Madonna of the magnificat

November 12th, 2009

I cannot let this day pass without a hallelujah! Without a scream! Without a dance! Without wonder and awe! Without immensity of love and gratitude everlasting!

Perhaps you met this family in my backyard about eighteen months ago. Perhaps you met my friend Jen at the first Mother’s Plunge. Perhaps you know everything I’m about to show you. And if so, you know it bears repeating again and again. The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.


  1. What a beautiful picture of mother and child. Dreamy perfection.

  8. My tears of joy for you, Jen, from one mom who lost her first, a beautiful girl, but was later blessed with the astounding joy of the second, a beautiful boy, now 3 years old and wildly healthy. The look on your face, Jen, says it all. And a thank you to you, Karen, who always remembers our little girl with Jen's little one, in June.
