Our girl loves flowers. And so, over and over again throughout the day we see and hear her going "sniff, sniff" ("flower" in sign language). It's hilarious and very sweet. Tonight, we had a friend come over and after waving to him, she quickly pointed at the flowers on the counter and went "sniff, sniff." It's very important to Tali that everyone who enters our house sees the flowers and loves them as much as she does.

I want to appreciate the beauty of what God has made like my daughter. There is not a day that goes by that Tali does not beg to go outside (aka: point outside, sniff-sniff, then whine a bit) and look at the flowers. They absolutely captivate her. How many times do we simply become familiar with a beautiful flower, or a sunset, or a cool breeze? And to think that God made it all.

"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork." Psalm 19:1

The beauty of what Tali is sniffing about is a testimony about God. All that He has made loudly declares that there is a God and He is good. So sniff away, sweet girl, and maybe your mommy will join you.

  1. I love your stories!!!! Keep them comin'! How is your body feeling these days, friend? Thank you for the previous post about the joy of serving your husband. It was a great encouragement to me. O! I wish that I could drive over there right now and hang out with you!

  2. A little girl who loves flowers! Another reason for Pops to love her. Tell her that when she comes to San Diego I'll have lots of fun flowers for her to sniff. We even have flowers in the winter! How cool is that? Love, Pops
