tashalynnegregory Seven months of your beauty gracing our lives outside of the womb. Seven whole months of your gentle spirit and peaceful smiles bringing joy to our family. Those tiny bottom teeth that have just broken through are reminders of the inevitable breakthrough that comes with the changing of the seasons and the aging of our hearts. As we watch you grow alongside your brother we can't help but feel an acute awareness of our own mortality. In every fleeting moment of reflection we see glimpses of the future that you will carve out for yourself and of the life you will eventually build outside of this home that we share. As you discover how your body propels you forward through the awkward phases of rolling, pulling and most recently crawling, it's a reminder that sometimes the grit and gray of this life will lead us to circumstances where crawling and clawing are the only means by which we have to move forward. And though some days it may feel as though you are unable to take even one more breath under the weight of the challenges you face, know that God's mercy and everlasting love will always provide a hand to hold you up, if you're simply willing to let go. You see dear one, it's in the letting go that we truly find all that we were meant to possess and it's in the hope of the unknown that we find the faith to sustain our ever wandering hearts. So go forward baby girl knowing that this home was always meant to be a launching toward your purpose and your passion. And if ever the time comes where you doubt your ability to continue or your sense of worth, listen for that still small voice that's been holding you all along. In those whispers you will find everything you'll ever need. You are such a gift to us miss Indra, love always - mama xo

tashalynnegregory Even in the desolation of the frigid winter, His light reveals a breathtaking wonder that reminds us of His presence. In your coldest, darkest, most hopeless days - He is with you. Forever encircling you with His everlasting love. #letthelightin #sundog #Winnipeg #winter #prairiesky #beauty #creation #hisgloryfillstheearth 3w

tashalynnegregory When the time comes for us to move on from this house we've made home, I will bring with me many memories of my sweet babies in the beautiful rays of light that dance through our living room windows. Though I've found myself more critical of myself and our home lately, certainly a byproduct of the inner havoc I am working through, I am truly and immeasurably grateful for this life I live. I'm praying that this year brings a change in perspective for this mama heart and that each day whispers simple reminders of God's goodness. Lord let my eyes remain open to your light. Flood the darkest places, fill the cracks and spaces. Let me find my joy in you and only you. #youareenough #yourloveneverfails #letthelightin #indragray #mysweetgirl 3w

  •   rebsturbs @tashalynnegregory she's so sweet! Where do you find those cutie pants clothes?! I've been on the search and not finding much. 1mon
  •   tashalynnegregory @rebsturbs : hey lovely! These were a gift but I'm pretty sure Tiny Tree Hugger is where they are from. And also Nest family Centre carries some of these brands. Otherwise - follow brikhouse and see who they follow to lead you down the never ending abyss of small shop madness!!! 1mon
  •   rebsturbs Perfect! Thanks for the tips 1mon

tashalynnegregory I hope you know I'm trying. In raising you I'm also raising me. I didn't know the past would kick my ass like it has sweet one. But I'm pressing onward. Trusting that God can heal these deep wounds and that I can give you all of the best parts of me because they reflect God's heart for you. There's nothing on earth I wouldn't do to love you well. Please forgive me when I don't. #mywholeheart #silasezra #mysweetboy #2016 #letterstomyson #truthislouderthanlies #loveyouso 1mon

tashalynnegregory I want to be a person who is marked by her ability to find the beauty in all things and all people. This year I'm committed to searching for the beauty before in the midst and from the ashes and most importantly to finding the beauty within my own heart that I've somehow convinced myself doesn't actually exist. But Love whispers differently and I'm going to spend myself searching until that diamond in the rough exterior is just a little less rough. #findingthebeauty #truthislouderthanlies #speakinglifetomyself #searchingforgodinallthings #beautyfromashes #2016 1mon

tashalynnegregory Indra Gray. Today you turn six months old. I can't believe that we are halfway to your first birthday. In many ways it feels as if you just arrived into our family and yet the beautiful paradox is found in the way it feels as though you've always been here. We celebrated your first Christmas yesterday. It was a simple morning, just us four. There were no wrapped gifts or big anticipatory moments but there was a warm home filled with a lot of love. Our prayer for you sweet girl is that you would grow to know that love comes in many forms. Sometimes it appears in ribbons and bows and gifts of great magnitude but mostly it comes in the everyday simplicity of simply showing up. You could be given this whole world in all of its material wonders, but without the hope of your blessed savior who came to earth to give you the glorious gift of eternity, those material possessions would not mean a thing. You may find yourself in seasons of lack and of want, where doubts and fear and worry creep in - but always always know baby girl that there will never be a time you find yourself without His everlasting love. And that truly makes you rich beyond measure. Love, mama xo #indragray #mysweetgirl #youaresoloved #greatestgift #beyondmeasure 1mon

tashalynnegregory From our family to yours - Merry Christmas. May you always know how deeply loved you truly are. In your joy and your sorrow, in your doubt and your fear, in your courage and your retreat, in your brokenness and your repair, not even death can separate you from His great love. #greatestgift #merrychristmas #lovecamedown #youaresoloved #athrillofhope #mybabies #silasezra #indragray 1mon
