Everyone meet Little Ricky! This is a very special little girl… yes I said girl… If a boy can be named Sue then a girl can be called Ricky. What makes her so special to me is not just the unbelievable cuteness she oozes but she was actually born the day my beloved Richard went home to be with Jesus. The day we celebrated Richard going home his aunt told me his nickname when he was a little boy was Ricky. A few weeks ago when I shared that with a friend of ours I told her in a few years I want one more pet dog …a black and tan little boy Dachshund and I’m going to name him “Little Ricky”. Well God had another plan and she’s not a "he" and she’s not a "Dachshund"… She’s a 1lb Yorkie and she‘s my “Little Ricky” and even though she won’t know her Daddy this side of heaven she will know a blessed, blessed life. Her coming into my life at this time was more perfect then I knew. As you can tell I have had bloggers block... I’ve also had no desire to pick up my camera the last few weeks…but because I just had to share her sweetness I’m doing both :) What my heart has been going through I don’t even have words for yet. All I can say is God is still God and He is still good and even though my life feels so overwhelming at times right now... I cling onto Him because He never changes. I can say the day’s that the sorrow has tried to consume me the grace and love of God has always been a greater force to push it back as I lean into my Jesus. I know one day this wilderness time will end. My prayer is to come out like this verse in the Song of Solomon. “Who is that coming up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved?” Lord let it be me.
Yes I am in love.... with a Lord who knows how to comfort me in ways there are no words for.
