Precious Faces

See this beautiful face? Isn't this the most delicious face you've ever seen? Well, since..



the face of Aunt Kaki (Baby daughter, 1984), or...

these sweet faces of Roo and Em, posing for their Christmas card last year. Or...
maybe since these precious faces of Boo, CB and Aunt Joy (circa 1980). Or...


this adorable chubby face of Bubba Jonah in 2005.

But right now, as the Baby of the McFamily, she is the Face of Grace, and I want to stare and absorb the curliness and the blue-eyedness, and the creamy chubbiness, and the coyness, and the confidence of being well-loved and knowing she is the center of her family's universe. And she really knows how to cheese for the camera, too.

That face, that face, that wonderful face!
It shines, it glows all over the place.
And how I love to watch it change expressions.
Each look becomes the pride of my possessions.

I love that face, that face, it just isn't fair.
You must forgive the way that I stare,
But never will these eyes behold a sight that could replace

That face, that face, that face.

I love those eyes, those lips, that fabulous smile.
She laughs and spring goes right out of style.

Oh never will these eyes behold a sight that could replace
That face, that face, that face, that face,
that face, that face, that face.

I have been enjoying reading your blog for quite some time now. I enjoy your writing, and your references to scripture and God's greatness. I just had to say, what a wonderful, precious family you have! What beautiful pictures!

Thanks, Miz Lisa! I decided that all those precious faces, along with their husbands (3) now, are keepers. And God's Word is my Light! May He light your way today, also.
