falling in love through photographs

One of the things I have loved best about blogging is checking out other bloggers' photos. Seeing a mama's expression as she holds her child for the first time...or the look on a little boy's face when he is "caught in the act"...or a beaming smile from a tiny girl as she runs through the sprinklers for the first time...I fall in love through photographs.

I want to share some photos with you. They are not photos which, by nature, would invoke our human love. No, to truly fall in love with these subjects calls for a love much greater than our own.

May you fall in love...with the love that only God can give for the broken, the weary, the downtrodden...through these photographs.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Man. I so wanted to click off that link when I clicked onto it. Faces make it so personal. Thanks for sharing.

@rebecca...hurts your heart, doesn't it? and my guess is that each lady's series of photos was taken in a time span of less than 10 years. just a guess on my part...but that hard of a life will age you quickly.

Oh, I love the photos on others'blogs too.....and this was VERY powerful. My gosh, I truly didn't realize for a moment that each row was a horrific progression of an individual......the changes.....heartbreaking....beyond that really....
