Last weekend one of our awesome photographer friends treated us to a photoshoot! The photos, taken just a few days before Josiah’s 1st birthday, are intended to capture this period of waiting . . . and waiting . . . and waiting . . .
I found these yellow Adidas sneakers at the market just a few minutes before we started taking pictures. I wasn’t sure about the yellow, but went ahead and got them because they sort of matched Mark’s. But the more we worked with those little yellow shoes in the photos, and the more I look at them in Josiah’s stash of things, the more I love them! And it goes without saying . . . I can’t wait to put them on chubby little boy feet!
The umbrella is not just a prop . . . it really was raining! But it wasn’t the downpour we thought we might get, much to our adventurous photographer’s dismay! Thankfully the area under a nearby overpass provided great cover from the rain, and we took the rest of the photos there.
Thankful for fun projects while we prepare and wait. Thankful for friends who bless with their artistic skills. Thankful for the season of anticipation which grows our love for our son and little brother more and more with each passing day. And most of all, thankful that we can trust Him, knowing that all of the waiting is not in vain. He is bringing Josiah to us in His perfect time.
” . . . my prayer is to you, O Lord. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness.” Psalm 69:13
