little one stuck in a hard place and gives them a little something special to remind them of His love.  I think He does it for moms and dads, for grandpas and grandmas. 

1 Chronicles 16:34 says "O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever."  He is good and we are thankful, for everything, but especially for those little moments created especially for us.
