And when Tate met Jesus it became even more apparent that adoration is what would sustain them.
Then, when Brinkley met Jesus just a few short years later. Adoration is what lifted them up. What led them to Him every single day.

And sunflowers? They symbolize adoration. The meaning stemming from the actual name – the sun. The sun that God created first that we would have Light. And that His light would shine for eternity.

In fact, in my devotion just this morning it said, “Who do you know that exudes this joy?” And my first thought was Whitney. Her contagious smile and beautiful laugh that reminds us of PURE joy. Pure, simple joy that comes from being rooted in Him.
The Son. Because they absolutely adore Him and they will continue to with every single breath they take.
This time treasured together in the sunflowers as Charlie made us laugh and Hudson so loving, as always, was the perfect way to capture this new life growing in Whitney’s belly. This new life created so perfectly by Our Creator. The sustainer of Life.
