i love mah addy girl. ♥

i treasure these moments. 

for i am afraid that they will leave too soon.

i don't want to miss you. i want to stay here forever. 

the earth is green green here. you are here. and walking together, arms linked, makes this home. 

memories aren't as sweet as the moments, you know? i can't always just run to your arms and give you a hug or tell you a joke i just found. i can't look at your silly face. 

we can't go out for ice cream or play guitar and sing. we can't stay here forever. 

that hurts too much to think about. 

so let's just walk, letting these mountains hug our souls. 

let's just walk, listening to the creek run quietly beside us.

let's just walk. 


listening to the earth laughing and always moving, never taking a break. the people around us laugh and talk. but they are a different part of this moment. they're letting it slide out of their fingers. 

but i can't. 

i'm trying to keep this moment forever. i'm trying to keep it. 

"let go, Cally," whispers my Father. 

the leaves in the trees gently blow with the wind. 

with the time passing. 

i don't want to let this go. 

do i have to?

"let go."

deep breath in, and i watch our feet as we walk. 

perhaps it is good to hold onto the memories and savor the moments as you get them. you can't hold on forever. it doesn't work that way... for now. 

"thank you," i say. 

and you. 

oh you precious girl. 

oh this precious home. 

you say thank you too. and we send a prayer of thanks up to the Lord. 

because we both know we won't be able to live in this moment forever, but that was just what made it even more fresh to our souls. 

i treasure these moments. 

more than i could ever say.

p.s. could you pray for this boy I know? right now, even
if it is a 5 second prayer. he's fallen from God. it hurts so 
much. he needs prayers. more than he will ever know. 

thank you all. you're amazing.
