There is nothing like the tiny clasp of a child’s hand in your own. I have been able to capture that moment of each of my granddaughters’ first grip of their Papa’s hand.
As I enjoy the privilege of holding my granddaughter’s hands, I am grateful that the hand of God has hold of me, his child – guiding, protecting, providing and preserving:
5 This is what God the Lord says—
the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out,
who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it,
who gives breath to its people,
and life to those who walk on it:
6 “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,
7 to open eyes that are blind,
to free captives from prison
and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness. Isaiah 42:5-7 (NIV)

Beautiful Selfies 🙂
Thanks for the comment, Amy! Like you, I preferred to go for the deviation from the normal, full-face selfie to something that captured a passion of my selfhood. Thanks for stopping by this week.
I agree, the current selfies that are so popular tend to do nothing for me as a viewer. I understand that to the person capturing the image, they mean something. Photos like the ones in this post speak to me more because I think there is a universal here in addition to what it means to you.
Love, love, love this interpretation! How precious to capture these moments for your grandchildren. 🙂
Thank you, Kimberly. This is the first time I have had all three pictures together. It was fun to review those special moments with each of them.
