when she was 3, I realized why God impressed upon us to name her Karis..

because we needed more Grace. and so did she.

when she was 4, I realized, hey. this kid is just like me!

I adore how utterly filthy she gets, while wearing her favorite ‘donut dress’…I love that she had a huge big ginormous meltdown because we didn’t understand her need for her own rocking chair for her to sew in…I love that in whatever situation we have, she can make a card for it….I love and understand her need to be outside getting dirty….I love her passion for her few best friends…I love her need to watch a good movie with not one but two bowls of popcorn. I love her fierceness in her play, her compulsion in loving others, her compassion for the hurting and her honest longing to meet Jesus.
