and life to those who walk on it:
I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind,
to free captives from prison
and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.

What a difference a month makes. She looks so much bigger now that she can sit on her own. I think she's teething: hard time sleeping, uncomfortable and wanting to nurse all of the time. Through it all she is still such a delightful child. So sweet and even tempered.

The Butterfly Alphabet by Kjell B. Sandved
A friend of mine saw Noah's alphabet art project and gave me this amazing book to borrow. The entire alphabet and numbers are found and pictured here in butterfly and moth wings. It took the artist 25 years and visits to more than 30 countries to discover all the letters in the alphabet.
"Butterflies truly are the 'symbol of the soul.' Their delicate beauty and dancing flight from flower to flower help create love for nature and the desire to protect them. . .Nature's message is loud and clear for all to see . . . it is written on the wings of butterflies!" - Kjell B. Sandved
On wings aloft across the skies - an Alphabet of butterflies. Each Butterfly in secret brings a letter hidden in its wings.The rainbow gave to butterflies spots of Color just their size. They Dance among the forest lights like floating flower petal sprites. Each lifted by a gentle breeze, they soar above with simple Ease. In their soundless Flutter, see a playful color melody. Gilded like a jeweled crown or like a fancy wedding gown. Each a tiny, stringless kite soaring up to treetop Height. So Innocent and unaware of the riches that they wear . . . the Joy a butterfly imparts awakens wonder in our hearts. Behold their lovely, sparkling flight, a Kaleidoscope of colors bright. The flutter of their little wings inspires Love for all small things. Merry nymphs in brilliant dress - Messengers of happiness. Butterflies enchant the hours sipping Nectar from the flowers. Ornaments floating in the air, charming all who see them there. They tumble on the breeze all day like carnival acrobats at Play. Quickly flitting, never still, free to wander where they will. Radiant colors catch the light - imagination taking flight. When butterflies in gardens meet, every flower smells more Sweet. Nature's angels fill the skies in Twinkling butterfly disguise. Each morning, butterfly wings Unfold their treasure: scarlet, blue and gold. So simple is the majesty of nature's Vibrant tapestry! Delicate Wings grace the air as gently as a whispered prayer. No delight is more eXquisite than a surprise butterfly visit. Daydreaming, our fancy flies Yonder with the butterflies. A butterfly wish - that all may see and love their Zigzag liberty!
God bless you on your new business venture Angel!
I have faith in you.
