Little Miss Evie Ru


My friends were blessed with another sweet, happy bundle of girl :>)
God is so kind-hearted, filling our lives with joy and special treasures.

I was thrilled to play for a short while with these sweet girls.  Mom-moments came back as I cuddled with Little Miss Evie Ru (Norah's pronouncement of her sister, Evelyn Ruth).  Do you remember just taking mom-time to rock and gaze at the perfect creation God has given in our little ones? And bending down to snuggle against their little heads, smelling freshly bathed and lotioned? Norah filled in with giggles and hugs for me when Evie was sleeping. Yep, that was my sweet day.    

Being inescapably a mother (once a mom, always a mom!) hear the echo of a mom's heart in
A Mother's Prayer by Keith and Kristyn Getty.



Before you close your eyes to sleep 
I have a promise still to keep 
As I hold you in my arms. 
I pray your little frame grows strong 
And that faith takes hold while you are young; 
This is my prayer for you.



Hold my hand; 
I'll teach you the Way to go. 
Through the joys, through the tears, 
The journey of these years, 
May you trust Him ‘til the end. 
May you trust Him in the end.


This world is not as it should be, 
But the Savior opens eyes to see 
All that's beautiful and true. 
Oh may His light fill all you are 
And the jewel of wisdom crown your heart; 
This is my prayer for you.


Hold my hand; 
I'll teach you the Way to go. 
Through the joys, through the tears,
The journey of these years, 
He is with us ‘til the end. 
He is faithful ‘til the end.


You'll travel where my arms won't reach 
As the road will rise to lead your feet 
On a journey of your own.
May my mistakes not hinder you 
But His grace remain and guide you through; 
This is my prayer for you.



Take His hand 
And go where He calls you to. 
And whatever comes, seek Him 
With all your heart; 
This will be my prayer for you. 
Mmmm Father, hear my ceaseless prayer; 
Oh keep her in your care.



(This is so sweet... I didn't prompt her to kiss her little sister.)


Dún do shúil (Close Your Eyes) 
Dún do shúil, a rún mo chroí 
(Close your eyes, oh love of my heart) 
A chuid den tsaol, 's a ghrá liom 
(My worldly joy, my treasure) 
Dún do shúil, a rún mo chroí 
(Close your eyes, oh love of my heart) 
Agus gheobhair feirín amárach... 
(And you will get a gift tomorrow)


Father, keep her in Your care.
