beauty for ashes: a story of love, perseverance and strength that comes from above

These two precious people mean the world to me. Their story is not one for the faint at heart. But their story is the most beautiful one I know.  If I had to sum up their life-journey in one word, it would be triumph. They will be the first to tell you that they have not arrived, they are not perfect, and they are still on their journey. It can’t be over this side of heaven, but it is one of victory. 

You can’t triumph without a trial. Beauty from ashes is their testimony. When it comes to dealing with being knocked down by what the world throws at you, these two are pros and picking themselves back up and trying again. The sourest bag of lemons magically turns into the most amazing lemonade you’ve ever tasted if these two have anything to do with it. If you believe that a square peg won’t fit in a round hole, they will prove you wrong.

My adventurous spirit, the desire to be a better person each and everyday and my ability to see the good when times get tough comes from them. All things are possible for those that put their trust in the Lord and never give up.

This photo session means so much to me. It’s stands for persevering no matter what. It conveys unconditional love. It means grace is powerful. It promises that God is our strength and in Him we can triumph victoriously.
